Former Galleria shopping center site to see new apartments, retail

A rendering of the first phase of The Residences at The Galleria, a mixed-use development proposed for the former site of the Galleria shopping center on Wrightsville Avenue.

A long-awaited mixed-use development is moving forward on the site of the former Galleria shopping center near Wrightsville Beach.

Charlotte-based developer State Street Companies submitted plans for the project’s first phase to the city of Wilmington for review last month. The project would bring a five-story building with 366 apartments along with 5,000 square feet of retail space to the currently vacant site.

State Street Companies owns roughly 30 acres of land along Wrightsville Avenue. The company is behind a 12-acre neighborhood called Airlie at Wrightsville Sound — a project that ran up against strong opposition from neighbors as it went before the Wilmington Planning Commission and city council for the needed rezoning.
