NC grocer plots new store for major Pittsboro development


A Triad grocer has plans to bring a new store to a major mixed-use development currently underway in Pittsboro.

Winston-Salem-based Lowes Foods in April filed plans with the town of Pittsboro for the development of Northwood Lowes Foods. The project calls for a grocery store, retail space and a gas station at the ongoing Mosaic development.

Plans filed with the town show a 50,000-square-foot grocery store and 8,400 square feet of retail space – not including the gas station. The project is situated on seven acres off Hwy. 15/501 by U.S. 64, north of Pittsboro. The site is flanked to the east, south and west by lots designated for future development, though the filings don’t describe exactly what that may bring.

Representatives for Lowes Foods and parent company Alex Lee could not be reached for comment.

The developer on the project is The Crown Companies of Dobson. The property owner is Preston Development Company, the owner and developer of Chatham Park, the 7,100-acre mixed-use project into which Mosaic will serve as a commercial gateway.

Construction on phase 1 for Mosaic began last fall.

总而言之,Mosaic 将具有以下特点:

  • 超过 200,000 平方英尺的当地和区域商店、餐厅和服务设施,包括微型啤酒厂以及厨师主导的快速休闲餐厅;
  • 拥有114间客房的旗舰酒店及164套“城郊”公寓住宅;
  • 88,000平方英尺的技术和创意办公空间;
  • 10,000平方英尺的多代教育空间;
  • 30,000平方英尺的休闲和市政设施,包括八个屏幕的首映电影院、350个座位的现场表演剧院、100个座位的黑匣子剧院以及带室外舞台的中央绿地;和
  • 25% 的空间用于开发项目的开放空间,包括聚会空间、步行道和自行车道、池塘和人工湿地。

Commercial tenants officially announced for Mosaic include Town Hall Burger + Beer and People’s Coffee as well as an Aveda Day Spa and Salon and UNC Urgent Care.

Chatham Park, once completed, is expected to include 22,000 residences along with 22 million square feet of office, research, retail, educational and community space. The first homes in the community are scheduled to be ready this fall.

Lowes Foods has nearly 100 stores across North Carolina and South Carolina, including 15 in the Triangle.
