Sedgefield Shopping Center demolition to start in 2nd quarter

Sedgefield Shopping Center will soon be no more, as the retail complex's owners prepare for demolition that will make way for a new, mixed-use development.

A representative of owner Marsh Properties told me recently that the company plans to start demolition and site work on the South End location in the second quarter this year. After that, construction on phase one of the $190-million mixed-use redevelopment is set to start. A Harris Teeter, along with 14,000 square feet of retail space, is set to deliver in early 2017. That will be followed by 300 apartment units.

The planned redevelopment covers more than the shopping center: The area totals 59.4 acres, extending east of South Boulevard along Elmhurst Road. You can see a PDF of a detailed site plan, with roads and different development phases, online here.

Sedgefield Shopping Center is far from the only project going on right now on that stretch of South Boulevard.

  • Pepsi Bottling Ventures is looking to sell their 5.2-acre site across the street, at South Blvd. and New Bern, marketing it as a major redevelopment opportunity.
  • Developer Peter Pappas is looking at a site at Remount and South Blvd. for a new apartment complex.
  • And Publix is set to open in March or early April a few blocks north, where Camden is also building a 266-unit Camden Southline complex.

More apartments? Really?

I read recently in the CBJ that Johnny Harris was expressing concern about the quality of some of these new apartment developments. I'm glad he said that, because the Park @ Drexel Apts. look like they have heat pumps sticking through the wall. That's the kind of construction you'll find in California, except coastal California weather can tolerate that sort of thing. As we can see this morning, we can't.

And about the new Teeter...when it opens, will the frumpy Teeter @ PRSC close? That place is a dump.

Do we have to tear out every piece of our past and develop it to the maximum? I hate to see this post war part of town taken out.

Hi Anon 10:45, I have heard that opinion from a few people. Combined with the redevelopment of the Pepsi site, that area will soon look very different.
