City commissioners have agreed to contribute $250,000 towards a $1.093 million renovation project happening at the Bowman Center, located at 501 S. Dixie Frwy in New Smyrna Beach. The scope of work, expected to be completed this summer, will include painting, roof repair & replacement, awnings & canopies, exterior doors & windows, landscaping & irrigation, exterior lighting, decorative exterior facades, and exterior security features.

The property will ultimately serve as a corporate office for Chase Components, LLC, a distributor of board-level electronic components, peripherals, and power supplies. The company plans to hire up to five new positions while offering some of the renovated space for luxury retail shops. 

Purchased by Cristal Clear Properties, LLC last November for $1 million, the site is the latest recipient of an Adaptive Reuse Opportunity grant provided by the city's Community Redevelopment Agency. Established in 2015, the agency's 20-year mission is to revitalize blighted areas including the New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, Historic Westside neighborhood, West Canal Street, former K-Mart plaza at 1724 S.R. 44, portions of North Causeway, and 180 acres of Florida East Coast Railway property.
