Katapult Properties successfully coordinates the transaction for one of downtown Fairhope’s iconic gathering places, Windmill Market
FAIRHOPE, AL – April 20, 2018. Windmill Market in downtown Fairhope has officially sold to new owners as of Thursday, April 12. In their decision to release proprietorship of the market, former owners Mac and Gina Walcott sought out Jeremy Friedman, Broker of Katapult Properties, to facilitate the sale of this special property. The Walcott’s and Friedman’s relationship spans all the way back to when Windmill Market was first built in 2009. At that time, the Walcotts hired Friedman’s construction company to build Windmill Market for their family. Now, nine years later, Friedman is helping the property evolve again, thanks to his history and familiarity with the market.
Originally the site for Klumpp Motors’ Chevrolet dealership in the 60’s and 70’s, the property now known as Windmill Market was purchased in 2008 by architects Mac & Gina Walcott. Their desire was to bring the abandoned building back to life as an emblem of sustainability in the community. Friedman’s construction company was the obvious selection as they specialized in eco-friendly building techniques. Once built, Windmill Market opened in October 2009 as a place for local commerce, beginning as an open-air market.
Over the past eight and a half years, Mac and Gina Walcott have advanced Windmill Market’s business with the addition of restaurant tenants, such as Mary Ann’s Deli and the most recent addition: Ox Kitchen. It has also become a gathering place where resident artists and musicians can sell their products and entertain their town. Mac Walcott said, “We have enjoyed helping develop Windmill Market from a former auto dealership location to an open-air market to what it is now. We are excited to see this property evolve even further through new ownership.” Read More.Previous  Next »
