This is terrific news! It is such a sweet little spot. Sounds like Bob Chapman is getting pitched some great ideas. I can't wait to see what happens with it. Thanks for the follow-up, Gary!

That is fantastic news. I took some amateur photos there last year and have been worried for years that it would be torn down and replaced with something lifeless.
What does he plan to do with it? My husband and I always thought it would make a fantastic coffee shop. You could open the garage doors on nice days and people could sit in the open air and sip coffee. -Abby
Saw 2 guys working on the building today. Scraping the old paint and fixing rotten trim. I have wanted to renovate this building for years now!~! Glad its finally happening!
