LEWISTON —There are plans afoot for more retail on Lisbon Street.

Three Portland buyers have bought three buildings, 152-168 Lisbon St., with plans to change the combined 38,000 square feet, historically only office space, to add residential and retail use, too, according to Craig Church of KW Commercial/Magnusson Balfour Commercial and Business Brokers.

Chris Paszyc and Joseph Italiaander of The Boulos Co. worked with the seller on the deal and Church with the buyer, EAT Holdings at Lisbon Street, made up of Adam Cope, Eli Small and Tom Jordan.

Church said the current office tenant, formerly known as FISC Solutions and more recently as Deluxe Corp., will be out by Aug. 31 and changes will begin then.

“After 30 years of the buildings being under one use, they are looking forward to bringing new vitality and activity to the block that best serves the needs of the community,” Church said Thursday. “The partners are considering ways to open the buildings to the public as soon as possible with their sights set on an open house in mid-September.”
