The first of several balconies for the apartments at Village Square went up last week with workmen installing the black fixture to the norh side of the building on Locust Street in downtown Floyd.

Afterwards, developer Woody Crenshaw (right) inspected the installation and delcared the effort a success as storms moved into the Floyd area from the West.

When completed, the Village Square, located directly across the street from the Floyd County Store, will include retail, residential and, hopefully, a restaurant.

Crenshaw is hoping for an opening of the development sometime in late Spring or early Summer, completing another part of the rennovation and revitalization of downtown.
