    95-103 Market St for $720,000. This includes home of Blue Shamrock, Game Center, Market St. Market which I believe has been owned by Rob Nason for several years. Is that correct?

  2. DickH says:

    Mostly correct, Kathleen. The property was purchased by Nason Property Management LLC back in 2000 for $296,000. However, this does not include the Blue Shamrock. That’s 105 Market Street. It looks like this parcel is just the building that contains Market Street Market and Game Center. The buyer is EJ Properties LLC, the manager of which is John Noto (according to the Secretary of State’s website). John lives in a condo on Market Street, owns a hi-tech business that’s located in Chelmsford, and is one of the founders of Lowell Makes (at 47 Lee Street). He’s someone who has demonstrated a commitment to downtown Lowell. I’m not sure what the plans are for this space and it would be unfortunate if the Market either closes or is not replaced by a comparable supplier of groceries for downtown residents but if the property had to be sold, the city is fortunate that John is involved in the purchase.

    Thank you Kathleen and Dick for the posts regarding our recent purchase of 95-103 Market Street. John Noto and I jointly manage EJ Properties, and currently have no plans for changing this already-attractive building. We look forward to taking good care of the property and being a part of an increasingly dynamic downtown Lowell.
