In 2004 and 2006, four connected historic buildings on Lisbon Street suffered extensive fire damage and were condemned and demolished, leaving a gaping hole in Lewiston’s most iconic street. One of the buildings was the site of the 1906 art studio of Marsden Hartley, a noted early modern American painter born and raised in Lewiston.
The Hartley Block is The Szanton Company’s answer to this 175’ x 100’ empty lot. A mixed-use, mixed-income project, it features 63 apartments aimed at a diversity of income groups and 4,000 sq. ft. of retail space along Lisbon Street. The project features a fitness center, community room, children’s playroom, dedicated bike storage room, wi-fi and covered parking directly behind the building. Amenities within easy walking distance include the public library (across the street), shops, restaurants, cafes, and two major parks.
This project adds momentum to downtown Lewiston’s resurgence, including street-level public art at the entrance. Two 9-foot mosaic tile works, after Marsden Hartley paintings, animate its facade.
