Mixed-use building taking shape downtown

By Matthew Bunk

FAIRFIELD - For motorists who frequently drive on North Texas Street, it's pretty hard to miss seeing the Pearltheo Building going up near the bend in the road that curves into downtown. The two-story frame is taking shape on a highly visible stretch of commercial property that straddles one of the busiest streets in Fairfield. The building's purpose is two-fold, as an office studio and an apartment hub.

In addition to the 530-square-foot office space on the bottom floor, the building will be split into three two-bedroom apartment units of about 800 square feet each. Although city plans don't show what type of business might move into the office, they give a layout of three high-end apartments. Each of them will be equipped with a gas fireplace, a patio, a garage space and a utility room for a washer and dryer. One upstairs apartment is a little bit larger than the others and will include a walk-in closet off the master bedroom.

The driveway and parking spaces will be accessible from Taft Street. A fence will border the rear of the property.Plans were first submitted in 2003, but after several revisions construction began earlier this year.
