Case Studies

Transforming downtown, one building at a time

The Mann Building

273 W. Central Avenue

In 2014, the Mann Building, at the corner of Central Avenue and Third Street, was literally falling down, with a tarp instead of a roof.

Six/Ten acquired it and began its renovation almost immediately, further promoting the “café culture” of downtown. Originally built as part of the Williamson (Ritz) Theater, we’ve kept its original Mediterranean style, adding an outdoor seating area, a new roof and advanced electrical systems. Central Tavern is open 7 days a week, and retail space is still available on Third Street.
