Local developer assembles properties for Boulevard redevelopment

Land includes the former sites of Bill’s Barbecue and Shenandoah Shutters.

Rounding out a week of big news regarding new development on The Boulevard, another local developer is getting in the game and betting big on the corridor’s future.

J.F. Williams III, a retired real estate broker who was with the firm Harrison & Bates, has cobbled together several properties, totaling just over three acres, between Ellen and Arlington Roads, near Interstate 95.

The properties included buildings that once housed Bill’s Barbecue and Shenandoah Shutters. Williams razed the Bill’s Barbecue building in 2014, and had the Shenandoah Shutters building (pictured) demolished just this past week.
