The Briarwood Group, also known as Martin Heines Real Estate, is planning to build five lofts on the top floor of this building as part of a renovation plan. The location is 308 S. Broadway Ave. between Front Street and Elm Street in Tyler.

A real estate company has received the green light to build five loft apartments on their property in downtown Tyler.

The Briarwood Group, also known as Martin Heines Real Estate, received a permit Tuesday for the multifamily development.

The company is seeking to renovate the 6,500-square-foot top floor at 308 S. Broadway Ave., between Front Street and Elm Street, according to the permit.

Mayor Martin Heines said in an email his company is remodeling the whole three-story, 17,000-square-foot building for multiuse occupancy. The first and second floors will have flexible spaces for retail and office use, he said.

“As (with) our redevelopments across Broadway, these spaces will be an interesting combination of original construction with new amenities,” he said.

The city of Tyler issued the permit for the five loft apartments as a commercial shell. A project value and tenant name has not been released.

A previous permit issued May 3 for interior remodeling was valued at $475,000.
