Tonney Insley, Advisor with SVN Miller Commercial Real Estate has sold yet another Downtown Salisbury Property with the latest closing of 146 W. Main Street. Tonney represented both sides of this transaction with oversight from Allison Conick from SVN and John Custis handling the settlement and other legal matters pertaining to the deal.

The property has been home to Market Street Books since 1993 and has apartments on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Betsy Henry owned the property with her husband Keith and operated Market Street Books in Downtown all these years. As she noted on the business Facebook page, “I will miss my ringside seat to the downtown revival. But most of all I will miss you, my customers, who shared your interests and your stories and sometimes your lives with me. “

Of his time as a downtown owner and his experience selling his property, Keith Henry said “Playing a small part in the downtown community has been rewarding. Tonney’s efforts to transition the building to a new owner and purpose made the process flawless.”

The property neighbors the proposed site of a walking bridge to cross the river to Mill Street. City of Salisbury is hoping to “bridge” West Downtown and East Downtown. The new owner of 146 W. Market has not yet solidified plans for the property but hopes to incorporate a use that takes advantage of the potential bridge traffic, and the City garden that is expected to open along the river just behind the building.
