A building off Stillwater Avenue that housed a vitamin supplement store, medical marijuana dispensary and a vegan cafe that had opened there less than six months ago has been demolished after its sale to a new owner.

The 109 Bangor Mall Boulevard building, which is located in the same development as Hannaford’s location on Stillwater Avenue, was sold last month to the Portland firm Exchange Street Partners, according to records from the Bangor code enforcement office.

Drew Sigfridson, one of the firm’s co-owners, said the building was in poor condition.

Exchange Street Partners plans to construct a new building on the 3-acre lot and start marketing to new tenants.

The company hopes to find one or more businesses that fit “in synergistic use” with next-door neighbor Hannaford, which has been a long-time anchor tenant, he said.

Exchange Street Partners also owns the Hannaford building.

The firm contracted with Carmel-based Sitewerx to start demolishing the building last week. As of Monday afternoon, it was almost entirely gone.

The building once was home to the Bangor location of Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse.

It had most recently housed Little Gem Cafe, Vibes Cannabis Co. and Mainely Supplements.

Little Gem opened its location there in October, and had been sub-leasing from Vibes Cannabis, owner Ryan Ross said.

The building’s roof leaked and Vibes’ heat was interrupted for a week once, Ross said.

A voicemail message at the cafe’s phone number said the business was in the process of finding another location. The business said in a Facebook post that Feb. 19 was its last day at its original location.

Mainely Supplements and Vibes Cannabis Co. opened in another shared location on Hogan Road on Feb. 21, Ross said.

Correction: An earlier version of this article contained a prior name for Vibes Cannabis Co.
