Reed’s Project
Reed, whose company owns the Blass warehouse at 315 Main St., said construction on the upper stories of the property should begin soon.

Reed described Porter’s Jazz Cafe as the current tenant, but declined to talk about the status of the business operations there.

Reed’s company is turning the top four stories of the building into 32 loft apartments.
About $275,000 in work to remove asbestos and lead paint from the 1902 building finished in early July, he said.

The five-story building is about 43,000 SF in size. The structure, like those Moses’ team is renovating, was vacant for about 20 years when K Lofts, Reed’s investor group, bought it in 2010.

“I think a lot of people are saying, ‘I’m willing to bet long on Main Street,’” Reed said of the recent redevelopment efforts downtown
