A Cary real estate brokerage firm has closed on what was the former Carolina Crossroads site off Wallace Fork Road.

Ellen Heaton of Heaton Real Estate said My Home Realty has not indicated what it plans to do with the 83.2 acres of land that at one time hosted a series of outdoor concerts.

There was no immediate answer when an attempt was made to contact one of the principals of the firm. The price was $700,000.

The deed was recorded this morning at the Halifax County Register of Deeds Office.

The site is outlined in blue in the gallery photo:

“I think it’s a great location for what it’s zoned for,” Heaton said this afternoon. “It’s behind the Roanoke Rapids Theatre. There’s a very high traffic count on I-95. I’m hopeful that we will see future development there.”

In December Roanoke Rapids City Council agreed to rezone the land back to B-4. That approval converted the land from an I-2 Industrial District to a B-4 Commercial Entertainment Overlay District.

The B-4 district is designed to accommodate the widest range of commercial activities while the Entertainment Overlay District is located over all B-4 commercial district properties in the designated Carolina Crossroads area.

Any proposed construction and site plans are evaluated by city staff and the city’s development review committee which includes the Roanoke Rapids Sanitary District, the North Carolina State Department of Transportation, the city’s public works department, Dominion Energy, and the city’s fire department and code enforcement.
