Senoia is ready for it’s close-up, just in time for its annual Memorial Day festival. The final touches were put on Barnes Street this week, and visitors who haven’t been to Senoia in a while, will notice how the downtown continues to grow.
Senoia has grown significantly over the last decade. Key to that growth has been Senoia Enterprises, a local development company focused on adding value to Senoia’s downtown district while preserving the historic architecture and small-town feel treasured by residents and visitors alike.
The company, which added two buildings and several small businesses from 2007 to 2010, is now completing their latest addition on Main Street, called the Barnes St. Market, which introduces a dozen new shops, a fine dining restaurant, and several loft apartments.
“We’re very pleased with this new development,” says Senoia Enterprises partner Scott Tigchelaar. “We’re already fully leased in the retail space and the new businesses are going to be a fine complement to Senoia’s downtown.”
In addition to retail and dining, the new development will feature 10 one-bedroom loft apartments, offering a rare opportunity to live right downtown.
“We’ve worked hard to combine a historic sense of place and small-town charm with the kinds of destination shops and restaurants people love. I can’t count the number of visitors who’ve told us Senoia reminds them of the small town they grew up in. That’s really something special.”
