Flourishing Southside Gets 3 New Projects

Monday, November 8, 2010

The Planning Commission on Monday approved three new projects for the flourishing Southside.

Timothy McDonald said 12 antique dealers from the former Southside Galleries plan to open soon in a building he bought at auction at 607 E. Main.

He said the property at Main and Park Street includes a 6,000-square-foot building that was formerly used by a carpet supply firm as well as a 1,500-square-foot building in the rear.

Other tenants include Atlas Bolt and the Deep Roots landscaping firm.

The developer said Virginia Cofer may set up a Silver Jalapeno restaurant at the front of the building.

Mr. McDonald said, "This was the ugliest building on Main Street." But he said it got a new facade with the help of Greenscapes and the Lyndhurst Foundation.

Also, John Duckett said he is ready to build eight two-story townhouses on Rossville Avenue near Washington Street.

He said each will have two garages.

Mr. Duckett said a warehouse at the site could eventually be used for retail. It is now being used as a construction staging area.

A third project by Mill Direct International at 1200 Rossville Ave. will be a new recycling center.

It will handle metals, plastics and electronics.

Operating hours will be 8 a.m-6 p.m.
