New plans submitted to Alexandria’s Planning Commission indicate that a gravel lot and trailer at 3120 Colvin Street could get turned into a two-story commercial building and motorcycle repair shop.

The new Colvin Street Garage building would replace the current A&B Auto lot and trailer. The new location is just up the street from the Halal slaughterhouse, which garnered some controversy back in 2020.

According to the application:

The plan proposes to remove the existing trailer and gravel parking. The plan proposes to build a two-story commercial building and the use for units A, B & C would be for motorcycle repair under “general automobile repair” and warehouse. The use of warehouse is storage, online [sales] and repair.

The Planning Commission will review the project on Tuesday, June 7.
