44 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, November 8 - November 14, 1996 Shore Investments starts construction of building at former Food City complci By Michael Short The former Food City Shopping Center is getting a facelift with the addition of a new retail/office complex. Plans for the new building were approved on Thursday, Oct. 24 by the Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission during its regular meeting. Ted Jones of Shore Investments Inc. requested and received ap- proval for a site plan showing a new building to be located at one end of the parking lot, nearest the Golf Down Under Golf Course. Work on the foundation of the new building has already begun at the Rt. 1 site north of Rehoboth Beach, which features an existing parking lot. Jones, of Jones and Company, CPA, said that his current ac- counting office does not have enough room and needs to ex- pand. Jones and Company, PNC Bank, Ocean Wine and Spirits and Long and Foster Realtors are lo- cated in the shopping center. The former grocery store, which has housed both a Safeway and more recently, a Food City, has been vacant for several years. Jones did not say what other businesses could locate at the building Site. He could not be reached for additional details. There are two current entrances to the shopping center. The first is from the southbound side of Route 1. There is also a existing and long-standing intersection from Route 1 to the shopping cen- ter on the southbound side and the outlet mall complex on the north- bound side. That intersection also services George Bunting's insur- ance office and Sea Air Mobile City Mobile Home Park. The business is the first com- mercial project affected by a new corridor overlay zone adopted by Sussex County this year. That overlay zone is designed to pro- tect highway capacity and esthet- ics and requires landscaping, buffers, limits on entrance ways etc. Because this is an existing com- mercial property, some of the parking area will have to be re- moved in order to meet a new re- quirement in the corridor overlay zone for a 20-foot landscaped area. The commissioners were uncer- tain how to handle that require- ment, since the new regulation was not aimed at existing com- mercial properties. The ironic part of the regulation is that Sussex Accounting Lloyd's IGA Continued f-om page 43 "We appreciate our customers and their patronage and we see each other often," said Lloyd. "We figured we better celebrate our 25th anniversary here because we may retire before we get to our 30th or 35th." This commercial site near Rehoboth Beach on Route I is be- ing improved by the addition of a retail/office complex. County recently repaved the park- ing area following the installation of sewer lines for the West Re- hoboth Sewer District. In fact, the paved area is be- lieved to have been expanded slightly. Jones joked that he thought the county was doing him a favor at that time. When asked if a requirement to tear up some of the parking was a possible "dealbreaker," Jones said no. "We probably spend $15 mil- lion putting asphalt back on Rt. 1," said Assistant County Attor- ney Dennis Schrader. Jones could apply for a waiver for the landscaping requirement if he wishes.
