A new Mobile business will give crafters and do-it-yourselfers a new place to create their own custom-made accessories, gifts, and home décor. AR Workshop Mobile, a boutique DIY shop that hosts public and private instructor-led workshops, will open on Saturday, April 27, 2019, with a grand opening launch party at 4 p.m. – 10 p.m. at its location, 6601 Airport Boulevard, next to Montego’s restaurant.
This shopping center at 6601 Airport Boulevard was originally developed in 2007. At the time, Starbucks occupied the space that is now known as Montego’s restaurant. The original developers sold the property to an investor which over-leveraged the acquisition through a Commercial Mortgage Backed Security (CMBS). The CMBS market was one of the contributing factors to the cause of the Great Recession. As a result, the property subsequently went into foreclosure. Because of Merrill P. Thomas Company, Inc.’s conservative investment principals, we were able to capitalize on the opportunity to purchase the property in 2013. Since our acquisition, the center has maintained healthy occupancy. The property is situated on Airport Boulevard on an outparcel to Providence Hospital and is adjacent to the Walmart Neighborhood Market and Community Bank.
