Big Carrboro projects go before board

Posted by on Thu, Aug 28, 2008 at 2:32 PM

O little town of Carrboro, how high will we see thee rise? The Carrboro Citizen reports the town's Board of Aldermen approved a five-story condominium project Tuesday night, while deciding to continue the conversation on next-door property 300 East Main, which the paper calls "one of the largest redevelopment projects in Carrboro history." The proposed redevelopment of the well-worn strip mall that currently houses the ArtsCenter and Cat's Cradle would create a new home for those venues and add a Hilton and a five- (or maybe six-?) story parking deck. The Daily Tar Heel's story includes a rendering of the proposed development. The Chapel Hill Herald also has this report (registration required). (For a much more detailed look at the proposal, check out this large PDF from the town's site.)

The long debate about the future of the former mill village--how high to build in a town that loves being small, how many cars to accommodate in a community that's proud to be walkable--seems to be coming to a head.
