Moore County is well known for its high quality of life and the many culinary, cultural, and shopping options that it offers. The area is also working to provide even more of these opportunities to its community members; Moore County has a number of commercial real estate development projects that are underway.

One such project is the 188 acre Morganton Park master development in Southern Pines. 

A major component of the project is Morganton Park North. The expected growth of Moore County was a large factor in selecting a site for this $5.2 million project, which will involve the development of a multi-story space. The pavilion will be home to high-end steakhouse CharBar No.7 as well as retail businesses and office space. Overseen by Koontz Design, the project was proposed and approved in the summer of 2014, and the annexation of the property was passed in June of this year. The pavilion will be a wonderful addition to Southern Pines, providing even more retail and dining options for those in the area.

Southern Pines will also see new developments at Morganton Park South, located just across the street from the Morganton Park North pavilion. The plan, approved by the town council in 2013, includes a 50,000-square-foot space for a Lowes Foods, an 8,000-square-foot retail space, and two outparcel buildings. One of the proposed occupants is an IMAX theater. The developers hope to finish the project in mid-2016.

Pinecroft Shopping Center is yet another recent development project in Moore County. Located in Taylortown, the shopping center will host both a 76,000-square-foot Harris Teeter as well as multiple retail buildings, outparcels, and over 400 parking spaces. Construction began in 2014 and aims to be finished this fall, and it will be carried out by Argus Development Group. The growing economy and demand in the area were factors in this project, as well.

From fine dining to entertainment to shopping to cultural events, Moore County has it all—and even more is on the way! Whether you live in the area or are just visiting, make sure to check out all that this micropolitan community has to offer.
