A building that tells a story

The three-story building located at the corner of North First Street and Main Street in downtown Albemarle North Carolina was built in 1908 and has been the home of several businesses over the years. The most notable being the former Lowder Hardware. The 2-story annex portion of the facility, primarily used as storage for the hardware store, collapsed onto itself due to roof failure after years of neglect. After obtaining the proper demolition permits, the developer removed the collapsed structure in preparation for a new 3-story brick apartment complex complementing the primary historic structure, architecturally blending it with adjacent buildings in the downtown area. The primary historic structure was completely gutted and the developer renovated the 3-story building to house upscale luxury apartments and commercial spaces.
