Just several months after the national electronics retailer Hhgregg announced the closing of all of its locations, a Charlotte developer has found a new use for the chain’s former 30,000-square-foot store at Lake Norman in Mooresville.

Altitude Trampoline Park would include trampolines, dodge ball and basketball courts, a “battle beam,” zip line, tumble track, party rooms and a parent lounge, according to documents filed with the Mooresville Planning Board by developer New South Properties of the Carolinas.

The building is in the Mooresville Crossing II (Best Buy) retail center at Morrison Plantation Parkway and N.C. 150, just west of Interstate 77 Exit 36.

The Planning Board is scheduled to consider a conditional zoning for the park at its July 13 meeting at Mooresville Town Hall, 413 N. Main St. The Mooresville Board of Commissioners, which has final say on rezonings, has set a public hearing and possible decision for Aug. 7.

The town’s zoning ordinance allows for indoor recreational uses at the site, but conditional zoning approval is required because the project exceeds 15,000 square feet. Planning staff recommends the project be approved.

In Charlotte, a similar use filled a former PetSmart on University City Boulevard. DefyGravity Trampoline Park opened in 2014.

Other such indoor recreational centers include Sky Zone Trampoline Park in The Centrum in Pineville and Sky High Sports on North Polk Street in Pineville.
