New development attracts Starbucks, Kay Jewelers
BY HALEY JONES
The old Golden Corral restaurant site at 141 Turnersburg Highway is blocked off and site work is underway for the proposed Fourth Creek Crossing development.
The site plan calls for three separate buildings totaling 12,672 square feet. The largest of the three will be divided into four sections with three retail spaces and one restaurant space with a drive-thru. The “center” building will accommodate a restaurant with a drive-thru. The final building will be dedicated to retail space.
This week, documents submitted to the Statesville Planning Department and Iredell County indicate that two of those spots will be occupied by Starbucks and Kay Jewelers. Two weeks ago, the popular jewelry retail store submitted interior layout plans to the City of Statesville and Iredell County. The coffee chain has only submitted signage plans at this point.
The City Council approved plans for the retail/restaurant development in July.
There will be 90 parking spots and the location will be accessible from U.S. Highway 21, Pump Station Road and through the Cookout/Zaxby’s connector road. A landscaped buffer will be in place between the road and the developed area. A sidewalk will be provided along Turnersburg Highway and Pump Station Road.
Meeting the architectural requirements of the city, the construction of the exterior walls will include modular brick veneer. The design will sport two fronts, one facing the road and one towards the interior parking lot, which will also be the main entrance.
The Golden Corral building was demolished in January.
Rosewood Holdings sold the property to Panhandle Ventures for $1,615,000 in November. Panhandle Ventures, formed in November 2016, is owned by Henry and David Atkins of Atkins Properties in Charlotte.
