CORNELIUS – Antiquity LLC, the developer of the mixed-use Antiquity development in this north Mecklenburg town, has two upcoming meetings with town officials as it seeks approval for the commercial piece of the project.
The developer originally planned to have 60,000 square feet of retail anchored by a 30,000-square-foot grocery store, but was unable to get a commitment from a grocer at that size.
Instead, the plan is to have a 53,000-square-foot Harris Teeter, meaning Antiquity had to revise the site plan to accommodate a total of 83,000 square feet of retail, according to Mark Frye, the Antiquity development manager.
Cornelius officials now must approve those changes.
The commercial development at Antiquity is planned near the intersection of Catawba Avenue and N.C. Highway 115, close to the town’s border with Davidson. The revised site plan and elevations are available on the Cornelius website.
The first meeting, in front of the Cornelius Planning Board, will be at 6:30 p.m. on June 10. The Planning Board can either give its recommendation to the Town Board of Commissioners or take more time on the decision.
If the Planning Board makes a recommendation in June, the Town Board will consider the changes in its July 22 meeting, at 6:30 p.m. Both meetings will be at Cornelius Town Hall, at 21445 Catawba Avenue.
