Hayek Retail by the Lake!
Blackwatch ’68 purchased this 100 year old property from the Quandt family the owners of the famed Hayek Pharmacy. Ironically once the Elan Peltz and Peter Quandt began talking they realized they shared not just the passion for this building but also knew each other’s family from Nicolet high school! A deal was quickly put together and a gut rehab restoration followed. The second level is now home to three very large boutique apartments and tenants living in the apartments even remember working summers as kids at the Hayek Pharmacy so the the circle is complete! The building continues to shine bright at night with the restored cleaned up neon Hayek Signs that are located on two sides of the building and pop on each night at dusk.
Situated less than three blocks from Atwater Park and Lake Michigan at the corner of North Downer and East Capital Drive, this 12,000 square foot property is filled with history and now offers tenants a one of a kind living and work experience.
Stop by Home Again and speak to Kristina and get your sofa or table or pillow redone. This outstanding new shop is a huge area treasure. From the minute you walk in the door, you will see all the great cozy historic details that were reclaimed from the original white and black tiled flooring to the cream city brick to the bathroom with the original wood timbers stuck in the floor. The huge storefront windows offer a welcoming space to enjoy this revitalized Shorewood property.
