Owners trot out plans for old mounted police station


A 109-year-old building – stuck behind a Walgreens and just off Union Avenue – is about to receive some overdue love.

Lexington Asset Management plans to spend up to $1.8 million carrying out an adaptive-use project once 189 S. Barksdale is placed on the National Register of Historic Places and becomes eligible for historic tax credits.

The front of the 8,500-square-foot, two-story building will become company headquarters, and the back will be seven apartment units.

The design of the adaptive reuse is a joint project of Warren Architecture and archimania.
