Thank God I left Oakhurst!
I don't think there will be another Banana Republic. Seems more like it will have Saks Fifth Ave, Nordtrom, Lacoste, an Apple store, etc... This is much better than a regular strip mall. If you don't want the area to turn into strip mall USA you would support projects like this. It is different and unique - it adds park land and entertainment to the area. Mecklenburg County is not going to be rural forever.

Default Village At Lake Norman is alive and well

You been talking to the wrong horse, 2 states. I heard from a more reliable source that everything is on track and looking good. I also heard that far more people support this project than oppose it, so get on the right bandwagon. The developer is meeting with the Town Board Friday and Monday evenings. This would not be happening if the project was not on track. It will be a great thing for the North End.

Here's a link: Charlotte Observer | 04/23/2008 | Cornelius OK's huge retail, residential development (http://www.charlotte.com/109/story/593677.html - broken link)

And here's the best part imo and the government will have nothing to do with it thank God:

Quote:
As part of the $516 million project, the developer has promised to widen Interstate 77 to at least three lanes in each direction between Exits 23 and 28 and add an interchange at Westmoreland Road.
Possible tenants:

Quote:
Walt Rector of Cornelius Bromont LLC said no tenants have signed commitments, although he mentioned Dean & DeLuca, Apple, Brooks Brothers, Origins, MAC and Aveda as possibilities.

“If we’re going to spend half a billion (dollars), it’s going to be my vision and my vision is high-end,” he said.
It's not a done deal yet though:

Quote:
The town board has retained the right to revoke its rezoning if it finds the future financing plan unacceptable.

“At the end of the day, if we don’t like the financing, this whole thing goes bye-bye,” said Town Manager Anthony Roberts.

I think it is a done deal. The town manager is just playing c.y.a. and trying to sound good and tough to the community.

In the end, there probably isnt a town or city that wouldnt have killed to be in Cornelius' position. It will do alot to benefit the community and provide a solid tax base. Not to mention a private developer will add 5 lanes to the interstate...If Cornelius had said no, it would have turned downs millions in tax revenue and it would have sent a bad signal to other developers.

It will be a few years til it is finished. I hope the roads are completed well ahead of this development.

The only real downside may be in Huntersville where Birkdale Village is. It will be interesting to see if it negatively affects this area. But I doubt it since the developer of The Village wants to attract "high end" tenants...we shall see.
