The former Hard Bean Café at 201 E. Third St. has been vacant for about a year.
The storefront space at the northeast corner of Third and Webster streets, is cattycorner from the William Elek Plumbing Building we profiled a few weeks back.
We will assume that statistics provided by the city’s Department of Community and Economic Development about the Elek building are the same here: That means 25,000 residents, 9,326 households, 1,128 daytime employees and an annual 2010 consumer spending of $233,181,000 within a mile of this storefront, which, once again, is in the heart of the city’s burgeoning SouthSide arts and entertainment district.
In its Internet listing, the Dietrick Group LLC is describing the space available as having 2,754 square feet; one story, with a loft, hardwood floors and space for outdoor seating with a city permit. Dietrick is asking for $12.50 per square foot a year in rent.
There is on-street parking along Third Street and a small municipal parking lot on the other side of Webster Street.
What goes here, Bethlehem? Tell us in the comments.
