GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A huge retail area might be coming to West Wendover Avenue and Sapp Road in Greensboro. It will be located on the northeast corner of the intersection across from the Animal Hospital.

The plans include at least one retail store, a fitness center and a restaurant. Developers aren't revealing the tenants yet.

The local Department of Transportation recently conducted a traffic study in the area to determine what, if any, changes would be required.

The area already sees about 5,000 vehicles a day, so to prepare for even more, the developer would add turn lanes at several nearby intersections. "It uses a lot of existing infrastructure already in place and it just adds to that through some additional access points and turn lanes," said local DOT manager Chris Spencer.

The area must still be rezoned before construction can begin. The zoning commission will hear the issue later this month. If all goes as planned, the project will begin next year.
