The proposal for South Green was approved by the Carrboro Board of Aldermen in June 2015 and is expected to be completed between October 2018 and April 2019.
The owner, Woodhill NC, LLC, can’t continue construction on the site due to a project by the N.C. Department of Transportation, but is working to secure tenants for the shopping center.
“It doesn’t look like it, but we are pushing ahead getting leases signed,” said Gary Hill, a partner at South Green.
Hill said he hoped to announce the group of tenants that have already signed leases soon.
“The tenants that we have are local, they’re very established, and I think people will be excited about it,” he said.
South Green is planned to be 40,000 square feet of shops, with a shared free parking lot for customers of the shops.
A roundabout will also be added in front of the shopping center.
Board of Aldermen member Damon Seils said roundabouts are a way to address safety concerns.
