Mall with no access

SUNBURY, Ohio - The race is on to build a new outlet shopping mall near Sunbury in Delaware County.
One of two developers in the race is moving forward with the proposal.
Phil Karshner said he's called Berkshire Township home since 1967.
Today, he's watching and waiting for development to move in next door.
“Do I want it? I don't think it's a question of me wanting it, it's a question of when it is going to get here,” said Karshner.
Karsher is referring to the proposed outlet mall to be built just east of I-71 and south of US 36 – State Route 37.
Northgate Centre Development just submitted a request to the township to rezone 88 acres from agricultural to planned commercial.
With that application, the developer submitted a preliminary development plan, complete with sketches of the design of the mall and photos of buildings.
Currently, there is no way to access the property, but the developer says he plans to eventually extend Wilson Road south to Cheshire Road.
A spokesperson for Tanger Outlets and Simon Property Group told 10TV that the companies are moving forward with plans to put an outlet mall on the west side of I-71 south of US 36/SR 37.
The township’s administrator and zoning inspector, Jeff George, said the chances of seeing two malls so close to each other is rather slim.
“I can't speak for the developers all I can tell you is what I've heard, and what I've heard is that is difficult,” George said.
One mall or two, Phil Karshner said he's ready.
The Berskshire Township administrator said the township's zoning commission will hear Northgate's rezoning request at its April 4 meeting.
From there, the trustees will vote on the request.
If the trustees approve the right to rezone, it would then be put to a public vote.
