$11 million in construction ahead in Surry County

November 6th, 2007 · No Comments

Surry County has issued $11 million in building permits, Editor Andy Matthews reports in the Mount Airy News. The projects include several we’ve reported before, including the first phase ($1.4 million) of Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital’s $48-million expansion and improvement project in Elkin.

“Elkin is actually undergoing a ‘mini-construction’ boom,” Matthews reports, “with the hospital expansion; an $18-million, 221,000-square-foot Super Wal-Mart; a $4.5-million, 100-room, 3-story Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel; and a new Walgreens drugstore.”

Other projects mentioned in The News’ report (plus some of our own notes) include:

A $925,089 medical office building that BGSS Investments LLC is constructing at 100 North Pointe Boulevard in Mount Airy. The principals in BGSS Investments are Bobby Harold, co-founder of H&W Trucking, and his children Gary Harold and Susan Harold Thomas.

A $385,560 addition being developed by Diversified Investment Properties (partners Todd Surratt and C. Richard Vaughn Jr.) at the Southeastern Sign Works site, 609 Junction St. in Mount Airy.

A $482,030 addition at the Golden Living Center (formerly Surry Community Nursing Center), a skilled-nursing facility at 542 Allred Mill Road in Mount Airy. The building permit for what will be the Penny Walker Rehabilitation Center was issued to Beverly Health and Rehabilitation Services which is, like Golden Living Centers, a subsidiary of Beverly Enterprises Inc.

A $225,000 permit to Linda and Scott Needham for renovation and remodeling at 215 E. Main St. in Pilot Mountain, a building once occupied by Pilot Hosiery Mills.

Leading the list of residential building permits are two homes in the State Road area north of Elkin near Cedarbrook Country Club. One is a $550,000 permit issued to Mark and Vickie Heiner, 219 Camp Creek Lane; the other a $360,000 permit issued to Samuel Jason Couch, 326 Camp Creek Lane.
