New Knightdale Commercial Development Emphasizing Village Feel at Knightdale Station Park

KNIGHTDALE, NC – On Saturday, February 18th, in addition to announcing the design of a new stage and veterans memorial in Knightdale Station Park at their Winter Retreat, the Knightdale Town Council announced plans for the development of a piece of property in Knightdale Station Park which will become a village style commercial development.

Plans presented by CLH Design, pa, a landscape architecture and civil engineering firm specializing in sustainable site design and natural learning environments showed that Knightdale Station Park is planned to have 7 new parcels between, and around a 20 ft. promenade and First Avenue. This is to make room for restaurants, local stores, and other shops that will make Knightdale Station a destination point for local residents and visitors alike.  Knightdale wants residents and visitors to be able to park in one of the 160+ additional parking spaces being added and be able to make a whole day of the visit, shopping, eating, playing and enjoying top tier entertainment in Knightdale Station Park. Construction should begin for these projects in the summer of 2017, with completion date to be determined.

With over 800 homes being built currently in and around Knightdale Station, Knightdale is a great place to “start something”.  Knightdale is one of the fastest growing towns in North Carolina.  Set 10 miles east of Raleigh, Knightdale has a population of 15,000, and with a median age of 34, Knightdale is a young, vibrant  and family oriented town.
