DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) -

Dothan's newest entertainment venue, "The Plant",  is nearly complete.

Work started back in September to transform the old coke bottling plant into an entertainment complex. Crews have been working non-stop to get it ready in time for the first concert on Dec. 10.

Owner Alan Clark says they are in the final stretch to get the concert area complete. The stage is built and the restaurant and bar area are nearly complete.

The goal is to begin clean-up by next Tuesday.

"To see it evolve from when we bought it in May to where it is now is rewarding in a lot of ways," said Clark.

Clark says it's been a family effort to get the project done.

The first artist to perform is David Ramirez. Tickets can be purchased online at www.theplantdothan.com. The space can hold around 1,200 people. Clark says at last check, close to half of the tickets have been sold. Ramirez is just the start, they have other acts booked until March.

Owners are still looking to hire people to work at the venue - like bartenders and security. Applicants interested should contact DSI Security in Dothan and ask to speak with Alan Clark for more information.

The concert space is the first phase of work on the entertainment complex. Owners are also looking to create an outdoor amphitheater and mixed-use space with retailers and restaurants. Clark says the mixed-use space will likely be the next project they'll take on at the property, but there is no timeline set.
