S.E. Cline Construction has been contracted to remove all building materials and return the parcel to its pre-construction condition.
Palm Coast, FL – February 4, 2014 – The Discount Tire Store under construction on SR 100 next to Panera Bread will not be completed. The real estate department of the tire retailer has reportedly decided to not go forward with a store at that site. S.E. Cline Construction has been hired to remove any building materials and restore the parcel to its pre-construction condition. The sudden change in plans caught many by surprise.
A building permit for the 7,611 square foot store was issued October 23, 2013 with a stated value of $950,000. Construction was suspended around Christmas time. The permit has been cancelled. The parcel was purchased by Halle Properties LLC, of Scottsdale , AZ, in December 2012 for $825,000.
A proposal to build a Discount Tire store on the present location of Zaxby's and Carrabba's was approved by the Planning & Land Development Regulation Board (PLDRB) in 2008, but that approval was overturned by the City Council at that time. GoToby.com understands that the current decision was not related to any past or current actions by the City of Palm Coast.
