SOUTH CHARLOTTE – It is Waverly. It is David Weekley Homes. And it is a Pappas family affair.
Giant Charlotte commercial developers Childress Klein Properties and Crosland Southeast have chosen Waverly as the name of their proposed $200 million mixed-use project on a former farm that is one of the biggest chunks of undeveloped land in the south Charlotte area, according to an announcement by the companies.
David Weekley Homes of Houston will build the 150 or so single-family and town homes planned for 18 acres of the development, which would be at Providence and Ardrey Kell roads just south of Interstate 485.
As for the family affair, Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners, a partnership that includes Peter A. Pappas – first cousin of Crosland Southeast partner Peter B. Pappas – will get to develop the 375 apartment complex, called Solis Waverly, scheduled to be on another 18 acres.
The master plan also calls for up to 250,000 square feet of retail, anchored by an “upscale grocery store;” 90,000 square feet of restaurant and retail surrounding a public plaza; four office and medical buildings; and parking decks.
But first, Providence Farms LLC – a company formed by Childress Klein and Crosland – must get a seal of approval from the Charlotte City Council on a rezoning for the land from two residential categories to two mixed-use ones.
The city of Charlotte will hold a community meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday to gather neighborhood input on the proposal at the nearby Providence Country Club clubhouse, 6001 Providence Club Drive.
An initial Charlotte City Council public hearing on the rezoning, originally scheduled for last month, will be at 6 p.m. Dec. 16 in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 E. Fourth St., Charlotte.
