Galax Plaza Renovation Complete

Elite Builders, Inc. completed the renovation to the main strip center in December of last year! We would like to thank Gary Conley, head contractor overseeing the project for his dedication and attention to detail during the 16-month period to transform the center. We would also like to thank Dayton & Thompson  Associates, PC for assisting with the design plan. Galax Plaza has a refreshing new look that is updated and more inviting to customers! Take a look at some before and after photos of the renovation below.

This year we will be renovating one of our out-parcel buildings that Twin County Wellness Center leases at Galax Plaza. The front exterior of the building will match the renovation design of the main strip center to bring unity to the shopping center.
