Cedar West was Beacon’s first venture into the West Morehead corridor. It required two acquisitions of the building and an adjacent parking lot, which was owned by two separate owners. After a two-year process of working with both owners, Beacon successfully closed on Cedar West. Since acquiring this building, Beacon has updated the lobby and common spaces, made several capital improvements, and the most exciting change was a large mural in the lobby paying tribute to the building’s nearly 100-year history.
Cedar West is a five-story, history-rich brick office building that once served as a bakery for the legendary A&P grocery store chain. Known as Cedar West because of its location at the corner of Cedar and Westmere Avenue, the facility also once housed bacon, eggs, and other produce destined to fill shoppers' carts at area locations of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. (A&P). The building was later owned by and served as a warehouse for hard-to-find auto parts and supplies during the 1980s and 1990s. The property was converted to an office building in 2000.
