The redevelopment of Federal Point Shopping Center was approved in January, but the neighboring Harris Teeter development has fought against it in court

CAROLINA BEACH—The developer for the Harris Teeter store planned for Carolina Beach has once again slowed down the redevelopment of the Federal Point Shopping Center through litigation.

On May 29, Jubilee Carolina LLC filed an appeal of Judge R. Ken Harrell’s ruling.

On May 3, Harrell had upheld the conditional use permit granted for the redevelopment of the shopping center earlier in the year by the Carolina Beach Town Council.

Plans for the redevelopment of the Federal Point Shopping Center were submitted last year with the announcement of a new grocery store adjacent to the property owned by Harris Teeter.

Harris Teeter owned the adjacent property for more than a decade and had been planning to build a store, but never did. But in January when Carolina Beach Development Company 1 LLC requested a special use permit, Jubilee Carolina protested the approval without the requirement of connecting the properties with a common driveway.

Despite the protest from Harris Teeter, Town Council approved the permit for the mall.

A court date for the latest appeal has yet to be set.
