PITTSBORO, N.C. — Eco Group, a joint venture between Kirk Bradley of Lee-Moore Capital Co. and John Fugo of Montgomery Carolina LLC, has broken ground on Mosaic, a $350 million mixed-use development spanning 136 acres and located 30 miles southwest of Raleigh-Durham. Phase I of Mosaic will include developing 44 acres at the cost of $180 million and is expected to be complete in 2023, although Eco Group plans to open Mosaic to the public in 2020. Town Hall Burger & Beer, People’s Coffee, Aveda Day Spa & Salon and UNC Urgent Care have all signed leases at Mosaic. At full build-out, the development will feature 200,000 square feet of local and regional retail space, restaurants and services including a micro-brewery and chef-driven and fast casual dining; a 114-key flagship hotel; 164 apartment units; 88,000 square feet of technical and creative office space; 10,000 square feet of educational space; 30,000 square feet of recreational and civic amenities featuring an eight-screen cinema, 350-seat live performance theatre, and 100-seat black box theatre and central green with outdoor stage. In addition, 25 percent of the project will be dedicated to open space framing the development with gathering spaces, walking and biking trail, ponds and constructed wetlands. The 350-acre development will serve as the commercial gateway to Chatham Park, a 7,100-acre community under development in Chatham County.
