It's a $325,000 investment into a Watertown building, near Public Square.

The old Chop 'N' Save furniture building was bought by local businessman Jake Johnson.

He says he's putting on a new roof and siding and installing new windows, doors and lighting.

Johnson hopes the space will be used as an indoor farmers market.

He has asked for funding from the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) - the $10 million state grant the city won.
