SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A Topsham development company has submitted a proposal to convert South Portland’s former National Guard armory into a multi-use property anchored by a gas station and convenience store.

Priority Real Estate Group is seeking a conditional use zoning amendment to redevelop the building at the foot of the Casco Bay Bridge.

The city agreed to sell the armory to Priority for $700,000.

The $2.5 million project would preserve the art deco-style front section of the brick building. In addition to a convenience store, it would contain a coffee shop or deli, professional office space, community meeting space and a tourist information bureau.

Priority President Jim Howard tells the Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1Dsugp2 ) the goal is to provide needed services while preserving the building’s character.
