Oct. 14. By Dave Vieser. Although the restaurant owners won’t comment, it looks like plans for a convenience store are moving ahead for the Acropolis property at the northwest corner of Catawba Avenue and Holiday Lane.
QT—short for Quick Trip—wants to build a 5,700 square-foot convenience store facing the intersection at a 45 degree angle. The fuel pump islands will be on the Burton Lane side of the property. The current configuration calls for a total of 10 pumps in five rows, two per row.
The nearby Highway 21/Catawba intersection may be changed to a traffic circle or roundabout in the future; QT’s proposal takes that into consideration. Under consideration are multiple roundabouts on either side of I-77 and no left turns, according to a property owner who has attended preliminary meetings.
Mecklenburg County tax records list the current and only owner to be Acropolis Enterprises LLC, with the same address as the restaurant. Current annual property taxes on the restaurant are $19,038.Calls for comment from the current owners were not returned.
