Hoffmann building


Greensboro City Councilwoman Nancy Hoffmann is planning to sell her building downtown on Lewis Street.

The building is under contract with Andy Zimmerman — who owns the property next door that will house Gibb’s Hundred Brewing and Greensboro’s Makerspace — he said. Zimmerman says they plan to come to agreement for purchase and close on the deal within 60 days, after which he will immediately start renovating.

One of the concepts Zimmerman has in mind for the building is a co-working space, he said.

The building is near the corner of South Elm Street where Table 16 is located. It recently made headlines when the city retracted a citation to Hoffmann for violating the city’s good repair ordinance because the proper procedure wasn’t followed, according to the News & Record.

Hoffmann, who represents District 4 in central western Greensboro, also bought and renovated a building on South Elm Street that now houses Scuppernong Books.
