Mint Hill residents gathered at the public library on Wednesday to hear a presentation by developers of a proposed shopping complex on Matthews-Mint Hill Road.
The property is a 56-acre lot, with only the front 15 acres being developed for use.
The proposed development is a community shopping center, with a large anchor grocery store and smaller retail outlets, enclosing a parking lot in the center.
Along Matthews-Mint Hill Road, the smaller retail spaces will be built alongside a small park, with walkways, seating, and vegetation.
The presentation was given by Scott MacLaren, senior vice president of real estate investments at Stiles Corporation, who presented details about the project, and Chris Isaacs, president of the Isaacs Group, who answered questions regarding zoning and town requirements.
