Photo feature: Construction work gets going at West End Plaza

More than two years after West End Plaza’s purchase, construction crews have finally started renovation work.

Interior work at the site includes renovating space for the Rowan County Board of Elections and Veterans Services. Contractors have also been hired to replace portions of the roof.

County Manager Aaron Church said contractors in late January first secured a notice to proceed with construction.

The total cost of phase 1 construction — Veterans Services, Board of Elections and roof replacement — is nearly $1.8 million.

Rowan County Commissioners purchased the former Salisbury Mall for about $3.4 million in late 2013. It has been renamed to West End Plaza. County officials plan to use most of the facility as office space.
