Mangano Company


VISALIA — Buildings that served downtown as stores, storage, and a hotel for more than 30 years have come down following a ceremonial demolition in April.
The block is being rebuilt as Mangano Company’s Main Street Promenade, a project that will change the face of downtown Visalia.
The existing buildings are of various vintages and have been used for storage, and general merchandise sales over the last 20 to 30 years. The last known occupancy of the ground floor of the hotel structure was a liquor store, which was gutted by fire in the 1990s. The last known occupancy of the second floor of the hotel was in the late 1960s, more than 40 years ago.
Built in four phases, Main Street Promenade will include 60,000 square feet of mixed-use space including retail, office and restaurants.
Already, the project has several tenants committed to leasing space at the Promenade.
“As an owner and builder of this project, we couldn’t be happier with the response and interest we’ve received,” said Craig Mangano, president of Mangano Company.
Main Street Promenade, LLC, is a collaboration of several local builder/developers, including brothers Craig and Andy Mangano, Bob Dowds and Stephen Peck. Mangano Company Inc. is a family business that has been developing quality retail, commercial and residential projects throughout California for the past 40 years.
The project will be an extension of the downtown fabric with typical downtown Main Street pedestrian features such as mid-block pedestrian crossing, corner bulbouts, and outdoor dining and seating.
The ground floor is expected to be a mix of retail and office space ranging in suite sizes from approximately 900 square feet to over 5,000 square feet. Second and third floors are designed to accommodate similar sized suites. Other amenities include reserved on- and off-site parking lots.
The Main Street Promenade is another project where the principals’ vision, attention to detail, commitment to quality, and value will result in another innovative and precedent-setting project for the community.
