New Canton Restaurant & Retail Center Coming!

Breaking News from Bill Grant, Councilman- Ward II, Georgia, Canton, Non-Partisan Position and President and Chief Executive Officer at Grant Design. 

From Bill Grant’s Facebook page.

The City of Canton has SOLD the Canton Elementary School and Mill Office buildings to Harris Diversified for a MIXED-USE development! The deal requires the historic buildings’ exteriors to remain intact and downtown will have 125 NEW PARKING SPACES for public use! The development will feature new Canton Forwardrestaurants and retail shops initially with other uses to be added in the near future. This mixed-use development will be a GAME CHANGER for our downtown, and it will attract hundreds of new customers for our existing merchants and restaurants. When the land swap with CCSD was announced a few months ago, many were skeptical, at best, but this project exemplifies the economic growth potential we have in Canton. And yes, this development will attract new customers for ALL of Canton’s businesses! So here’s what was generated by the land swap: historic preservation, new economic growth, new tax revenues, MORE parking, more RESTAURANTS and increased interest in quality development. This is a HUGE win for our great city, and just what we needed to move ‪#‎CantonForward‬! Thanks to everyone who trusted the Mayor, Council and DDA to make the RIGHT decisions on this property. Your support is greatly appreciated!
