This is what I mean when I say that Charlotte needs to say NO to growth. When Hannaford's moved into the Eastland mall tract, it killed Harris Teeter, and ultimately Hannaford's itself. The nearest large grocery stores in the area are now SavOn that caters to the Hispanic trade and Harvey's (formerly known as Bi-Loo) where illegal activities abound in the parking lot.

The zoning people should be forced to own property in the area that they're rezoning rather than just being required to look at a map. Owning property in an area gives one a better sense of reality.
You're wrong about Hannaford and Harris Teeter. Harris Teeter shut down years after Hannaford did, and this was largely because of the changing demographics around the mall. Hannaford was forced to shut down throughout the entire Southeast because of Delhaize acquiring the company.

I do not think Delhaize executed decisions related to the acquisition of Hannaford' very well. Food Lion stores were not, and are not, up to par with Hannaford stores. Instead of implementing the best of Hannaford into Food Lion or shuttering Food Lion stores, Delhaize focused on Food Lion and divested Hannaford store locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

It appears the grocery-anchored Arboretum Office Park redevelopment was approved in Charlotte's City Council Zoning Meeting on Monday, 18 September. It goes before Charlotte City County for approval in October.

The Arboretum Office Park has been underutilized since its inception. The offices/storefronts that face the rear of the development have never been completely leased, if at all. The center building, between the banks, was originally supposed to be another bank but build as more mostly unused office space.
Up until last year, this corner had the oddity of two Wells Fargo bank branches.

For the most part, the street that runs through the office park is used as a cut-through for inbound Providence Road traffic intending to turn right onto Pineville-Matthews Road.

Across the street at the Arboretum shopping center, the landlord is slowly trying to refresh a center that, while still very busy, is clearly showing its age when compared to newer centers like Waverly and the under-construction Rea Farms, which are only a few miles down Providence Road.

Intersection already sucks there. Why make it worse?

Arboretum Office Park has signalized access at Providence Road. A traffic signal would be necessary at the access at Pineville Matthews Road.

I wonder if that won't just add to the confusion and traffic because it will be so close to the existing Providence / 51 light? I don't think that corner property extends far enough down 51 to allow traffic flow property for two lights.

Apparently the new supermarket will be a Publix. They seem to be trying to locate everywhere there is a Harris Teeter nearby. The new Publix stores are nice but they must compete with the hometown favorite Harris Teeter.

I do not see how it would create additional confusion. Signalized intersections would have turn arrow signals. There is not room to extend left turn lanes.
