Wilmorite Construction, based in Rochester, NY, has proposed turning a property on Erwin Road near Duke University’s East Campus into a seven-story, 80 unit apartment building, the News & Observer reports.

The developer says is has reached a purchase agreement for the 1.2 acre property with an overall appraised value of $999,910, based on Durham County records.

The site currently has a car wash and the Sam’s Quick Shop bar and beer store.

While the sale hasn’t been officially completed, Wilmorite submitted the plans to the Durham City-County Planning Department in June. The existing structures on the site will be demolished.

Sam’s owner John Boy owns the site, consisting of four separate parcels.
