ROLESVILLE — A Publix supermarket will be the center of the 78-acre Wallbrook mixed-use development in downtown Rolesville, according to developer Crosland Southeast.

“This is wonderful news for the town of Rolesville and is an affirmation that Rolesville continues to be an attractive place to live or start a business,” said Mical McFarland, community and economic development manager.

He added that Wallbrook is exactly what the town thought of when it developed its Main Street Vision Plan in 2018.

The 47,000-square-foot grocery store will begin construction in mid-2022, Crosland said in a press release. Two outparcels and 20,000 square feet of retail space will also begin construction at the same time.

Future phases include retail, medical office space and 140 townhouses. Crosland hopes that phase will be anchored around a brewery. 

“Rolesville is one of the fastest-growing communities in North Carolina, and we’re thrilled to have Publix join our vision to bring much-needed retail and services to Main Street,” said Austin Williams, a partner at Crosland.

The developer will continue to try to bring local and national businesses to Wallbrook, Williams said.

Wallbrook is being developed jointly between Crosland and Harbour Retail Partners.

Randy Kelley, a partner at Harbour Retail, added the developer was glad to bring Publix to the Main Street corridor.

“Our hope is to curate the perfect mix of uses with particular attention to common areas, architecture and landscape, offering the residents of Rolesville a sense of place with pedestrian connectivity across the entire project,” Kelly said.

Crosland is also partnering with the town on a Main Street improvement project.

“The town is excited to be working with Crosland Southeast on the Main Street roadway improvement project and to make Wallbrook the eye-catching, successful mixed-use development we know it will be,” said McFarland.

The improvement project will realign Burlington Mills Road, improve walkability and beautify Main Street between Jonesville Road and Young Street. Wallbrook is funding around $3 million of the $9 million project with $4.8 million coming from Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization grants.

Those improvements should also begin in 2022.
