The Red Front Department Store building as it stands today on Belmont Avenue and Pegram Street.

 

In February 2017, the Historic Landmarks Commission voted to recommend that the Charlotte City Council designate the Red Front Department Store Building be a historic landmark in the Belmont community of Charlotte.

The property owners of 1125 Belmont Ave, Charlotte in the Belmont neighborhood are petitioning to rezone from the R-5 zoning district to MUDD-O (Mixed-Use Development District – Optional) zoning district. The purpose of the rezoning is to allow for the adaptive-use of the existing historic commercial building as an Eating, Drinking, and Entertainment Establishment (Type 2), brewery, retail, or residential use.
