The Pet Shop
The Pet Shop (212 Brownsville Road) has turned from a single project to a redevelopment initiative. The Pet Shop came to fruition because the Commercial District Manager required a more permanent presence in the Hilltop. The Pet Shop is an interesting building with a ton of potential. The project turned into an initiative when it was decided to rehab the space and “vanilla box” it with a plain interior with the intention that if a business would come along, they could take over the space and we would turn around and do the same thing in another space. It is an effective way to jump start redevelopment in our community.
The funds for this project were leveraged by the Mt. Oliver and Knoxville Neighborhood Partnership Program.
