18683708 - Gorgeous Commercial Building on Main Street Joseph

2 S Main St., Joseph, OR


Built in 1918 as a bank, this incredible building avails itself to many different uses while offering classic, period finishes that your clientele will notice the moment that they enter. The enclosed, double entry has impressive heavy, wood frame and glass doors that make a statement as soon as you walk in. The 16 foot tall ceilings give a feeling of expansiveness to the space that measures 27x80. In addition to the approximate 2160 sf on the main level, there is a loft work or office space with running water in the rear and also a partial basement that works well for storage. The total square footage according to the tax assessors office is 2888 sf. Currently used as an art gallery and fine jewelry studio and retail store, there are many other potential uses limited only by your imagination. The corner lot offers great visibility with ample parking on 2 sides.

Original dark wood accents are around the windows and also on features retained from the 100 year old bank. There are 2 vaults on the main level and a third in the basement. They can still be used for security or just a classy storage but they are certainly conversation pieces as are the Carrara Marble wainscot and bank teller stands that are built into the interior. An original intricate 1” x 1” patterned tile floor covers most of the main area with carpet and laminate wood floors in some areas.

The main level has a workshop that has its own street entrance and it could easily be a separate retail or office space. The work shop has great lighting and a loft area for additional work, or office space. There is a sink on each level. The main part of the building has a bathroom.

The building has a brick exterior that has been well maintained and the roof had an IB 60 mil membrane installed in 2010 that has a 15 year warranty. The sewer line from the building to the city was upgraded in about 2013. The building has a forced air oil furnace heat and a Lennox air conditioning system on the roof. Both have had regular maintenance. Additional blown in insulation was added in the ceiling to R-38 and in some walls to R-15. There is a security system that is monitored by Safeguard in Enterprise OR for $45 per month.

The building speaks to integrity and quality and that will convey into the presentation of any business that operates within.
