Apartment, Retail Project Proposed for Elon

From the Burlington Times-News:

The Board of Aldermen will consider voting in favor or against the proposed 53,579-square-foot building, which will feature commercial properties on a portion of the first floor and apartments geared toward Elon University students in the remaining spaces, during its meeting Tuesday evening.

The land on Haggard Avenue, currently an empty space between Skid’s Restaurant and a residential house, is owned by Elon University, but the proposed building would be developed by EDG Properties LLC, the same company that built the three-story Elon Town Center building in 2011. This new project is called “The Park Place at Elon.”…

The second, third and fourth floors of the newly proposed building, along with a portion of the first floor, facing the Elon University-owned Oaks Apartment dormitories, will be apartments, while the remaining 6,180 square feet on the first floor, facing Haggard Avenue, will consist of retail space, McDonald said. He is in preliminary discussion with a small pharmacy for space at the corner of the building with a small grocery store taking the remaining space, he said.
