Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: A humble surf shop owner.
Why the Owner Chose Wilmington: I opened my Surf and Skate boutique (Momentum) in this building in 2008. The owner of the building also owns several other buildings downtown and took to my wife and I after being good tenants. They had lived in the unit we rent when they first moved to Wilmington. This was the first building he bought and he sold it to my wife and I in 2011 for an amazing deal. We promised to continue to make downtown a better place and not flip the building on the short term.
We originally had our surfboard gallery upstairs when we took possession of the building. If you google Momentum Surf Shop Wilmington, there is a pic of the Surfboard gallery as it looked in 2009.
We converted it back into an apartment in 2010 and started renting nightly. We have the best repeat guests!!!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We are in the middle of the hustle and bustle. If you really want to experience downtown Wilmington, be our guest! Open the windows in the Spring and Fall and let the air in!
