If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

A downtown Augusta landlord is looking for someone to put a business into an unused space on Augusta’s Front Street.  The space, which could be split in two, has a total of 4,500 square feet of space.  It has direct access to the Kennebec River Rail Trail and the Kennebec River.

You’ll have some great neighbors, too.  Like Cushnoc’s Meet Me Out Back and East Point Recreation, the area's new Jet Ski rental place.

While the rent would be free, the tenant would be responsible for cleaning up the space and doing build-out.  Ya' know, painting the place, putting in the correct lighting, putting in shelves, a point-of-sale system, and anything else your specific business needs to operate.  Plus, they’d be responsible for utilities and all other costs of doing business.

Obviously, it would a great spot for any business that would add to the summer appeal of Augusta’s waterfront.  Bike rental shop, ice cream stand, small café, etc.  Just think, your business could help make Augusta’s waterfront a fun summer destination.

If you would like more details or to see the space, you can email director@augustadowntown.com

Don’t wait, though.  There’s been a lot of interest in the space(s) and the landlord plans to start showing it later this week.
