A second 49,500 square foot grocery store has been proposed for the corner of Raven Ridge and Falls of Neuse Roads. Tonight we attended a meeting at Millbrook Exchange Park where Richard Rowe of Wakefield Associates unveiled plans for a Lowes Grocery Store plus additional space for offices and small retail.
A large crowd of nearby neighbors attended the meeting as did representatives of NORCHOA. We noted vigorous opposition to yet more retail promising to strip out our section of Falls of Neuse and transform our neighborhoods into a retail district.
Unfortunately, the developer did not provide copies of the planned development. However, we can convey that it is very similar to the proposed Publix at Dunn and Falls of Neuse.
Stay tuned. Much more to follow on these quickly occurring developments (pardon the pun).
