New Future for Old Preston Avenue Coca-Cola Building

Posted: Updated:

There's new life for the old Coca-Cola bottling plant on Preston Avenue in Charlottesville. A project that will restore the building's historic appearance and redesign its interior space is now well underway.

Dr. Martin Chapman of Indoor Biotechnologies Inc. said, "The building inside is just ripe for renovation. It's very flat, very open. So it should be space that's easy to renovate, we don't have to move a lot around things or move things out of place."

Indoor Biotechnologies Inc. bought the building last year for $2.5 million. It expects to spend between $6 million and $7 million to restore the exterior and renovate the interior. Plans are in place to install historically accurate windows on the front of the building early next week.

 The company hopes to move into the new space as early as summer 2013.
