The Moss-DeGraff Buildings are coming, and we are looking for a buyer!

The proposed project will take place on the 9th block of Main Street in Joplin, MO. The addresses are: 906 Main Street, 912 Main Street, and 914 Main Street.

To our knowledge, the property was the Rains Brothers Building, which was constructed in 1902. It housed Miner’s Hardware Company (906-908 Main Street).

Rains Brothers Building, also known as Miner’s Hardware Company and Roosevelt Hotel, was a historic commercial building located at Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri. It was built in 1900–1901, and was a three-story, three bay, two-part commercial building with Renaissance Revival style detailing. It was destroyed by fire on March 1, 2012.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. It was located in the Main and Eighth Streets Historic District.

With the new construction, we plan to build two buildings with a large courtyard in between.

New construction hasn’t hit downtown Joplin in several decades, and the excitement is beyond credited.

Possible options for a buyer could include, but are not limited to:

New commercial spaces for working tenants. The increase in client traffic will bring much new and exciting professional energy to downtown, as well as increase the job market.

New residential lofts/apartments. This would add new additions to the commerce of restaurants, bars, nightlife, social events, and shops. This will benefit everyone who works, lives, and travels to downtown Joplin.

The City of Joplin has already approved plans for both buildings, as well as the courtyard, and added parking lot.

We are looking for a buyer for the second building. If you might be interested, please fill out the form on this page for more details. Thanks for your interest!
