Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina wants 15.13 acres rezoned to allow for an expansion, according to documents filed with the city of Charlotte.
The non-profit organization wants a site plan amendment to allow for 207,000 square feet, which would include the expansion and other buildings on the site.
Second Harvest provides a regional distribution warehouse and branches that supply food and grocery items to charitable agencies that assist people in need. It serves 14 counties in the area.
The property is located on the southern side of Spratt Street, just south of Oliver Street. It is just north of uptown Charlotte.
The land is currently zoned for warehouse, distribution, office and accessory retail.
Kay Carter, executive director of Second Harvest Food Bank, confirmed the organization had filed the petition but did not want to comment further until they have established specific plans for the expansion.
