New residential-commercial complex coming to Water Street

A new residential and commercial building at 289 Water St. will be considered at the June 19 Excelsior City Council meeting.

The development is planned for the 0.22 acre, 10-stall parking lot on Water Street and Third Street, located between Vinaigrette and Excelsior Brewing Co.

The property is owned by Brian H. Burdick, a Greenwood resident and Burdick Properties Inc. president and owner.

“Our goal is to bring in a new vibrant retail business or businesses that is a good mix for all in Excelsior,” he said. “After a lot of hard work from city staff, the engineers, architects and us, we’re finally here. We’ve always had the support of the business community and the community as a whole, which is kind of nice. They would like to see some new and vibrant retail business along Water Street and they’re excited for that.”

Burdick also owns Hour Glass Cleaners, 426 Lake St., and 287 Water St., which includes Vinaigrette, Wine Republic and Olive’s Fresh Pizza. Burdick renovated the interior and exterior of 287 Water St. in 2009 for $500,000.

The 289 Water St. property is planned as a two-story building with retail on the first floor and residential space on the second floor.
