That public housing is great for the elderly that call it home, it does in fact need to be redone. Not everyone in Madison City is rich and there is a need for those homes. Its bad enough they don't have the upkeep they need to make them more respectful to the residents. Why don't we get the city to improve them. I

Redivision of 7 acres occuring on Sullivan Street, north of Spenryn Drive and east of Sullivan. Back portion will be a huge retention pond and the front portion (2.8 acres) will be suitable for development. I’m certain something is going on here...seen them out surveying and testing the land.

By the way...heard that the Sweet Shop downtown is to be sold....owner moving out of state apparently. This is what I heard...my source is just lousy Facebook. Could be a rumor.

The old sheet metal buildings on part of the new Sealy development property are being torn down. One went down yesterday. I imagine the old Madison Locksmith building will be soon.

In other words, this is why the city is paying to relocate that substation...to get it out of the way of this project. Further research shows SS Madison, LLC has a Sealy listed as an owner (same Sealy associated with Belk Hudson Lofts).

The city is paying what I assume is an incentive in the amount of $1.1M to this development agreement.

I am beyond excited!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like a four story Candlewood Suites hotel is possibly coming to that site.

I saw a trash dumpster located outside the defunct gas station (4Points Fuel) on the corner of Sullivan and Madison Blvd this morning. Could it be? Could it finally be the end of that eyesore?!

Saw that too. Hoping they aren't just clearing it out and redoing the inside. That building needs to go.
