Barber Construction Renovating Old City Jail
Donnie Barber of member business Barber Construction in Hopewell has recently acquired the old Hopewell City Jail and is in the process of renovating the property for commercial use. The concept is to turn the space into something like a showroom for his hometown business with a waiting area, conference room (shared by several businesses), a kitchen, bathrooms, and showers for his employees. On the second floor, he intends to build out several upscale apartments. The exterior yard will be a shop and work area for Barber Construction. The completion date is, as of yet, unknown.
