One Commercial Real Estate Leases
4,000SF Downtown Portsmouth Restaurant
June 26, 2017 – Portsmouth, NH – Bob Marchewka of One Commercial Real Estate recently represented Scott and Karen Logan in their lease of 409 The Hill, a property in Downtown Portsmouth and the previous home of their business, The Blue Mermaid Restaurant. Marchewka’s clients, Logan Properties LLC, leased the 4,000 square foot property to Tom and Jenny Nelson of Nelson Enterprises. The Nelsons will be renovating the building and opening a new restaurant on The Hill this summer.
After 23 years of business in Portsmouth, Scott and Karen Logan temporarily closed the doors of the Blue Mermaid Island Grill with plans to reopen in Kittery, Maine. Their new location, set to open by late September, will allow them the space to expand their catering business and provide salsa production for the restaurant.
“Working with Bob was great,” Scott Logan said. “He is professional, personable and very knowledgeable of the industry. He continually put our best interests first, and was very fair and understanding throughout the process. I would recommend him as a realtor to anyone.”
The Nelsons, represented in the lease by Scott Forte of Prudential Verani Realty, plan to open a new restaurant at 409 The Hill called Nibblesworth. Set to open by the end of July, the restaurant will have a mod-traditional flavor and a wood-fire grill, featuring traditional recipes with a modern flair.
The Nelsons plan to renovate and make improvements to the electrical, heating and air conditioning systems to the property as they build Nibblesworth into a destination restaurant for Portsmouth.
