As a resident of Windrow off Idlewild Road, I was shocked to read that a developer has announced plans to build an outlet mall at the I-485/Idlewild interchange in the Stallings town limits.
I am relieved that both the mayors of Matthews and Mint Hill plan to protest the development. Who can possibly think that an outlet mall is needed in this area? Concord Mills is just a hop up I-485 and there is another proposed outlet mall in (Steele Creek). Idewild Road to the west of I-485 already carries more traffic than is safe for the number of subdivision entrances off of it.
