Developers who want to build on one of the largest lots of commercial land left in Carrboro are calling a community meeting to discuss the plan for the proposed Lloyd Farm project.

Argus Development Group wants to build a shopping center across from Carrboro Plaza at the corner of Highway 54 West and Old Fayetteville Road.

The 40 acre plot is currently occupied by farmland and trees. The developer is proposing to bring a Harris Teeter grocery store, as well as a bank, pharmacy, restaurant  and other retail to the edge of the property, while the interior of the site would include 293 apartments and 15 town homes.

Developers will meet with members of the public at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 10, in Carrboro Town Hall to discuss the plan. You can read more about the project here.
