There is a lot of dirt being moved around and added to the 2.5 acres in the southeast quadrant where Heritage Branch Road meets Rogers Road, but do not expect to see a new building any time soon, Jennifer Currin, the development services manager in the new Development Services Department made up of the former planning and engineering departments, said this week.
The Heritage Branch office and retail building is being developed by R E D P LLC, a new limited liability company owned by Wake Forest resident Robert James Shaar. The company purchased the two parcels in February from Andy and Jan Ammons and James Jr. and Dubba Lucas for $850,000, according to Wake County property records.
“Due to the proposed building square footage at this time, the building design will require major design review board approval and no elevations/architecturals have been submitted to date,” Currin said. “Therefore, no building permit has been released for this site. They only have approval for site work in accordance with their land disturbance permit and construction drawings.”

Currin also said the Dudley property at 1047 North Main Street may be on the agenda for the Wake Forest Planning Board’s October meeting, Oct. 3. The applicant, David Williams Jr. with 11 Investment LLC, has requested the 4.5 acres be rezoned from the county’s rural holding district to residential mixed-use conditional district (RMX-CD). His request is still under review in the Development Services Department.
