A Post reader asked about ongoing construction activity at the 300 block of South Main Street in Salisbury.
The 300 block, which is getting an uplift, is owned by Wallace Reality. Specifically, the buildings are located at addresses 310, a vacant store-front; 314, Railway Crossfit; and 322, Rock’s Furniture.
Victor Wallace, president of Wallace Realty, said that each of the buildings have been and will be going through several face-lifts.
As a proposal to the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) says, the face-lifts include: demolishing two existing awnings and replacing them with new anodized aluminum awnings, featuring recessed lights; reconfiguring one existing awning and installing recessed lights; painting accent graphics onto exterior walls; demolishing and reconfiguring the upper-level metal windows with new spandrel glass; installing a new brick ‘pilaster’ on the main façade, to feature metal cap and uplighting.
The proposal was presented to the HPC on February 8, 2018.
All improvements were approved by Salisbury’s HPC, Wallace said.
