Carniceria Y Taqueria Durango Renovation

On January 1, 2014 the Town of Buckeye in Western Maricopa County became a City.  Over a year has come and gone and becoming a City is a big responsibility and the residences in Buckeye are stepping up to the challenge.  Late last year, the City of Buckeye provided a Grant (catalyst) to assist business owners to improve its cache of buildings to attract more business.

We are seeing allot of excitement coming in the near future from the recently awarded projects.  We are all Chomping at the bit just like first settlers who must have watched with excitement as the waters flowed down the Buckeye Canal system in 1907.

Serbin Studio’s involvement on the Buckeye Main Street Coalition, we take pride of assisting business owners in many ways. Whether it’s educating others how important it is for your business presence to communicate to the public, whether its your web presence or physical storefront, we have been working on our design muscles.

Downtown Buckeye along Monroe has a collection of historic buildings (OK they aren’t actually on the historic register), but they do have history.  Buckeye wants to preserve and improve upon what stock we have.  Just like a cowboy trying to stay on the horse a little bit longer, we are all working on improving how we do things.

The Carniceria Y Taqueraa Durango resides in one building in the heart of downtown Buckeye.  Located a stones throw from City Hall and Buckeye Valley Chamber, a portion of it currently sits vacant.  It is begging for some TLC to inspire others to occupy and utilize it.  Late December 2014, a design was proposed by Serbin Studio to the City of Buckeye Council and was approved.

Serbin Studio is currently developing the design and providing the necessary details so it is a successful build.
