Revival of Automotive-based Storefronts Offers Antioch Street New Liveliness

November 28, 2012 by Mike Anderson in Automobile with 0 Comments

An influx of automotive-based shops has greatly assisted to improve trading activities in a corridor that was once struck really hard by vacancies. The exit of various Antioch automotive dealerships present on West tenth Street east of the Automotive Center Drive over the previous decade left automotive components of the region in disorder.

Vacant buildings in the region were left shuttered, fenced by massive chain-link barriers, vulnerable to graffiti and surpassed by wild plants in the parking areas. But, many businesses in the zone have demolished the empty storefronts in the past years, and amongst those businesses the biggest project has been Mike’s Automotive Body located at the corner of tenth, and Auto Center Drive.

Michelle Hatch, the property manager at a close-by well-known apartment known as Crestview Pines Apartments, recently said that it is gradually getting much better, and at present it does appear much nicer. The Vice President of the famous Mike’s Automotive Body, Brennan Rose said that it looks like there is actually more liveliness down here and people are arriving down here to set up their own business. Brennan added that there is certainly a more optimistic attitude at present.

The corridor conventionally was an entry position into the well-known East Contra Costa region. Most of the renowned automotive dealerships, including Al Eames Ford, Antioch Nissan, Mazzei-Pontiac, Cadillac GMC, and Dodge clearly lined the avenue. Over the time, the automotive businesses shifted to new positions with better visibility and accessibility from Highway 4.

Rose utters that the region has always appeared stable and clean; however, things inclined when the nation’s economic growth decelerated during the late 2000s. The well-known Mike’s Auto Body founded its business in the region Antioch back in 2004, modernizing the corner position where Antioch Dodge dealership had been nearly 6-years later. Jim Jakel, the city manager, said that the private asset in the region boasts of a busted window theory effect, wherein flourishing business projects support others to establish in the region, and dishearten blight.

Mike’s Auto Body has sort of jump-started the whole thing, and generated a latest synergy down here. Just before the formation of Mike’s Auto Body, Jim’s Auto Body shifted into the elderly Mazzei automotive dealership. Recently, a Maaco automotive repair store has been started on the Tenth Avenue north side, where Mike’s Auto Body had formerly functioned. In the meantime, Valero resurrected a gas station few years before on the north-west side of Tenth Street and Auto Centre.
