Our CEO, Rev. Bill Stanfield, offers his perspective regarding the economic development on Reynolds Avenue in this article from the Post and Courier. The Macon Coffeehouse and Cafe is a sign of the efforts to re-develop in a way that strategically works with the needs and interests of our neighborhood. We are “pushing forward” in this continued effort together and anticipate much interest as growth from Park Circle and the Peninsula intersect in our community. Metanoia remains focused on ensuring this happens in a way that benefits our neighbors. As Rev. Bill says in the article, “It’s called gentrification with justice”.
The Charleston City Paper highlights the reasons why Metanoia and Duvall Catering partnered to bring The Macon Coffeehouse and Cafe to our community. The partnership offers the capacity to sustain the cafe at affordable prices and the strategic vision to see and make effective use of the assets available on Reynolds Avenue. We are committed to be good stewards of our neighborhood and are setting the stepping stones for other businesses to follow suit.
