Planning Board to review Royal Bliss project

Feb. 12. The Cornelius Planning Board will consider the Royal Bliss Brewery Project at tonight’s meeting. If they recommend approval, the proposal will then be sent back to the Town Board for a final public hearing.

Plans call for construction of a 11,800 square foot building on a vacant 2.98 acre plot owned by Griffin Brothers Acquisitions LLC located behind the Griffin Building on West Catawba Avenue. The project would include a full service restaurant as well as a beer garden.


The site is currently zoned village center, but Royal Bliss officials have filed for conditional zoning.

“This property doesn’t fit into our needs as currently zoned, most specifically due to the Duke Power high tension lines which run overhead,” said Larry Griffin Jr. “Conditional Zoning will permit us to locate our entrance and parking in the desired sections of the site.”

If the proposal is approved by the Planning and Town Board, Griffin says they hope to open sometime in 2025. Royal Bliss already operates a brewery in Denver.

The lot where the brewery is planned has an assessed tax value of $850,600 according to the Mecklenburg County Assessors Office.


The Planning Board meeting begins at 6:30 tonight at Town Hall on Catawba Avenue. It is open to the public, and will also be live streamed on the town web site: www.Cornelius.org.
