Moyock Mega-Site

The Moyock Mega-Site, is a long-term economic development plan developed for the County to bring employment and commercial opportunities to Currituck over the next three decades. The Mega-Site consists of over 3,000 acres adjacent to the border with Virginia and located on the western side of North Carolina 168/Caratoke Highway in Moyock.

The proposal balances commercial uses such as retail stores, medical offices, and even locations for high-tech industrial businesses with a variety of residential areas.

By planning for and investing in this site, the County looks to attract quality businesses, employers and developers in order to create an area where Currituck citizens can live, work and play as our population changes. Moyock Mega-Site Master Plan Diagram of Area and Services

Moyock Mega-Site Market Feasibility Study

The Moyock Mega-Site Marketing Feasibility Study results was presented to the County July 2016.  The study was initiated to facilitate the assessment of the market a potential and feasibility for large scale, phased, mixed-use development located on a contiguous land area of approximately 3,000 acres in the Village of Moyock, Currituck County, North Carolina.

The County has decided to proactively get a better handle on potential economic development
opportunities that will allow them to capitalize on the increased market demand, specifically in Moyock, for
light industrial, office, multi-family residential, single family residential, and commercial/retail
developments that have risen over the recent past.

A challenge to taking advantage of these opportunities, is Moyock's lack of planned, "shovel ready"
development sites or existing buildings to satisfy potential demand. The local private development sector
has not yet effectively been able to deliver this product to the marketplace. In addition to being in a
position to better meet current demand, several regional, national, and international trends and events are
indicating increased demand and opportunity to grow the County's non-residential tax base.

With a site of this scale, the approach must be a long-term development strategy that will result in a
focused area of community and private investment that will foster a strong employment center capable of
meeting the County's existing and anticipated future demand. The findings from the market feasibility
study and related engineering and environmental due diligence is the first step to determining the best
approach for developing the Moyock Mega-Site over the next 30 years.
