Huntington Officials Announce New Development


Huntington City officials joined with local developers Thursday to announce a new downtown development.

Huntington Mayor Steve Williams announced that local development group Capital Venture Corporation has purchased a building along Third Avenue and is in the process of finishing the purchase of three remaining buildings next to it.

One of the buildings will be torn down and the other three will be renovated, making room for condos and businesses on the upper floors, and restaurants and markets on the lower floors.

Williams said it’s part of a continued development of the downtown area. 

“It’s another indication of the level of confidence that downtown has. Anyone that’s come into downtown knows the area has been revitalized,” Williams said.

A walk-thru will be developed at the site of the torn down building that connects the Third Avenue shopping area to a parking lot on Fourth Avenue and other businesses. Construction and renovation has begun and will be on-going for the next couple of years.
