Yet Another Shopping Center

This May, the Albemarle Board of Supervisors will look at rezoning the recently-bulldozed ex-forest-land across from Hollymead Gardens Cemetery on 29 North to create yet another shopping center, “Hollymead Town Center.” (Not to be confused with the shopping center planned for the Hydraulic/29 intersection, Albemarle Place, nor the shopping center planned for the corner of the corner of 29 and Proffit Rd.) This one will contain the much-discussed Target, plus a Giant, 1,300 apartments and townhouses, and 300,000 square feet of office space. The developers tout it as another Downtown Mall. County planning staff have recommended that the project be denied, who did so, hence the appeal to the Board of Supervisors. David Dadurka has the story in today’s Progress.
