Floyds Knob, Ind. – RE/MAX franchise owner and broker Linda Finney will begin construction of a two-story, 8,222-square-foot, $1.4 million building at 300 LaFollette Station Drive South in Floyds Knobs, Ind.
Currently RE/MAX Advantage has 26 agents at their current location. The expansion will allow RE/MAX Advantage to host a training area for new agents, as well as include leasable space for the offices of professional services companies. “We are a real estate brokerage firm and our new building site is on a very visible, high traffic area. Therefore, the building will have a presence that will stand out and demonstrate our pride in our community and our commitment to the citizens of Southern Indiana,” Finney said.
In an effort to support the expansion project, the Floyd County Commissioners are considering an application from RE/MAX Advantage for a forgivable loan through the Floyd County Revolving Loan Program to help offset the cost of construction. The Floyd County Redevelopment Commission has been very supportive and responsive throughout the process in order to ensure that the construction not only will meet the needs of RE/MAX Advantage, but also will conform to the Highlander Point Gateway Overlay District Plan, completed by the office of the Floyd County planner, in conjunction with the University of Louisville’s School of Urban and Public Affairs.
“We are very proud that RE/MAX Advantage has chosen the Highlander Point location for its new building. RE/MAX Advantage is a perfect example of the kind of business we want to retain in Floyd County, and we were happy to assist them through this process,” said Bob Woosley, president of the Floyd County Redevelopment Commission. “It (RE/MAX Advantage) is an outstanding organization that has shown their commitment to Southern Indiana and Floyd County. We are extremely pleased to be a part of their continued growth and look forward to having them remain in Floyd County.”
Wendy Dant Chesser, president and CEO of 1si, commented, “We are proud to count Floyd County as a partner in economic development and are thrilled that RE/MAX Advantage will be expanding its business. We look forward to celebrating the completion of the new building and the success that is sure to follow.”
Construction on the new building should be completed by the end of the year.
