The Oak Ridge Municipal Planning Commission will consider a rezoning request for Main Street Oak Ridge during a Thursday meeting.
The Planning Commission will also consider a planned unit development, or PUD, master plan for the project.
Main Street Oak Ridge is the redevelopment of the former Oak Ridge Mall, now officially known as the Oak Ridge City Center.
The Thursday meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. in the Oak Ridge Municipal Building Courtroom.
The roughly 60-acre redevelopment has been proposed by Crosland Southeast of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Main Street Oak Ridge is a mixed-use project that could include retailers, residential units, restaurants, and a hotel. The mall’s two remaining anchor stores, Belk and JCPenney, would remain, but the existing space between anchor stores would be demolished.
Main Street Oak Ridge would include a total of about 325,000 square feet of retail space.
“We are within striking distance of getting the project into development,” Crosland Southeast partner James Downs said during a presentation in Oak Ridge on Monday. “It appears like everything is moving in the right direction…We are on track and on schedule.”
Crosland Southeast aims to close on the property in June and have a grand opening in the fall of 2016.
