NWSoCo officially acquired the historic Clark’s building on June 30, 2017. The 120+ year-old building is the focus of a major, three-year rehabilitation project, affectionately dubbed “The Main Street Project” by NWSoCo, which aims to convert the 14,664-square foot structure into a mixed-use building, featuring commercial space for lease downstairs, to include a grocery store and residential loft apartments upstairs.
The Main Street Project is being made possible by NeighborWorks America (which has contributed $110K toward the project) and by support from the City of Pueblo’s Planning Department, Pueblo Urban Renewal Authority and the Downtown Association. Additionally, the assistance of Brian Prichard from the Bank of the San Juans and Kendall Curtis from ReMax Associates, played an integral role in the acquisition of the building and making this project a reality.
NWSoCo believes this project will help bolster the current and ongoing efforts to revitalize downtown and create a vibrant, bustling city-center; attracting business, reducing crime and creating a hub for culture, art and pride in Pueblo. The Main Street Project will further propel NWSoCo’s mission to promote healthy, vibrant neighborhoods.
