Organization Acquires North Augusta ‘Carpet Shop’ Building, Envisions Mixed-use Development
North Augusta Forward (NAF) has purchased the former “carpet shop” property on Georgia Avenue. The building is a historic property that used to house a skating rink.
The property is adjacent to the North Augusta Municipal Building.
“This property has been for sale for several years, and we are excited to finally be able to secure it for appropriate development,” said NAF Chairman Brett Brannon. “This historic property is located immediately adjacent to land already owned by NAF which will allow us to develop the two parcels in a strategically coordinated manner.”
Brannon said NAF has owned the building for around 30 days and wants to hear from potential tenants interested in the space. He thinks the building would thrive as a mixed-use development including restaurants, retail and office space. The building is around 12,000 square feet.
NAF also owns the parcel of land behind the Georgia Avenue building and plans to build a new development of around the same size there, Brannon said.
North Augusta Forward stated in a press release that its “goal has always been to partner with residents, businesses, governments and community organizations to identify, develop and implement visionary initiatives as a catalyst for the continued transformation of North Augusta into an inviting and vibrant community that residents want to call home.”
