ANNEX DEMOLITION STATUS
The Annex has successfully been demolished. The St. Anthony Association of North Carolina is now moving forward with discussions on rebuilding and the future of the residential side of the property.
In Spring, 2008, the alumni association hired a project manager to handle asbestos assessment and abatement (necessary prior to demolition of the structure) and met with the Chapel Hill Historic District Committee to ask for permit approval for demolition of the structure, which was granted at the April 11th meeting.
Our plan is to build new construction to ensure current code compliance, a more workable floor plan and a longer life, including the reconfiguration of the entire roof structure.
Building entries and floor plans are being reconsidered, especially bathroom facilities, with a goal to maximize rentable space while affording storage and more privacy. We are planning to demolish and, in all likelihood, maintain its footprint while building to current building and fire codes required by both the town of Chapel Hill and the University.
This is a rough roadmap for getting the Annex demolished.
