CHARLOTTE — The fate of Steele Creek Limited Partnership’s planned outlet mall and industrial park will be in the hands of the Charlotte City Council March 18, when councilmembers are expected to vote on two rezoning proposals for the projects.
The rezonings are being requested for two sites, each on opposite sides of Interstate 485.
The first site is where the outlet mall — part of an 82-acre joint project involving Tanger Factory Outlet Centers and Simon Property Group — is expected to be built. The property is on the west side of I-485 and surrounded by Trojan Drive and Shopton, Dixie and Steele Creek roads.
On Monday, the City Council approved giving up to $5.1 million in property tax rebates, spread over 10 years, to the developers of the outlet mall. In exchange, the developers will have to improve the infrastructure in the area.
The second site, where the industrial park has been planned for 114 acres, is on the east side of I-485 at its intersection with Sandy Porter Road.
A public hearing for the rezoning requests was held Feb. 18.
The agenda for the March 18 council meeting is expected to be on the city’s website by March 13.
