New development and conservation are typically not used in the same sentence, but amidst all of the razing of trees and packing apartments into already crowded road corridors, one development is hoping to limit its carbon footprint in Wilmington.
Plans have been submitted to the City of Wilmington’s Planning Commission for a special-use permit that will allow the development of a 75-foot tall office structure in a planned mixed-use development.
The project is being brought forward by Cape Fear Solar Systems and would be located at the currently vacant property at 901 South Front Street.
“The proposed project includes a multi-phased solar system design and installation company containing a 5-story, 75-foot office structure and a 14,994 sqft warehouse where solar system kits will be stored and placed on trailers for deliveries. Additional phases will include a net-zero exhibition home, solar-powered car charging stations, and multi-family residential buildings,” according to the application.
