UNC to buy University Square on Franklin Street

5 posts in this topic

UNC-Chapel Hill has announced that is about to close on a $45.75 million purchase of University Square shopping center which sits on Franklin Street and borders university property. The site has over 1,300 private student residences, several acres of surface parking lots, and probably 50+ businesses. No plans are set just yet but Chancellor Moeser says he foresees at a minimum, parking decks to be constructed to help ease on campus parking.

It'll be interesting to see how heavily the university levies it's mighty sword upon the Granville Residents. ie: getting caught with contraband could now jeopardize your status as a student. With Granville privately owned, there was at least some firewall between the two.

Demolition is beginning soon on this. Time Out closes at the end of the month and will relocate further down Franklin St.
