29 N. Developments Upset About Development

Yet Another Shopping Center (YASC) has been proposed: “Northtown Center,” between the Woodbrook and Carrsbrook developments on 29 North. The plan is for it to have the usual array of big box retail and fast food. The homeowners associations at Woodbrook and Carrsbrook are upset, though, because the development would get rid of the stream that puts the “brook” in “Woodbrook” and “Carrsbrook,” and the prospect of a 20-foot retaining wall isn’t particularly appealing to them, either. They’re not trying to fight the development, they emphasize, but see it as inevitable — they just want it to be less intrusive and less environmentally unsound. Julie Stavitski had the story in Friday’s Progress.

  • I like that (YASC). Hey Waldo, you have a pic as the topic of construction crew with the subject being (YASC).

    I want to know what happen to the Albemarle Town Center project. That was the supposely favorite of everyone since it was closer to town. I think the project was behind Blockbuster next to Sperry. I haven’t heard anything about that place.

    I really need to snap some pictures for new section titles — the hypothetical ones that I created, like, three years ago aren’t really applicable. Definitely a construction one. I want a shiny yellow bulldozer photo. :) And a meta-media section, some way to represent stories that are about local news outlets. Lord only knows how I’ll represent that.

  • One of the developers said in the news that they planned to submit site plans to the county within the coming weeks and they plan to break ground around the end of this year. The first store is supposed to open early/mid 2006 along with the arena and north pointe (if it gets approved)

  • im sorry that post ^ was about the Albemarle Place Town Center not the nortown center
