The Mann Lofts occupy what was once the original, three-story Blass Department Store that was built in 1871. Renovation of the building along with a seven-story addition and parking deck completes a three-part, half-block re-development project located along historic Main Street in downtown Little Rock.
The building has been converted into 19 luxury apartments with an outdoor courtyard for residents to gather and socialize with one another. Located at the ground level are various street-facing retail spaces. The re-development of the Main Street area was made possible due to New Market Tax Credits awarded by the Heartland Renaissance Fund of Little Rock.
Once an abandoned, run-down area, the revitalization of Main Street continues revival with the Mann Lofts being a catalyst for the growth.
