Tenants in the property include Campus Customs apparel and gifts, Broadway Kitchen restaurant, Blue Jay Cleaners, Blue Mercury cosmetics chain, Broadway Salon, One Good for Another Consignment and four newly constructed one-bedroom apartments. 

The complex included 7,300 square feet of vacant office/flex space that had been the longtime headquarters for an architectural firm for 30 years.

Yale Mall Partnership took ownership of the properties in 2003. The buildings date back to the early 1900s and are part of the “Shops at Yale,” which includes the Apple Store and Urban Outfitters. The buildings have a total appraised value of $4.5 million, according to city property records.
