What is the future of the Federal Point Shopping Center in Carolina Beach?


CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Plans for redevelopment of the old Federal Point Shopping Center off North Lake Park Blvd. in Carolina Beach were recently submitted to the town.

One property owner, Ben Wells, says the proposal calls for demolishing the shopping center, which includes businesses like Maxway, Carolina Beach Scuba, Primrose Cottage, along with the old movie theater, to give everything a “fresh look.”

The plans say that the new building will be a grocery store along with space for other commercial leasing. The name of the grocery store chain that will occupy the building has not been given yet.

The proposed plans will be approved or denied at a meeting in January.

The town approved a permit for Harris Teeter to be built on the island as well, but construction was delayed until 2018.
