Progress seen at Nolan Block in downtown Auburn

Progress is happening at the Nolan Block in Auburn.

It’s one of the city’s most-identifiable building runs, and its developer is looking to keep momentum rolling forward.

There are three open storefronts, ranging from 630 to 1,340 square feet. Octane Social House is developer Grant Kyle’s only tenant in the space now.

But he hopes that changes soon. The buildings are old, and come with challenges, but stakeholders and Kyle himself agree that there’s an endless amount of potential in the spaces.

Check out this in-dpeth feature from The Auburn Citizen on the block, and what’s coming for it.
