I’ll tell you one thing; the furniture was worth waiting for! The Renovation at 132 S.W. Main is one of the most important marketing tools you could ask for when showing prospective business entrepreneurs what is possible with a Rocky Mount commercial building. (On Far Left) Milan Mehta, architect, has another successful project in Rocky Mount to add to his credentials and we get a gem.
Kevin Harris, Downtown Development Manager welcomes everyone to the opening of the new offices for the Development Team. Rightfully proud, Mr. Harris, after his welcoming remarks, led those attending the ribbon cutting through the doors into the new space, made large by the design. Ward 2,Councilman, Rueben Blackwell, participated in the celebration while greeting everyone as the new chapter of ‘selling’ Rocky Mount begins. Beside this new setting, there must be an attitude. “What can we do to help you make this happen?”
I’m sorry these I-phone photos don’t do the restoration justice but at least you have an idea of how this narrow from front to back space has been designed. The entire space is welcoming, tasteful, and ready for business. Standing with others out on the sidewalk, the energy and excitement over the outcome is continuing on down the street. The building next door is another Milan Mehta project about to start. (gray/purple) The wonderful 142 Main Street address will be underway as well.
