US 1 Revitalization takes a big step forward!

“Dr Rajesh Ailani purchased the former Daytona Beach Community College building at 699 N Dixie Freeway (SE corner of US 1 and Wayne Ave) last August, and work is well underway to renovate the existing building on the 1.2 acre site. When the extensive renovations are complete the building will re-open as the Brilliance Assisted Living Facility. The new adult congregate living facility will feature 54 beds and various amenities including a swimming pool. Parking for the new facility will include spaces off the alley behind the building in conjunction with an easement granted by the adjacent church.”
