A retail site in Five Points that houses a brewery and soul food cafe, among other tenants, is under new ownership.
2736-2804 Welton Street LLC purchased 2736 Welton St. — known as Five Points Plaza — as well as 2748, 2800 and 2804 Welton St. this week for $6 million, according to county records.
Denver-based The Flyfisher Group formed the purchasing LLC, according to state records.
The Five Points Plaza parcel, 2736 Welton St., consists of 13,565 square feet on a 0.5-acre lot, according to records. The adjacent 2748 Welton St. parcel consists of 2,750 square feet on a 0.14-acre lot.
The 2800 and 2804 Welton parcels, which total 0.14 acres, are a parking lot.
The properties were sold by Denver-based real estate firm VanWest Partners, which paid $1.95 million in June 2014 for Five Points Plaza and the parking lot. The firm purchased 2748 Welton St. in October 2017 for $1.34 million.
VanWest’s Forrest Bassett and Jay Johnson represented the firm in the transaction.
Johnson said when VanWest purchased it, Five Points Plaza was only 10 percent leased, with the Welton Street Cafe its sole tenant. The DMV had recently closed an office at the site.
Four years later, the Welton Street Cafe is still serving soul food and has been joined by other tenants, including Spangalang Brewery, restaurant Zivix and fitness studio Flex Yoga + Barre.
The 2748 Welton building, meanwhile, was vacant when VanWest purchased the site, with a dry cleaner the most recent occupant. Johnson said the firm gutted the building during renovations. Kuni Sushi plans to open in the space.
“With the increase in both real estate values and overall density in Five Points and the surrounding submarket, we believed the timing was appropriate to sell the project,” Johnson said.
