We have been looking and found a few development we are interested in moving to in the next 18-24 months. We are very fond of Compass Pointe but we are having difficulty in finding information on future developements in and around it. A big sticking point for us is the area across the highway...may be a construction or dump area. Does anyone know if there are plans for more residential or commercial (ei: grocery store, drug store, reaturants) being planned for the area. Also do the plan on any type of "cut thru" road over to Rt 17 where presently all the business are located. Any info appreciated Thanks....

As far as I can tell the "cut-though" road between 74/76 and Highway 17 is still planned to open in 2013. From Google maps it looks almost complete. Meantime, Lanvale Road is the way to shopping on 17.

I see your "sticking point" across from the Compass Point entrance. It looks like a gravel pit for the road construction. I checked the county GIS, here: http://gis.brunsco.net/gisweb/gis.aspx/ The land is owned by Martin Marietta Materials of Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is 146 acres, assessed at $2.78 million.

All you can do is follow news stories, or contact the county council or planning board. One would hope the owners would find it feasible to sell the site after the road construction is finished, but I doubt there is "planning" that far in advance.

There are train tracks directly across the highway from Compass Pointe so it is unlikely that stores will be built there. As the development grows and the population increases it is possible stores could spring up in the wooded sections on the same side of the highway as CP. The developers plan to have a 2nd (main) access road to CP with some stores along it. No telling when this might be done, a few years at least. As mentioned, you could take Lanvale Road to the back entrance of Magnolia Greens to access the stores in the front of that development or if you take Lanvale to the end it will put you just past Brunswick Forest and the stores there. To reach Walmart and the stores in front of Waterford it is probably easier to take 74/76 to the 2nd Leland exit.

Good point. The train tracks probably service the gravel pit. I think future buyers should treat that as a semi-permanent industrial area, and factor that into their calculations of whether they want to buy at Compass Pointe.

The train tracks go all the way to Sunny Point so you probably don't wanna know what is hauled on them. There is also a large treated lumber facility right off the new bypass that has tracks to it.
I doubt there will be any commercial developments in the area, mostly zoned industrial on that side of the highway
