Located in the very heart of downtown Portsmouth next to the historic North Church, this site was originally occupied by a three-story wood-framed building which was destroyed by fire. The lot was purchased in 1997 and construction of the existing four-story structure was completed in 1998. Blending seamlessly with its historic neighbors, and designed to honor and complement the dominance and importance of the North Church, this brick building features steeply pitched roofs, symmetrical dormers, granite details and extensive modern glass. This 17,000 square foot building is currently leased to a restaurant, a retail store and a business. 10 Pleasant received a People’s Choice Award from the Portsmouth Advocates in 1999.
