The former Something Different Auction House gets a Carter-inspired makeover.


On October 1, 2011, something different happened.

There’s still more, because on the 1st, NABC will be selling progressive pints at a first-time, community-oriented pig roast (with burgers and hot dogs) at Dan Coffey’s Something Different II Auction House, beginning when the (Harvest Homecoming) parade ends, approximately 2:00 p.m. It is located by the levee at 33 E. 3rd Street, just a couple blocks away from Bank Street Brewhouse, and all are invited.

Here’s how it looked in 2011.

I didn’t realize until yesterday that Carter Management Company purchased the building, then completely gutted it, and has commenced the rebuild. It is believed a tenant is in line.

Maybe some day we’ll have a walkable street grid to add value to investments like this, and not lower it.
