Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners has begun demolishing several buildings, including an 87-year-old Tudor, at the intersection of Morehead Street and Kenilworth Avenue to make way for 184 luxury apartments.
The company has broken ground on the 2.2-acre project called Solis Dilworth near Carolinas Medical Center, Little Sugar Creek Greenway and the shops and restaurants of the Metropolitan and East Boulevard.
The company said the location is consistent with its strategy “to create distinctive communities in highly desirable locations,” according to a news release.
“This is an incredible location for an apartment community in keeping with residents looking for a home that is both close to their workplace and all the things they like to do,” said Alan Dean, chief operating officer of Terwilliger Pappas, in the release.
Solis Dilworth’s architecture will reflect the locally common craftsman style. It will offer apartments with one, two or three bedrooms; a central courtyard with saltwater pool and cabana; lounge; game rooms; fitness center; and pet facilities.
Rule Joy Trammell and Rubio is providing architectural design; Cole Jenest Stone is providing landscape architecture; and Adolfson and Peterson is the general contractor.
Terwilliger Pappas is the third developer to start a project within the same two-block stretch of Dilworth. Crescent Communities began work on a 296-unit project in October, at the intersection of Morehead and Harding Place. Forestar began work earlier this year on an apartment project kitty-corner from the Terwilliger Pappas project.
