Upton's is going bye-bye (finally)

It's about damn time.

Demolition of an abandoned department store on Albemarle Road is scheduled for this week.

A $45,000 matching grant has been awarded to the owners of the vacant Upton’s property. The funds come from the city’s Façade Improvement Grant Program, which helps businesses located in targeted revitalization corridors.

City leaders tweaked the façade grant last year by adding demolition of empty big-box retail stores as a qualified expense and opening up the areas where the grant is eligible.The program provides 50% reimbursement to commercial or industrial businesses or property owners for eligible renovation costs, the city says.
