A Taco Bell is coming to Steele Creek as part of a new development planned for two more businesses.
The 13115 York Road property is located between N.C. 49, Steelecroft Parkway and Old Steele Creek Road between Randazzos’ Grid Iron and CMC-Steele Creek. Construction is underway on the 3.5-acre site, where a sign advertises for a coming Taco Bell. A site plan shows two more business locations and parking.
“It will not open until December, so at this time we have no estimates on how many hires will be made,” said Johanna Albertsson, Taco Bell company spokesperson. “This Taco Bell will have a newer construction than the previous model.”
The site will have up to 40,000 square feet of commercial space. The site plan approved a year ago also includes several traffic upgrades including left turn lanes and a signal at 49 and Steelecroft. There is not a traffic signal there now, but there is one just west of the intersection at 49 and Grandiflora Drive.
Efforts to obtain comment by press time Friday from the developer were unsuccessful.
