The Milton City Council on Tuesday approved a $10,000 commercial façade grant for Stockman Property Development to renovate the building exterior at 644 College St.
The estimated cost for the project, which includes new windows and exterior lighting, is $23,400, according to the grant application.
The 2,500-square-foot commercial building has one apartment on the upper level and was purchased by Stockman Property Development in October 2020. The store front property previously served as grocery store, an antique store, salon and training studio among other businesses. Bare Beauty, offering waxing and other beauty services, opened on the lower level in March.
City of Milton administrator Al Hulick said Eric Stockman of Stockman Property Development intends to redo the façade in context to previous façade. A historical picture was provided with the grant application.
A site plan, required in B-3 zoning, has been approved by the plan commission.
Stockman Property Development this year purchased the adjacent former American Awards building at 648 and 650 College St. (one parcel). The building is about 4,000 square feet and has two apartments upstairs. Stockman said facades for all three addresses will be done at the same time.
According to the grant application for 644 College St., the proposed completion date for the project is May 24.
