We've just been forwarded an announcement that two new businesses will open this weekend in the John R Row building. The 4,000 square foot commercial space is also getting two more businesses in July. By the time they're done renovating the building will house a burger joint, a barber shop, an ice cream shop, and a construction company. It's not the most thrilling list, but what we are pretty excited about is that new facade and the planted space out front. Way to go from fugly to to fab. The building design is by Steven Harris.
