Show Notes

This year, residents and officials have been focusing on the future of former industrial land along the Cape Fear and Northeast Cape Fear rivers.

On Point Peter, a jut of land across from downtown Wilmington, the partners in KJF Development Group hope to build tall towers with condos, apartments and commercial space, aiming to create an iconic project called Battleship Point. Their plans have met with opposition by some who fear environmental and cultural impacts.

Meanwhile, KFJ is pursuing a possible annexation by the town of Leland.

On Thursday’s BizTalk, KFJ partners James Lea III and Kirk Pugh discuss the status of the project and address some of the questions and concerns they’ve been hearing over the past several months.
