Something to think about over your weekend:
“What does it mean when significant structures are torn down so quickly? . . . In addition to the disorientation that comes with such quick changes, we also miss out on the chance to see old buildings reborn. There’s no way to know which decrepit manufacturing facility might be the next Optimist Hall in 50 years, or whether an old factory and warehousing site could be the future Camp North End.”

Another adaptive reuse project is in the works in Charlotte – this time on Wilkinson Boulevard. New life is coming to the old Park-N-Shop grocery store property as plans for it to become office space move forward. We believe in giving old buildings a second chance and we’re grateful when developers agree.
