Community Hub, LLC, a Greenville, S.C.-based real estate and development group, is proud to announce the acquisition of Danny Smith’s Fillin & Fixin service station located in the heart of Downtown Simpsonville at 136 S. Main Street. The service station will be transformed into a vibrant community gathering space that will offer a diverse selection of food, beverage, and entertainment options, complete with a stage for live performances. Construction is anticipated to begin in Spring 2024.
“The commitment to revitalization initiatives and continued focus on economic growth in Simpsonville is quite impressive. We have been watching the city’s growth over the years and have unwavering confidence in the diligent work put forth by the City and its leadership,” said Community Hub, LLC Principal and Simpsonville resident David Berger. “We are excited to play a part in the flourishing journey and cultivate a true local community gathering destination that will be sustainable for decades to come.”
Danny Smith’s Fillin & Fixin station holds a cherished history of serving the local community with exceptional auto repair services for 27 years. As a family-owned business, the station became a trusted landmark where residents could rely on skilled mechanics and friendly customer service.
“The old filling station has been good to us the past 27 years, and a lot of our loyal customers have become more like friends and family, and we’re going to miss each of them,” said the Smith family. “The torch has been passed and we couldn’t have hand-picked a better group to continue developing Downtown Simpsonville with a true commitment to excellence. They have an amazing plan to create a space for Simpsonville to gather, connect and dine, and we hope to see a lot of our old customers there.”
Downtown Simpsonville is amid a $15 million dollar revitalization project that includes traffic realignment, streetscape, new street lighting, wider sidewalks, pedestrian-safe crossing, and wayfinding signage – all of which will draw more visitors to its downtown area.
“This development project is exactly what we work towards for a lively downtown,” said Dianna Gracely, City Administrator for the City of Simpsonville. “It’s taking a long-time business and transforming it into a place where our community can gather and welcome visitors, making Simpsonville unique and simply home.”
The general contractor on the project is IHRS Construction Management & General Contractor and the architect is Psi Design.
