Academy @ Main
Academy @ Main, the mixed-use redevelopment destination at the corner of Main and Academy streets, is underway. The development will include restaurants, retail and office space while offering more than 120 public parking spaces.
The project includes renovation of the former Canton Elementary School and the former Canton Textile Mills office building. A new Panera Bread is also being built as part of the development. The Panera Bread will be the very first drive-through restaurant in Downtown Canton.
The Jones Building
The Historic Jones Building will offer space as a cultural arts and activities center that will benefit the community. Canton is continuing to work with Lord, Aeck & Sargent as the architectural firm. Upon completion, the building will include classroom and meeting space, public restrooms, a visitors center, a reception area and a multi-purpose special events space.
Two floors with an additional 625 parking spaces are under construction as Northside Hospital-Cherokee continues expansion of its brand new facility which opened last May.
