[img_assist|nid=255|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=200|height=153] After contending with loitering, trash, and other negative activities occurring at Tony’s Liquors, Gates BBQ decided to purchase the building at 4541 Paseo and clean up the property. The building has been completely refurbished both inside and out. New heating and air conditioning, lighting, and flooring were installed. The roof was repaired, building painted inside and out, and new windows and doors were added. A new concrete parking lot and landscaping were also added.
Gates BBQ plans to lease the space for office use and expects the property to be rented within the next two months. The Southtown Council applauds the efforts being made by Gates in redeveloping the area and awards them the August Sparkle Award!
