Clearing of a forested area behind the Food Lion along U.S. 1 in Tramway has begun in order to make room for a 252 unit apartment complex to be known as Pine Reserve.

Plans on file with the Sanford-Lee County Planning Department show the proposed complex to include 10 buildings (three of which will be done in a first phase, with the remaining buildings to come in a second phase), and a swimming pool. Access to the 14.5 acre site will be from Center Church Road, as well as from the adjoining shopping center.

Lee County’s GIS map already shows the roads which will be cut through the site.
