SALISBURY, MD --- In unveiling Salisbury University’s updated Facilities Master Plan last April, SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach predicted the University would eventually have a larger presence in downtown Salisbury.
Thanks to local developers Palmer Gillis and Tony Gilkerson that prediction is coming true sooner rather than later. Gillis and Gilkerson will donate one of West Main Street’s signature structures, the Plaza Gallery Building and Annex, to the Salisbury University Foundation, Inc. The gift is valued at some $4.4 million.
Publishers Notes: Gillis/Gilkerson paid $155,000.00 for the building. Not for nothing but I personally don't believe there is any privately owned building Downtown worth anywhere near $4.4 Million, DO YOU? Maybe they got a "drive by" appraisal like the City did with the old Fire Station 16.
That being said, how much does that now take off the tax roll again?
