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.

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.”

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.

this would be the biggest announcement in Alamance County a new UPS facility in Graham Mebane.

""A commercial park in eastern Alamance County is under consideration for the largest single economic development project in the county’s history.  At its Aug. 11 meeting, the Graham City Council will consider approval of its share of nearly $4 million in economic incentives payable over five years to United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS), which is considering a $262 million facility in North Carolina Commerce Park (NCCP) just off Interstate 40. The performance-based incentive would require UPS to successfully complete the project and create 451 jobs paying an average salary of $65,147.  The average annual wages in Alamance County is just more than $40,000.""

If the Raleigh and Durham MSAs are combined there is a real possibility Alamance County could be added due to existing commuting patterns.  Today Burlington has its own MSA which includes all of the urbanized portions of Alamance County. Over the years I’ve always thought Burlington should naturally be apart of Greensboro’s MSA since two cities have grown towards each other over the last 20 years, but with High Point joining the Winston-Salem MSA, i felt i clearly lacked the understanding as to how MSAs are formed. Greensboro and High Point are virtually the same city. 

Traditionally Alamance county has always been considered a part of the Triad. With the growth happening in Mebane and Graham it will be interesting to see how that dynamic changes.
