Major construction and business renovations will be breathing new life into another corner of the City of Taylor, this time at the Taylor Commons Shopping Center, where the old Dunham’s and Taco Bell sites are being totally refurbished.
The old Dunham’s location at 21520 Ecorse Road behind Applebee’s is scheduled to become the new home of Measurement Incorporated. The corporation plans on investing $350,000 on interior renovations for the 300-plus-job site. Taco Bell, meanwhile, is undergoing a complete tear down and rebuild at its location at 21700 Ecorse Road.
The Measurement Incorporated location is scheduled to open in mid-February 2017.
Measurement Incorporated and the new Taco Bell location will breathe new life into the Taylor Commons Shopping Center, which houses a Dollar Tree and Secretary of State sites. Less than a mile away, the Kroger recently expanded, an $8.8M investment, and a Pets Supplies Plus was built.
