commercial blank canvas
212 N. Broad street
Looking for a place to start your business downtown, but not looking for a renovation project? This is the property for you! Private investors at Killer Investments purchased this property in 2018 and have already completed demolition, replaced the roof, stabilized the floor, begun buildout of bathrooms (two each, men/women), storage area, and obtained a rendering of how they envision the building once completed. After suffering a setback during Hurricane Michael, they have secured the building and are working in conjunction with their neighbor to the North to secure the shared wall. Once the wall has been secured, renovations can resume. In the meantime, the owners have taken it upon themselves to use the blown-out windows as a canvas for a bit of local color. The investors have planned for a blank slate appropriate for many types of businesses, so it is ready and waiting to be customized to suit your own needs. And at just under 3,000 square feet, there’s plenty of room here!
The “old IGA” building downtown dates back to the late 1800s, when it began life as a tractor dealership. Next door to the Hook & Ladder Firehouse Livery around the turn of the century, you can still see the low, arched windows in the shared wall where horses reached their heads through to access their feed. Later in the 20th century, the location held the downtown IGA grocery store, remnants of which were uncovered during the recent demolition phase of this project. Used as storage and left vacant for many years, this building can be seen from beautiful Willis Park and is just steps away from the soon-to-be Willis Park Hotel and next door to the Proposed Open Air Event Space in the Historic Hook & Ladder building.

Virtually a blank slate for any type of business, this historic commercial building within sight-lines of the town Square is the perfect place to start your business.
