ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Vacant land along I-581 could eventually be the site of a new development.
A North Carolina-based developer has filed an application to rezone more than 90 acres from residential to mixed-use and commercial.
According to paperwork filed with the City of Roanoke, the developer plans on building a golf-related entertainment facility, a retail center anchored by a grocery store, an apartment with up to 300 units as well as office space.
If approved, construction could take up to two years to complete and could create up to 600 short term construction jobs and up to 1,000 permanent jobs.
Developers also expect the project to generate annual sales revenue in upwards of $260 million.
