CAROLINA BEACH, N.C., AUG. 23, 2021 — A partnership of longtime Cape Fear residents with a history of thoughtful, high-standard development seeks community and stakeholder input on plans for The Proximity – a beautiful mixed-use community with a blend of residential, retail and office, all of which will be in keeping with the coastal design and character of the surrounding neighborhood. The Proximity is planned for the long-vacant property located on Lake Park Boulevard and St. Joseph Street, adjacent to Publix Commons at Federal Point.

 

“My partners and I are excited to begin what we believe is the most important component of a high-quality project – engaging in productive dialogue with community members who have insights and ideas that will add value to our planning efforts,” said Brian Eckel, partner with GHK Cape Fear Development. “We are eager to collect feedback and work with the community to ensure that The Proximity is the best project it can be. We are grateful for the preliminary comments from the Technical Review Committee and Carolina Beach citizens, and we have made meaningful changes to improve the walkability and bike-pedestrian friendliness of the plan.”

 

As planned, The Proximity will be a true community asset, providing year-round housing options, connectivity, restaurants and retail, all while seamlessly fitting into the surrounding neighborhood. Unparalleled amenities will include a resort-style pool, pet grooming, clubhouse, fitness center, bike storage, golf cart charging stations, parks and greenspace. Additionally, the developer has a history of attracting top restaurant brands to its other developments and expects to do the same at The Proximity.

 

“This project provides a unique opportunity to enhance the lifestyle offerings in the community with a vibrant, walkable and bikeable neighborhood lined with top-notch restaurants, retail, amenities, parks and greenspace” continued Eckel. “This is an important piece of property for the Carolina Beach community, and we are committed to collaborating with neighbors and stakeholders to move forward together on a development that will make the community proud.”

 

Just as GHK Cape Fear Development worked closely with the community on the adjacent Publix Commons development, it is committed to working with neighbors every step of the way on this transformative project for the Carolina Beach community. GHK Cape Fear Development will be hosting a community Open House on the property on Aug. 26 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. to gather input from neighbors and answer questions about the initial project plan.
