Redevelopment and Sale of JJ Nissen Complex

JJ Nissen Complex

Jensen Baird Gardner & Henry congratulates Art and Andréa Girard and their family on the completion of the successful multi-year redevelopment and leasing of the landmark 138,000 square foot former JJ Nissen Bakery building located on Munjoy Hill in Portland. The project culminated this spring in its submission to the Maine Condominium Act and the closing of sales to new owners. Lawrence Clough of the firm’s Real Estate Practice Group served as counsel throughout the entire process, including the structure of the developers’ $1 million donation to the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland for its 25,000-square-foot expansion so as to maximize the donors’ income tax benefits.
