Business: Ira Levy purchases 800 Broad St. at Turner McCall with plans for possible housing in addition to more business tenants.

Perhaps a couple of new floors of apartments. Some national brand business tenants (including naming rights). And some other buildout of both larger and smaller spaces.

Those are the initial plans Ira Levy has for what’s currently known as the Manis Business Center at the crossroads of Northwest Georgia — Broad Street and Turner McCall.

Almost two years after Roger Manis closed on the purchase of the former Georgia Power offices at 800 Broad St., one of the most highly visible spaces in the region has changed hands for approximately $2.9 million; the asking price had been $3.2 million.

Jimmy Byars of Hardy Realty had the listing and the real estate company will continue to manage the site as well.

Levy called the purchase “a good investment” with plans to make it “a good thing for downtown again.” He has no timetable for changes but adds they’re in talks with several companies about boosting leasing, already at 60-plus percent.

The site was marketed as follows:

“Approximate 43,000-square-foot office building on 1.58 acres at one of the highest traffic count intersection in Rome, Ga. The property consists of two connected buildings that are fully sprinkled. The site has 119 parking space on two levels. Bottom parking is a covered garage with gated access. These buildings have multiple offices as well as large areas for cubicles, as well as a 3,100-square-foot auditorium/training room. One of the buildings has a grand two story foyer entrance. Each of the buildings has an elevator. Currently the building is 60% leased with eight tenants with an income of $24,915 a month. Another 11,000 square feet is left to lease to potential tenants.”
