After two years of restaurants and retail spaces filing in on the other side of Jones Sausage Road, the northwest corner of White Oak is nearing capacity and the handful of open spots appear to be going fast. Chipotle is nearing completion, expected to open in the far right side of the four-tenant building at the corner of Jones Sausage and U.S. 70 some time in March. Permitting is in the works for Famous Toastery, which is expected to open in the far left side of the same space in the next few months.
Core Properties have submitted a Conditional Use Site Plan for the northwest corner of White Oak. The section and behind Panera and Sheetz, it is the largest and final section of that corner. All that is known from information posted by the town is that it is for a restaurant. The restaurant must be rather large in size if it will take the remaining 6.61 acres.
A similar plan for a 6,000-square-foot building is in the works for a portion of the largest undeveloped parcel in the quadrant, the 6.61-acre tract to the north of Panera Bread and Sheetz. A mix of uses appear to be in store for the entire parcel.
“It will be more of a retail layout with some possibility for an anchor or mini anchors and shop space,” Barta said. “Possibly a restaurant, but that’s to be determined. We have a fair amount of restaurants there and they are thriving, and we’re not opposed to more restaurants there, but were going to add some significant non-restaurant pieces to the White Oak area.”
Plans call for a single building, about 5,800 square feet and likely split for two tenants, on the one-acre lot to the west of Zaxby’s.
White Oak has changed in the last 15 years and some may be surprised at how impressive it looks from above. The next 2-5 years could see changes just as impressive if rumors of future development come true.
