Ten months ago local real estate developers Liz Hitchcock and Amy Chhom quietly announced a plan to buy and redevelop the old Cohas shoe factory at 252 Willow Street in Manchester.
The concept was simple. Renovate the old building and reinvent its purpose.
Chhom says “We walked into the building together and asked ‘what if’?”
It was a very good question.
What if they could do something different? What if they could do something that married the ideas of art, community, and business to honor the city’s roots and build something unique for the future?
