Food Lion Clears Another Hurdle
If all goes well, Whispering Pines could have a Food Lion by this summer.
During a special called meeting Tuesday the Whispering Pines Council approved several revisions to a conditional use permit, including a two-phase construction plan for the shopping center, which will be developed by JDH Capital. The revisions paved the way for ground to be broken and construction to begin on the proposed shopping center that will feature a Food Lion and other smaller stores.
The shopping center is located on the corner of N.C. 22 and Sullivan Drive.
The ground-breaking is likely to occur before the month ends.
Phase one includes the main building in the center, which includes the Food Lion and four smailler store fronts. Phase two includes two buildings, located to the left of the main building. Phase two has no start or completion date currently.
In addition to the phasing for the project, the council also voted to approve the storm water plan. At prior regular council meetings the council voted to approve plans for landscaping and lighting. A sign plan remains unapproved, but will not affect the start of construction.
