Phase Two of Yankee Trader Renovations to Start Soon

Renovation work will be starting soon on two historic buildings at the northwest corner of Vine and North High streets, marking the second phase of work on what is now being referred to as the Yankee Block — the three buildings once occupied by the Yankee Trader carnival supply business and novelty store. Two retail storefronts are planned for the first floor, along with about 8,500 square feet of office space on the upper two floors. An additional 4,300 square feet of space in the basement will also be available. The first phase of the Yankee Trader project was finished in 2013 and involved the complete renovation of the five-story building at 463 N. High. That building, dubbed Yankee on High, is now home to Bareburger, Denmark on High and 11 loft apartments — as well as the offices of the project’s designer and developer, Triad Architects. A recent tour of the Phase Two buildings revealed plenty of original features like tin ceilings, hard wood floors, and a unique cast-iron staircase connecting the second and third floors.
