Planners have approved the design direction for the North Shore Publix, but deferred their final decision as developers zeroed in on the final plans.

Though the large parking lot and traditional suburban design of the 46,000-square-foot store makes some residents unhappy, others have said they are overjoyed to finally have an affordable grocery store at which to shop.

Developers of the North Market Street store have added a tower structure, nonfunctional windows and screening to the original design in an effort to comply with the urban commercial zoning prevalent in the area.

Future meetings at the design panel will focus on improving the facade to appear more in line with the rest of the district.
