The massive warehouse that is known as Resnick’s Mattress Warehouse, or 99 S William St has sold. This building takes up an entire block of Liberty Street and is bordered by Benkard and S. William. I was able to speak to the new owner who does not have any set plans for this space yet. For now it will be used as storage, but he is open to the idea of retail space in the future.
If you have ever seen this warehouse up close, it is huge and has tons of windows that have been filled in with blocks. It would be amazing to see them opened up again like Atlas Industries is doing to their warehouse windows just across the street. There is another huge warehouse in back of this one at 109 S. William St that doesn’t look like it has much going on at the moment. The potential is definitely there for this entire area to reinvent itself. There are many other warehouses in the vicinity, it’s almost like a mini meat packing district à la 1990’s.
