Hayek Retail by the Lake!


Square Feet



Blackwatch ’68 purchased this +100 year old property from the Quandt family, the owners of the famed Hayek Pharmacy. The family felt the property would be in great hands given the developer’s passion to reinvigorate the 12,000 sq.ft. property.

Situated less than three blocks from Atwater Park and Lake Michigan at the corner of North Downer and East Capital Drive, the retail shops are now home to Skin Bar and Home Again.

On the second level the restored Downer Ave. beauty boasts three boutique apartments including large modern open plan living, exposed brick, original hardwood, high end kitchens and bathrooms, elegant outdoor spaces, and office for hybrid work/live.

The original neon signs have been restored and illuminate every night providing the neighborhood with a wonderful feeling of nostalgia.


Current Tenants:

“Blackwatch '68 hit it out of the park with the Hayek apartments. They are awesome!”
