A vacant shopping center on Anderson’s south side will soon be demolished to make way for a Lowe’s.

Site plans filed with Anderson County call for a complete demolition of Crossroads Plaza at S.C. 28 Bypass and Sayre Street. The two outparcels, an Arby’s and the former Water Wheel Ice Cream, will remain while the shopping center is replaced by a 124,000-square-foot Lowe’s with a 31,300-square-foot garden center.

The site plans also show a 4-acre outparcel replacing the left side of the shopping center and two 0.69-acre outparcels along S.C. 28 Bypass next to Arby’s.

Anderson County Planning Director Jeff Ricketson said the development should be on the Anderson County Planning Commission’s July 8 agenda as a large-scale project. The developers also are seeking a variance on parking requirements that would allow for 80 fewer parking spaces.

“I’m just happy to see something going on that site over there,” Ricketson said. “It’s been dead for a while.”

Crossroads Plaza is a 163,809-square-foot shopping center that opened in 1990. It was at one time anchored by Ingles and Wal-Mart, but today houses only three tenants — Credit Central, Anderson Barber Academy and Worth Mason Insurance.
