Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. Anyone know what happen to Gap, Goody's and Friedman's Jewelers in Gaston Mall? In other News..... Bosch Tools and Cochrane Furniture in Lincoln County are closing. Here are a few news articles about the closings. http://lincolntribune.com/modules/news/art...hp?storyid=8147 http://www2.nccommerce.com/eclipsfiles/18583.pdf http://www.lincolntimesnews.com/Default.asp?VA=17245
  2. Chili's...interesting. For those interested in seeing where that news came from, here is a link to the Belmont/Mt Holly Banner News. http://www.mybannernews.com/articles/2008/06/201.html
  3. Major development planned for Cramerton. See news articles here: http://www.charlotte.com/485/story/652780.html http://www.gastongazette.com/news/peoples_..._cramerton.html See the developers website here: http://www.hoppercommunities.com/ The proposed development would double the population of the town. It is a mixed use development covering 143 acres. The developer filed for annexation by Cramerton. The developer is expecting construction to begin in 5-6 months and build out in 5 years. My take on this is wait and see. There has been a similar development in the Town of Catawba, Catawba County, that was approved in late 2006/early 07 and there hasn't been a single shovel of dirt moved yet. Also, I find it strange that this development is part of Cramerton when it is closer to McAdenville. Anyhow, here is the site in GoogleMaps http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=35.253247,-...p;t=h&hl=en
  4. I'm assuming you are talking about the outparcel in the north-east corner of the BI-LO Center. Well I did the typical google and webgis digging. The current owner listed on the County GIS system has an address of 319 S Sharon Amity Rd STE 300. I googled that address and came up with Sree Hotels. I google Sree and found their website, here: http://www.sree.com/ This seems like an odd location for a hotel to me. It could be owner listed on the County GIS sold the property to whomever is developing it now. Are their any signs post advertising the construction firm or engineering firm?
  5. Bojangles is coming soon to Stanley, NC see franchise website here... http://www.bojangleskbo.com/locations.htm There are buildings being constructed next to the retaining wall where Max's used to be. McCallister's Deli has a sign up for the site. I like McCallister's alot, had one in Boone I ate at while in college. I haven't heard anything else about the development on New Hope with the high end retail. I did notice a new Food Lion on New Hope.
  6. Construction work has begun on the Gaston Mall property. Max's Mexican Eatery has been demolished and a large retaining wall has been constructed along Cox Rd. I'm not sure if somthing is being built in that corner or if it will be parking area. I haven't seen any site plans for this development, if anyone knows where I could view one online I'd appreciate a link. Is there an official name for this development/redevelopment yet?
  7. Does anyone know what is underconstruction in Stanley, NC on north/east side of HWY 27 just past (heading towards Mt. Holly) the new Stanley Market Place (Food Lion)? They are clearing land there and I have heard rumors about various resturants but nothing firm. My google searching did not return anything worthwhile either. I did discover that according to the Gaston County GIS the property is named as part of Stanley Market Place and is owned by Catawba Land & Development, LLC. I didn't find anything about this group. All the information on Stanley Market Place I found only relates to the newly constructed FoodLion and attached retail spaces.
  8. According to a post made by member DigitalSky in the Charlotte Coffee House, Gastonia will be getting some new "high end" retail off New Hope Rd. This project was mentioned above, but lacked details. I did a bit of google searching and came up with websites for the consulting firm and developer involved (see below). The development is proposed by Stanbery Development and Mason Retail Group. On stanbery's website they provide some information and you can download a very cool brochure. This is there website http://www.stanbery.com/index.asp?retail.d...pes-at-gastonia Mason Retail group has been in existance since 2000. They consult and represent small to large retail companies and landlords for shopping centers. Check out their website fo more information http://www.masonretailgroup.com/aboutmrg.html I'm glad to see some retail activity occuring somewhere other than Franklin Blvd/ Franklin Square area.
  9. Oh great now this thread is burried under all the threads that are directly related to Charlotte. I hope this thread doesn't die like the other Gastonia threads in the Charlotte section.
  10. I dont really see why you care. I think there could be a Section for Charlotte alone and a seperate Section similar to Triad or Triangle that covers the municipalities surrounding Charlotte including gastonia. I also think there should be a Section for the Unifour Counties around Hickory. But I'm not a mod/admin and neither are you so it doesnt really matter what we think does it?
  11. No, look at the section description for Charlotte. "Charlotte: Charlotte Skyscrapers, Mass Transit Plans, Highways, Construction Projects, Rumors" Doesn't say anything about Charlotte region, surrounding counties or municipalities. Also the issues concerning Charlotte are different than those that concern Gastonia. Thats why I started this thread under NC Forum. Also, if I'm not mistaken in order for a region/area/city to get its own Section it needs to have significant activity under the State forum first. At least that is how it worked for Statesboro, GA and how they got their own Section.
  12. No idea, whats going on?
  13. you were told correctly. there is an outparcel at northern end. it will be a seperate building.
  14. Mellow Mushroom plans submitted to City. I looked online for info on it, all I could find was stuff about the old one.
