The buyers of the old YMCA building downtown have stepped forward. Shellie Barnett, president of Jonesboro-based Deseo, LLC, said the company plans to restore the building and turn it into office space, including an insurance agency and a financial planning office on the first floor. Barnett said the restoration would cost over $1 million and could take years, but declined to say how much Deseo paid for the building. A deed has yet to be filed with the Pulaski County clerk’s office. In addition to creating office space, plans eventually call for restoring the building’s pool and steam room, which will then be available for use by building tenants.
