Beets Auto Body Razed

This week marked the end of the Beets Auto Body building after 80 years on the corner of SE 76th and Stark. Over the last year its future was unsure, especially after developer Randy Rapaport boarded up the property. Many residents were concerned about how long it would sit vacant but not too long after the food carts and Artists where evicted, the building was demolished. Now we will have a long continuous open space on Stark Street. There is a new owner of all the properties form the corner of 76th Ave, 518 SE 76th Ave, to the former veterinary office at 7714 SE Stark. This includes the Montavilla Farmers Market lot.
