I am wondering if anyone has an update on the Cornerstone & Searstone developments at High House & Davis Dr in Cary. I see that Crosland has now put a sign up on Davis across from Stone Creek Village, stating that outparcels and retail are coming soon. What is the final layout of Cornerstone and what may be coming? Also, when are they ever going to start Searstone?

I am really looking forward to this development, as I live in Stone Creek Village. I will never have to drive again. Any info would be much appreciated.

I'm not eager for all the additional traffic at the Davis and High House intersection once Searstone is developed.

I never have to wait more than one light cycle at that intersection at the times of day I ever go through it.

I like the idea of having this stuff close by rather than having to drive to somewhere like Beaver or Brier Creek for it. Far outweighs any rush hour inconvenience.

Default Fyi

The town residents sued Cary to try and stop this development and it is going to court (maybe today which is why I ran into this).

This is a wonderful project and for everyone that has expressed support on this thread, you all need to know how hard these projects are to get approved. Most people simply want to oppose anything and everything. One day, they oppose high density and the next they oppose sprawl. They simply don't get it.

That being said, if you want these types of developments, you should voice your opinions publically. All of the opponents certainly do!

It's difficult to decide about whether or not to support the SearStone project as it has morphed a few times from nearly entirely residential to substantially retail. The latter would mean a lot more traffic. Does anyone know what the current project is?

Thumbs up Park Place In Cary At High House & Davis, Plus Carolina Ale House

Hey All. I was doing a search to find out exactly what will be going in at the High House & Davis Drive intersection and this is how I came across this city-data site. I also contacted the developer and was told the development will be called Park Place. (carymixeduse.com). They would not tell me exactly what was going in there, as they are negotiating, but I was wondering if anyone has been able to find anything out. I am hoping for more restaurants, as well as some good shopping.

On a somewhat related note, I hear the Carolina Ale House will be going in across the street in Stone Creek Village.

Cornerstone, Stone Creek, Searstone and Park Place are on the four corners of the Davis/High House intersection. That seems like a lot retail!

Had not heard that about an Ale House. That is big news.

Checked today to see if the Judge had ruled on the Crosland Developmeent planned for High House and Davis (hearing was on April 17 with expected decision in 7-10 days) and there is still no word. I am hopeful the project will have to go back to the board for a vote that follows the guidelines set by the Town of Cary this time.

As for Searstone - originally they said it should be ready for move in summer of 2008 when I looked into it for my mother-in-law a long time ago. But that was long before they were talking about big box retail and expanded plans. As of now - they haven't even broken ground except the sales unit. They say they are not for profit but their home/unit pricing is very high and retail plans are very large. And if they are only at 35% that lot will be empty for a long time. Meanwhile, the adult living community of Carolina Preserve at Amberly is selling very well and houses in Heritage Pines don't stay on the market long so there is a desire for 50+ living. Makes you wonder why Searstone can't sell their minimum.

Thanks, RachelA for the informative update.

Does someone have more info on the ruling, now that 7-10 days have passed? Seems like that area is going to stay undeveloped forever (which could be wonderful as there needs to be more preservation of land around Davis and High House). Watching what looked to be a 200 year old oak tree felled for 'The Learning Experience' preschool/daycare nearby was painful.

Plus, Tranquility Sun & Spa went out of business in Cornerstone recently, and the Kroger on High House and 55 out of biz. Seems developers should be prudent about putting in more of the same stuff that is found throughout Cary and Apex.
