PROVIDENCE — The renovation of a pair of buildings at the corner of Weybosset and Mathewson streets has entered a final stage, according to the developer, which is marketing the available commercial spaces for leasing.

The combined property, called 225 Weybosset, will include four retail spaces, according to ASH NYC. The sizes range from 800 square feet to 1,600 square feet, according to an overview.

They are zoned for commercial tenants such as a restaurant, cocktail bar, coffee shop, art gallery, or ‘speakeasy-style’ bar.

The largest space is on the corner facing the Providence Performance Arts Center, and includes a 1,000-square-foot basement. This was originally a pharmacy. The remaining spaces front Mathewson Street, the largest being 934 square feet, with access to a basement. Two smaller spaces, one a former speakeasy, are 800 and 916 square feet.

In addition to the street-level commercial space, the renovation will create 12 new residential apartments on the second floor above.

The development team, ASH NYC, most recently completed the 32 Custom House project. It once again is partnering with KITE Architects of Providence.

The design of the new apartments has maintained the original interior panels, and will add high-end fixtures and finishes, along with large windows that will face the performing arts center and Grace Episcopal Church.

The residential and retail spaces should be completed for a summer occupancy, according to the development team.

In a statement, Ari Heckman, founding partner and CEO, said the company is hoping to attract a mix of tenants, which could include “cocktail bars, barbershops, coffee shops or bakeries, record stores, creative studios, fast casual (bagels, tacos, etc.). Ideally vibrant, independent local businesses with a mix of community favorites and startups looking for their first brick and mortar.”
