WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The old Studebaker car dealership built in the 1920's in Downtown Waco is undergoing renovation.

Until 2009, the McLennan County Appraisal District used the space for offices.

"It was such a unique property when we discovered the bones of it looked like with the ceilings, barreled roof and the rafters that are working through the building. It's just going to be gorgeous," Chad Hanson, a broker with Lake Country Real Estate, said. 

Now the 20,000 square foot building at 6th and Columbus will house a new e-gaming venue and co-working office space. People will be able to rent office space by the hour.

"Everyone is focused on one area of downtown and we really felt the need to come a few blocks away. There's a lot of great buildings here in Columbus and Washington," Hanson said. "And we really want to start to develop a different part of town as well. Just to help Waco and the downtown area continue to grow and we don't have to be all in one area. We can kinda of spread out a little bit."

Nexus Gaming signed a lease for 5,000-square feet. It will provide a space for games to compete against each other in staged competitions. They are set to open in December.

Hanson said they still have about 9,000 to 10,000 square feet available.
