North River Village is a mixed use development with commercial and residential uses planned at the southeast corner of Guess Road and Latta Road in the City of Durham, North Carolina.

Publix is targeted as the grocery tenant. It would operate in a 45,000 square feet store with a pharmacy drive thru. If realized, this store would be Publix's first in Durham County.

A community meeting was held recently on Thursday, 19 November 2015. ("Community Meeting November 19 Presentation.")

Has anyone heard anything lately in regards to North River Village? I have not heard anything new in regards to it or Publix.

I see online that there's a zoning meeting about this, at Durham city hall, on February 14. Will be interesting to hear what happens.

I have noticed the same. The rezoning for North River Village should be approved as tenants have signed.

There are two supermarkets at the intersection of Guess Road and Horton Road: Food Lion #420, Cross Creek, 3808 Guess Road, Durham, North Carolina 27705-1506; and Harris Teeter #254, 1501 Horton Road, Durham, North Carolina 27705-2005. (Food Lion #420 is among the few Food Lion stores that have pharmacy departments.)

Guess Road presently has a mix of residential and commercial development. I do not see how North River Village could be a problem.

Watch the video of the city council meeting. The opponents and then the council members who voted against state clearly all the reasons why it could be a problem. I travel through that intersection several times a week - not good. Nearby Roxboro and Latta/Infinity intersection is a mess. The extra traffic, noise, and clearing of trees for a large shopping center doesn't fit in that residential area. There are underutilized commercially zoned tracts in that area that should be rehabbed & used for such projects. The solution is not to clear trees and drop commercial projects in residential areas beside an elementary school.

North River Village is not limited to a Publix supermarket-anchored retail center. Residences are planned.

Should the retail, dining, and service businesses at Guess Road and Horton Road be condemned because they do not fit into a residential area? The reality is Guess Road has commercial and residential development.

I have not seen opponents of North River Village come forward with alternatives.
