Mudgie’s building in Corktown sells; deli to remain open
The building housing the popular Mudgie’s Deli & Wine Shop in Detroit’s Corktown sold Thursday, along with an adjacent apartment property and parking lot.
Mudgie’s, owned and operated by Greg Mudge at 1300 Porter St., will remain open on a long-term lease.
The properties were sold to a joint venture between Birmingham-based Lutz Real Estate Investments and New York City-based Gould Investors LP, according to a news release from Lutz.
The sale price was $813,000, according to Bill Swanson of Detroit-based O’Connor Real Estate. The properties had been listed for sale for $850,000.
“We responded immediately when we were presented the opportunity to purchase properties with a long-term tenant anchoring an iconic building located in an expanding area like Corktown,” Jon Epstein, an associate with Lutz, said in a statement.
Kyle Shenfield of Gould said the company is looking to “build a large portfolio in Detroit.”
The properties were built in 1912 and contain a total of 6,200 square feet, according to the listing.
According to Eater Detroit, Mary Jane McNally, who had been the building’s owner, died in late 2015 and her family was selling the building.
