Shenandoah Avenue project
EZ Mobility Solutions, a Roanoke Valley company that provides mobility assistance products such as ramps, lifts and devices for homes, businesses and government agencies, is building a new home for itself on Shenandoah Avenue Northwest.
President David Todd said the project is expected to cost $5 million.
Todd said he founded the company at home and incorporated it in 2008. Its leased home in northeast Roanoke County is becoming too small, so a new one is needed. The company employs 30 people.
Plans call for a 4,000-square-foot showroom as part of the planned 33,000-square-foot structure. A warehouse will take up most of the building.
A crew making way for EZ Mobility Solutions has demolished several small buildings that stood for years on the site, which is west of Peters Creek Road. The buildings included the former home of Charbel’s Sports Grill.
When the new facility is completed, possibly in July, the company plans to revise its name to EZ Mobility Solutions, Todd said. He would like to eventually add what he called a demonstration house to the headquarters.
