Albany - New life is coming to the old Belk's building downtown. Developer Peter Studl is expected to close on the property in a few weeks.

He hopes to turn the 51,000 square foot building into retail space or possibly a museum for southern architecture.

 "We have other properties for restaurants and retail space that we've acquired, " said Peter Studl. "So we're putting this into the portfolio. We're treating all of downtown Albany as one project to see what the best use is."

Studl is also thinking about turning the building into condominiums or office space. In the last year, Studl has bought seven properties in downtown Albany.

He plans to open a Fire Truck Pizza on Front Street and several other restaurants.
