Come this spring, one corner in the heart of New Concord, will have a brand new look, once The Community Commons is completed.
Lepi Enterprises, the contractor for the project, first broke ground in April of 2012, to build The Community Bank, which has been opened since last October. The second part of the project, is constructing an 8 store strip mall, with 8 condo's on the second floor. Both the retail space and the condominiums are in a prime New Concord location, will be energy efficient and have the similar brick and stone look as The Community Bank.
Site Foreman, Scott Lepi says, thus far, a large part of the exterior is complete and the second floor will be added soon. On Monday, the workers were putting in a new alley, that will be the main entrance for the apartments. That part of the job required hauling in a large amount of fill. Lepi says he thinks the village is excited for the new addition that will dress up main street. If you are interested in renting one of the two bedroom condo's or a retail space, call Lepi and Associates at 740-891-1068.
