The store at the corner of Cape Fear and S. Lake Park boulevards was heavily damaged from the past two hurricane seasons.

According to Jeremy Hardson with Planning & Development, crews started gutting the building Tuesday.

He says the owners plan to make this lot into a mixed-use building with commercial businesses on the ground floor and residential space above it.
