North Street property could have new life in Auburn: Offices, food, and more?

A long-vacant property on North Street in the city of Auburn could have new commercial life, after a proposal was recently brought to the Planning Board.

The Auburn Planning Board recently took a closer look at a proposal for a new commercial center, North Pointe Commons, to be built at the intersection of Standart Avenue and North Street. The development would consist of two structures, estimated to be about 6,000 square feet each, with the potential to house a medical office and a food business.


The center would feature 74 parking spaces and a drive-thru in one of the structures, making it ideal for a food business. Kyle has reached out to several potential lessees, but has yet to secure any commitments.

The North Pointe Commons site was previously occupied by Jam-O’s Car Wash, and before that, was slated to be the location of Prison City Brewing’s urban farm facility. Now, it is a vacant 2.13-acre property waiting for revitalization as part of Kyle’s portfolio of commercial properties, which also includes the Nolan Block downtown, according to The Citizen.
