Dresser, who is also a general contractor, said the group plans to redevelop the property as a gas station and convenience store, and lease the adjacent building at 1307 South Federal Highway.

“We think it’s a great opportunity for the service station,” Dresser told TRD, adding that the group is actively looking for other opportunities for redevelopment. “It will be a nice upgrade for the community.”
