A couple of new buildings located next to each other are changing the landscape of a city blocks on Detroit Avenue, once home to the Ganley Auto Group.
Despite the cold, construction crews have made progress on the future homes of Discount Drug Mart and Family Dollar.
The Discount Drug Mart is slightly ahead of its neighbor across Grace Avenue. That project has been a contentious one among neighbors, however Grace Avenue residents won a small victory last week when the city's architectural board of review denied a request for the store to build illuminated signs on that side of the property.
Utility issues have held up the progress of the Family Dollar project has been slightly held up by utility issues. Construction of the 9,000-sqaure-foot, single-story chain discount store is back on track.
Both projects are expected to be completed by the summer.
