Potential Development Projects To Be Subjects Of Upcoming Meetings

Commercial development projects that could be on the way to New Hanover County are the subjects of upcoming community meetings this month.

Trey McGirt, whose family owns Monkey Junction Self Storage, is holding a meeting at 6:30 p.m. April 25 at the Monkey Junction Self Storage office at 5044 Carolina Beach Road regarding a potential artists’ consignment, crafts and gifts store on property at 5119 and 5123 Carolina Beach Road.

McGirt and his father are the developers on the project, McGirt said Monday. The parcels where the store would be built are next to the Wal-Mart on Carolina Beach Road.

“It’s an available location that’s suited for these styles of businesses, with the size of the property and dimensions,” McGirt said.

He said the new development wouldn’t have a big impact on traffic in an area that’s already home to commercial activity. McGirt said he sees the new store as being kind of a mix between Blue Moon Gift Shops on Racine Drive and The Ivy Cottage stores on Market Street.

The project would need conditional zoning district approval from the county to move forward, McGirt said in a letter to adjacent property owners. McGirt said the new development would be of the same quality as other facilities his family has built in the area.

Also on Carolina Beach Road, Stones By Earth Inc., a family-owned provider of upscale design and landscape materials for outdoor living spaces, has proposed a new development. The property involved is at 4822 Carolina Beach Road.
A community meeting for the Stones by Earth project is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. April 24 at the Best Western Plus, 5600 Carolina Beach Road. This development would also require a conditional zoning district (CZD) approval from the county, according to Cindee Wolf of Design Solutions, who is representing Stones by Earth in the CZD request.
Another client of Wolf’s is interested in developing property at 3400 and 3404 Castle Hayne Road and 109 and 111 Gladiolus Road for RV and boat trailer storage. A community meeting required for that project’s CZD request is set for 6:30 p.m. April 26 at the Castle Hayne Fire Station No. 13, 5311 Castle Hayne Road.
“The project will be accessed from Castle Hayne Road and fully screened and buffered from adjacent residential properties to meet all Ordinance requirements,” Wolf wrote in a letter to adjacent property owners.
Wolf will be conducting another community meeting involving a CZD request for a new office for SouthBay Roofing at 5301 Castle Hayne Road at 5:30 p.m. April 26 at the same fire station.
“Since our previous information meeting in December, the property owners at 5233 Castle Hayne Road decided not to participate in the rezoning request. However, SouthBay Roofing would still like to pursue building their new office at 5301 Castle Hayne Road, and the Volunteer Fire Department has decided to include their parcels in the petition,” Wolf wrote. “The proposal will still require a Conditional Zoning District approval from New Hanover County. Nothing has changed in the original layout for SouthBay, and there are no changes proposed for the vacant lot at 5307 or the existing fire station at 5311.”
