Plans for a new Harris Teeter at The Plaza and Central Avenue have received the go-ahead from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Commission’s zoning committee.
On Wednesday, the committee recommended approval of the rezoning request of 3.2 acres from business district (B-2 Ped) to an optional zoning business district (B-2 Ped-Optional). The Charlotte City Council is expected to vote on the rezoning request in September.
Developers plan to replace the existing 29,736-square-foot grocery store with a new store that is not to exceed 51,000 square feet.
If approved, the new store would not exceed 60 feet in height and would include a “green” roof and an outdoor seating section.
The zoning committee also recommend rezoning approval for:
• a new dental facility at Idlewild Road between East W.T. Harris Boulevard and Lymont Drive. The request made by New Hope Baptist Church seeks to change the zoning of 1.66 acres from single-family residential (R-4) to institutional and allow for a dental outreach from the church.
• The construction of six attached townhomes with porches and patios at the northwest corner of Pegram and 18th streets. The United House of Prayer wants to change the zoning from single-family residential (R-5) to urban residential conditional (UR-2 CD).

• Another rezoning request from Louis Ratcliffe Inc. was deferred until the Sept. 6 meeting. That request would change the zoning of 3.23 acres at West Sugar Creek Road, North Graham Street and Mineral Springs Road from a business district (B-2) to a mixed-use development district (MUDD-O).
