Burlington and Alamance County

Recommended Posts

The Burlington City Council will consider a rezoning request — the third for a Burlington landowner and developer — for a retail project potentially worth $6 million to $8 million near Alamance Crossing.

 

Property owner Ed Tam is asking for 7 acres east of University Drive, south of South Church Street and west of Huffman Lane to be rezoned as conditional businesses, which will have a maximum of five lots. Each of the buildings will be no larger than 6,000 or 7,000 square feet, Tam said.

There is also a rezoning request for a large tract of land on Long Pine Rd (near Outback) for more restaurants, a hotel, etc.

Just as the news broke that the Ramada Inn in Burlington had closed, a report Thursday said that Hilton wants to build a new hotel near Huffman Mill Road.

Tru by Hilton plans to open a 98-room hotel at 963 Kirkpatrick Road by 2020, according to the Triad Business Journal.

A spokesman for the the Hilton chain did not provide other details.

Hilton describes the Tru brand as “vibrant, affordable and young-at-heart. It’s energetic, yet relaxing and comfortable.” It describes its rooms as “smaller, more efficiently designed with comfortable beds, and 55-inch TVs with a premium channel lineup.”

went to downtown Burlington for the first time today.  Small downtown and reminds me of Statesville or Salisbury with one major difference a Fortune 500 HQ that being Labcorp.  They occupy a lot of the office space in buildings in the downtown and a major part of downtown.    Downtown Graham no photos seemed busier on this day but I think that is due to Labcorp employees working from home.

My grandmother was born in Saxapahaw in the 1910s and boy has the town changed.  It was a mill town where she was born at home there now a thriving little artist colony, tourist town with a renovated mill with condos, apartments, retail, restaurants, a brewery etc.  Here are a few photos from yesterday.  In the UCLA region Upper Chatham Lower Alamance LOL.   Right on the Haw River just a few miles south of Burlington Graham.
