Aiken’s Commercial Buildings Leasing Up


The number of vacant commercial spaces around the area is slowly dwindling.

At least that’s the consensus of local Realtors who work to fill empty buildings vacated by businesses that have relocated or closed.

Though some of those buildings have been vacant for years, many have become occupied in the last year, which not only fills a void in the various shopping centers but creates more jobs and shopping opportunities for Aikenites.

A lot has happened in the last year.

The City of Aiken took an old bank building that stood empty for several years on Laurens Street and converted it into its new administration and finance office. The initial plan was to add on to the existing municipal building, but City officials found it to be more fiscally sound to repurpose the large downtown structure.
