Showcase Paducah is an opportunity to tour commercial and residential properties that are for sale or for lease in downtown and LowerTown.
The open house format allows anyone to tour the properties and ask questions of the real estate agent or property representative. Nearly two dozen properties will be open to the public to tour.
There is no charge to participate.
Downtown Development Specialist-Main Street Director Melinda Winchester will be available to provide maps and answer questions about financial incentives and tax credits. She’ll be staged in a tent next to the gazebo at 2nd and Broadway. Winchester says, “Many people have dreamed of opening their own business, expanding to a new location, or owning property in Paducah’s historic district. Showcase Paducah allows those interested in downtown or LowerTown the opportunity to see several properties at their leisure. It’s a true way to experience Paducah.”
Winchester adds, “Since Paducah received the UNESCO Creative City Designation as a City of Crafts & Folk Art, the excitement has been growing to find new ways to showcase this area. Our Paducah Main Street areas are destinations with a diverse arrangement of restaurants, specialty shops, antique stores, professional offices, art galleries and studios, and cultural venues. The historic architecture and creative atmosphere make downtown and LowerTown enjoyable locations not only to visit but also to build a future.”
Additional properties may be added to the list prior to the Showcase Paducah date.
In addition to Showcase Paducah, which focuses on available properties, many existing businesses will have grand opening celebrations, refreshments, door prizes and performances.
