CHARLOTTE – Mecklenburg County has issued two more permits to suburban Cleveland-based DDR Corp. for construction on the Belgate shopping center, off Ikea Boulevard in northeast Charlotte.
The two latest permits were for construction on 10,551 square feet of space apiece in what DDR is calling “Block C Small Shop A” and “B,” according to county records. The permits were valued at $525,000 each.
Neither DDR nor Charlotte-based Choate Construction, the general contractor on the project, was available for comment Wednesday morning, so it’s not clear exactly what Block C will include.
Construction on the shopping center began in July and the majority of the shell work has been completed. Once finished, Belgate will be home to more than 150,000 square feet of new retail along with the 367,000-square-foot Ikea already onsite.
