The building, owned by Ifran Maqsood, was built in 1924. It was most recently occupied by Doc’s Tattoo & Piercing.
Prior to that it was home to a Redd’s Snapper Seafoods restaurant. Real estate developer Kalan Haywood purchased the last remaining location, 6016 W. Lisbon Ave., in 2018 and rebranded it as Red Snapper Fish Company.
The 4,230-square-foot building is home to one commercial unit and one residential unit.
