Fort Conde Village

5 posts in this topic

Larry Posner,the developer who has rennovated the Ft Conde Village area, is having some difficulty in working with the city to complete the project. His original lease with the city said he would complete the projects by 2006. He now has money to complete two more buildings, but does not want to move forward until he works out some differences with the city. I don't know all the details, but it sounds like the city needs to get back with this guy and complete some more projects. He is doing us a great service by rennovating the most historic area of town that remains intact.

It is a shame that the city let these historic areas go to build the civic center and the Interstate. Now all we have left is a hadful of buildings in Ft Conde village. We could have been Charleston with a few modern additions.

Mobile city officials proposed giving Fort Conde Village developer Larry Posner another 18 months to restore four buildings in the area. Posner has renovated nine of 13 buildings since 1998. He plans to renovate the two largest remaining buildings, the Spear-Barter House and the Hall-Ford House, and then the two other buildings on St. Emanuel Street. The Spear-Barter House and its two outbuildings would become a 6,000 sq ft office building, and the Hall-Ford House would become a 10-room bed-and-breakfast.

This is great news if he actually renovates them. They have been sitting there for years like that. I used to work in that office park. The buildings are just falling apart. He needs to work on them as soon as possible.

Developer Larry Posner hopes to finish the two largest projects in Fort Conde Village, the circa 1857 Spear-Barter House and the adjacent Hall-Ford House, by early 2009. The restorations are expected to cost at least $2.5 million.

Two small buildings in the Village still need to be renovated, including the future site of the Mobile Medical Museum. Posner plans to build apartments, more bed and breakfast units and retail space on vacant land in the Village.
