Ad agency vacates Jackson Ward space

The Adams Street space won't sit vacant for long.

The Adams Street space won’t sit vacant for long.

After nearly three years in Jackson Ward, a local advertising agency has cleared out of its space at the convergence of Adams Street and Brook Road.

A for Adventure has vacated its 600-square-foot space at 308 N. Adams St., beside Idle Hands Bread Co. and across from Max’s on Broad and the Maggie L. Walker memorial plaza. The 4-year-old firm had occupied the space since October 2014.

Owner Jonathan Goldberg, a former Martin Agency designer who started A for Adventure in his attic before moving to Jackson Ward, said the agency is continuing, just not with a downtown office.

In an email, Goldberg said: “While we loved our space in Jackson Ward, A for Adventure has transitioned into a co-working/home office footing that allows us to more easily respond to and service the primarily out-of-town clients and assignments we’ve been getting.”

Goldberg did not respond to questions about what prompted the move or how it may affect his business and staff. The agency had a staff of five when it moved to the space, which previously housed laser design shop Big Secret before it moved to a bigger space up the street.

Ann Schweitzer Riley with One South Commercial, who’s handling leasing for the Adams Street space, said another office user is lined up to fill it. She said a lease for that tenant has not yet been finalized.

Around the corner, Riley said a lease has been signed for a 750-square-foot retail space at 102 W. Broad St. Sisters Anna Thompson and Kate Thompson Feucht are setting up the space as a design studio for their Palindrome Creative Co. and Betty Clicker Photography businesses.

That space is between children’s clothing retailer Little Nomad, which moved to the neighborhood after signing its lease in May, and a vacant corner space that previously housed a Jackson Hewitt location. Riley said a retail tenant is lined up for that space but a lease has yet to be signed.

The crossroads of Adams, Brook and Broad continues to see movement in its retail lineup. Civilization Tattoo opened earlier this month at 319 N. Adams St. Rider Boot Co. opened around the corner in November.
