Cary, NC - A long-awaited project that could bring office, retail, restaurants, hotels, multifamily housing and a Wegmans grocery store to one of the largest remaining pieces of vacant land in Cary is moving forward.
Columbia Development Group, a Columbia, South Carolina-based real estate development firm, expects to submit a rezoning request to the Town of Cary on Monday to make its vision a reality and bring thousands of new jobs to what is known as Cary’s eastern gateway. The 92-acre site is across the street from Cary Towne Center near Interstate 40.
"Upon arrival, this rezoning proposal will enable the creation of a beautiful and unique destination for individuals, families and businesses in Cary and the surrounding Triangle region to live, work and play," Abbitt Goodwin Jr., a partner at Columbia Development Group’s Raleigh office, said in a statement.
Columbia wants to bring up to 2 million square feet of mixed-use space, including two hotels and multifamily units – most of which would be over the retail space, according to the developer. It would also include an amphitheater, green space and parking decks.
