The city council recently approved a deal that will allow Financial Concepts to acquire the old Gilmer Inn property on Main Street for a sum of $270,000. FC’s CEO Scott Ferguson remarked that, “As we’ve grown, we realized that we needed a bigger space. We wanted to stay in that downtown area and we looked. We think we’ve got an exciting project to not only move our office and build a new space but also have some other elements to it as well.” He also referred to the property, which used to hold the Inn until its demolition in 2015, as “a fantastic property right in the heart of downtown.”
Ferguson says that they plan to break ground later this year, and anticipate new construction to finish up in about 12 to 15 months.
