New mall making ground

A new shopping mall for Wilmington is off the ground. Construction crews have cleared several dozen acres of land off Military Cutoff Road. Bricks and mortar are being laid for what will become the Mayfaire Town Center.

The town center hopes to become a destination for upscale retail and restaurants. Plans include a traditional "main street" running through the development with the storefronts facing sidewalks and public squares.

More specific details about the center and its retail stores are expected as early as next week.
