San Diego company scoops up another downtown spot
December 04, 2016 |By STAN BULLARD |Cleveland Business
MVP Reit Inc., a San Diego-based public company that invests in automobile parking properties, is the new owner of the Lincoln Building in downtown Cleveland after paying $7.3 million for it to a local investor group.
Lincoln is a seven-story building at 708 St. Clair Avenue that was built in 1917. The building is best known as the former home of the long-closed Pat Joyce’s Tavern downtown, a popular restaurant and bar in the 1970s.
The structure incorporates about 500 parking spaces as well as retail space on its first floor and a floor of empty offices on its top floor, according to a Nov. 18 filing by MVP with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The same filing includes the purchase price.
The Blue Vault Summit could not have been more perfectly timed. This gathering of the Broker Dealer and Sponsor communities provided insightful and open discussion from several vantage points. These conversations are paramount, especially in a time of significant regulatory change.
