Local investor buys historic Broad Street building

An iconic downtown building with a musical past has been sold to a local real estate investor.

Tyson Schuetze, the owner of Auben Realty, LLC, recently bought 822 Broad St., the former home of Pyramid Music. Schuetze said the purchase is part of his personal investment portfolio and separate from Auben.

“We want to renovate the downstairs as a blank canvas for a business to move into,” he said. “We’re going to make it a clean, functional space.”

Schuetze said the first floor has about 3,000 square feet of space. He plans to focus on updating the building’s plumbing and HVAC systems.

“We want to keep as much of the historic detail as possible,” Schuetze said.

Former DJ and James Brown manager, Robert “Flash” Gordon opened Pyramid on Broad Street in 1976 and a second location on Gordon Highway a few years later. Gordon passed away last year.

Schuetze hopes to begin renovations within the next 90 days, but he’s not sure when they’ll be complete.

“Post-Covid material supply has been a little sketchy,” Schuetze said.

Meybohm Commercial Real Estate handled the sale of the building.
