Downtown, Midtown, and all parts east of 72nd.

Faced with declining sales, brother and sister Mike Prescott and Julie Prescott Burgess are trying to secure a future by parceling out the company property and transforming parts into the kind of loft-style residential space that’s increasingly popular in urban cores.
One of three side-by-side Automatic Printing buildings on the south side of Cuming between 17th and 18th Streets will become a home for Burgess and her husband, Steve. They and another Prescott sibling, Jana, will live in that easternmost structure, 1709 Cuming St., after a $1.2 million renovation project.
A future phase proposes that new commercial space be carved out of the middle warehouse, 1711 Cuming St. A baker, coffeehouse or other merchant would sell wares from a street-level storefront while Mike Prescott and his wife, Barb, move to the top floor, which would be converted to another residence with a rooftop deck.
Main printing operations will continue at the largest of the buildings, 1713 Cuming St.
Already a few corners of the overall complex — which dates back a century and spans about 18,000 square feet — are being leased to others. Current tenants are a band of musicians, a spiral bindery business and a sound engineer. Owners say there is room for more.
