A new shopping center is being planned near S. Houston Levee Road and Nonconnah Creek.
The Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved the rezoning of 95 acres to Shopping Center Commercial Monday night during their regularly scheduled meeting.
The property, which is north of Highway 385 and west of Houston Levee, is currently zoned Forest-Agricultural-Residential.
The project will be completed in two phases, with the first phase including 450,000 square feet of retail and a gas station. It is projected for completion in 2018.
The second phase could include two hotels and 196,000 square feet of retail. A bridge across Nonconnah Creek must be constructed before the phase is started.
Property to the west and north of the project will remain Forest-Agricultural-Residential.
Uses for Shopping Center Commercial include department stores, apparel and accessories, restaurants, furniture stores, offices, convenience stores and service stations.
Board members approved the rezoning on first reading. A public hearing will be held on Dec. 12, with third and final reading scheduled for Jan. 9.
The owner of the property is Jason Crews of Germantown.
