Robinson adds to 200 block holdings in downtown Rome with former antiques store purchase (already owns 239 Broad, Vogue).

This Google impage shows the former antiques location at 241 Broad St. recently purchased by Wayne Robinson. The photo also shows you some of his other 200 block holdings, including the Crawdaddy’s building on the left (since remodeled) and The Vogue on the far right.

 

Wayne Robinson likes what he sees in the 200 block of Broad Street, so much so that he’s purchased another large building there. Robinson has paid $330,000 for 241 Broad St., a one-time antiques shop that has been behind covered windows of late.

Crews already are inside 241 Broad St. as renovations begin (Thursday at 5:45 p.m.) Hometown photo.

Robinson says he bought the building from local business owners who earlier picked it up at auction. For now, Robinson says he plans to gut the building and restore the original frontage. There are 4,000 square feet on each of the two floors that will come down to just the bricks, he says.

He has no tenant in mind at this time.

Robinson did the same with what is again known as The Vogue, at 247 Broad St., which has become a hot downtown events space with an ongoing contract with Ginny Kibler and Harvest Moon. Next up at The Vogue: A Mardi Gras party on Feb. 22.

He also purchased 239 Broad St., the home of Crawdaddy’s Seafood/Grill, prior to the Bradys opening the restaurant following a successful food truck business. Robinson recently restored the front of that building and has plans to renovate the second story as well.
