MARIETTA, GA — Construction began in early October on a Wash Barn carwash in a foreclosed building that had been abandoned for some time, the Marietta Daily Journal reported.
The Oct. 3 story stated that new Owner Robbie Stewart hopes the project will take two months to finish. Stewart plans on spending a lot of time and money on landscaping.
Stewart explained in the story that, by polishing up the property nicely, he hopes to attract customers and start a positive chain reaction in other nearby businesses to spruce up their properties.
The Wash Barn is the first in a redevelopment program started by the town to provide tax incentives to business owners who purchase foreclosed properties on Canton Road and develop them.
