A new Smoothie King development is coming in early 2016 to the east side of Highway 190 in Covington! The 24,200-square-foot site just north of 14th Avenue and next door to Tropic Express Car Wash has been recently demolished of all previous improvements which have been home to Ferris Commercial Mowers Lawn & Saw Shop for many years. Dirt work for the proposed 1,200-square-foot standalone building has already begun. The free standing building will feature a drive-thru window, 16 parking spots, and an interior retail/sales area. Mr. Frank Nuccio with F & C Blending, LLC recently closed on the property for $700,000. The remaining improvements were demolished and the sales price equates to $28.93 per square foot. Demolition costs were minimal. This land sale is now the highest value indicator to date for the heavily traveled thoroughfare.
