Construction on one shopping center on N.C. 211 is moving forward while another is still viable, Brunswick County Economic Development Director Jim Bradshaw said.

A planned shopping center at Midway Road and N.C. 211 is back on schedule with developers Wakefield and Associates of Raleigh building 90,000 square feet of leasable space.

A new 44,000-square-foot Lowes Foods store will anchor the development. The grocery store will also run a fueling station.

“The site will have pads for restaurants and fast food, and there will be opportunities of clothing stores and other retail shops,” Bradshaw said.

Bradshaw said he expects construction of the project to begin by the end of the year and anticipates completion in late 2014.

The site, which is near St. James Plantation, will be called 211 Midway Commons, Bradshaw said.

A shopping center at N.C. 211 and U.S. 17, which has been anticipated since last summer, is still a possibility.

Bradshaw said a grocery store chain has made a verbal agreement to build an anchor store—if a developer agrees to build the shopping center.
