Large Multi Use Real Estate Project Planned for South Charlotte
A 90-acre former farm in south Charlotte is the proposed site for a real estate development to include homes, stores, medical facilities and restaurants. It is a large, wooded area across Providence Road from Rea Village Shopping Center and Providence Country Club. To the north of the site is Interstate 485, about half a mile away.
This land may well represent one of the most desirable, undeveloped tracts in the affluent south Charlotte corridor. As many as 180 single-family homes and town houses and 375 upscale apartments are expected. An upscale grocery store would anchor as much as 250,000 square feet of retail space. Another 90,000 square feet is planned as restaurant and shop space.
Two office buildings, as tall as six stories each, are planned, as are two medical office buildings totaling 60,000 square feet. Parking decks are planned, as well. No potential tenants have been announced, but developers said a pediatric clinic might be among them.
The project is not a done deal. The developers needed to file a rezoning request and have already submitted it. A hearing is set for October. A final City Council vote isn’t likely until next year.
