Urban development to be built in suburban Cary

February 7, 2018 by  

Plans for large development project featuring a mix of businesses, two hotels, high-end residential units, and retail establishments in Cary recently made progress as the Town Council rezoned 92 acres of land on which the project would be located.

The name of the development would be Fenton, in honor of the founder of the town, Samuel Fenton Cary.

The developer of the project, Columbia Development, commented that this would help in making the area have a more urban vibe, and would bring many cosmopolitan amenities this part of suburban Cary.

Partner and director of leasing at Columbia, Roh Pfohl, added that the plan would have a more urban setting, with markets, restaurants, and other places for people to gather in walkable spaces as opposed to the more typical suburban, single-use offices.

The entire project would take up 2.5 million square feet, with over 900 luxury residences, 1.2 million square feet of high-quality office space, 400,000 square feet of specialty retail, and two boutique hotels.

Wegmans would be the anchor store in the development and Columbia hopes to bring in some online retailers which also have brick and mortar stores such as Amazon, Google, and Bonobos.

Banner printing companies could be used in situations such as this one to create banners at the site so those in the community are informed of the progress of such a project.
