WATERVILLE — A Massachusetts man who has traveled to Waterville for 15 years as part of his Boston business says he hopes to transform the former Ken-A-Set building downtown into a microbrewery, sports bar and restaurant on the first floor and a nightclub on the second floor.
Mark McLeod, 49, of Wilmington, Massachusetts, owner of Boston Eye Design, bought the building at 1 College Ave. several weeks ago and is looking for a partner on the project. The two-story brick building, which is next to the Central Fire Station, has been empty for more than a year.
“I hope to find a partner who is already operating a microbrewery and looking to expand,” McLeod said Wednesday in a phone interview. “With the town doing all the renovation with Colby College, I think it’s an ideal time and an ideal place to make this happen. I think the time has come for Waterville to be revamped. Hopefully, I can be part of it.’
