The record-breaking apartment boom in Charlotte is thriving—so much so that building plans for 1,250 new apartments throughout the city were just approved by the Charlotte City Council. You can expect developments to pop up in South End, Elizabeth, NoDa and more.
In South End, a 350-unit apartment building will be going up at the corner of South Tryon Street and Tremont Avenue. The building will include approximately 2500 square feet of retail and office space on the ground floor. Pollack Shores, the Atlanta-based developer of the project, considers the apartment building to be just the first phase of development, with future plans to develop the eastern portion of the site as a second phase.
In Elizabeth, controversial plans have been in the works for a while to construct on the Jackalope Jacks site at Seventh Street and Caswell Road. While the neighborhood originally opposed the plan, halving the number of apartments to 100 units and including approximately 30,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space lead to approval by the city council.
NoDa is also going to be home to more apartments. Adjacent to the 36th Street station on the light rail extension, you can expect a new apartment building that will include approximately 200 units and 5,000 square feet of retail space. And yet another fantastic 300-unit apartment building will be going up in the same location called Belle NoDa.
