UPDATE: Click HERE to see a great blog post about the origins of the building, by Old Florida.
According to employees of Uniform City (Facebook | Website), they will be moving into the former Tire Kingdom building before the end of the year. The site is located at 2001 E. Colonial Drive [Gmap].
The Tire Kingdom space has been vacant for a number of years. The owner of the space has previously stated that he was not interested in selling for anything under $2.2M and preferred to find a tenant to lease the building from him. We featured the building HERE in a previous I Wish This Was column.
The demolition process has already started with the old untempered glass being removed from the front showroom, and a number of walls taken out as well.
We’ve attached the photographs of the plans that have been submitted to the City, below. The plans had not been scanned by the Permitting Department at the time of this post. From what we can see, the back part of the building will be retail, and the front will be offices.
