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.”

Alamance County’s economic stability is near the highest it’s ever been.

The county is within the top 26 most economically stable in North Carolina, according to the 2020 Development Tier Designations report from the N.C. Department of Commerce....

Burlington Economic Development Director Peter Bishop is positive about the report.....

Alamance had the state’s sixth-highest population growth rate at 6.4 percent, and a notably lower unemployment rate at 3.9 percent. The median household income also increased by $1,854 from 2019 to 2020. These incorporated data points give Alamance its highest economic ranking since 2015, according to previous Development Tier Designation records.
