REZONING ROUNDUP: Developers seek multifamily rezonings

RezoningSignWEBCHARLOTTE – Several developers have filed rezoning requests with the city in order to build and redevelop multifamily complexes. The city will hold public hearings on the petitions May 18.

DPJ Residential is seeking to build 105 apartments on several parcels totaling 1.9 acres on Central Avenue between Nadina Street and Landis Avenue. According to the company’s site plans, the project would feature two buildings not exceeding four stories, along with surface parking. The property is currently vacant except for a two-story brick building.

DPJ Residential wants to rezone the property to conditional mixed-use development district with a site plan amendment from neighborhood business and conditional mixed-use development district.

In south Charlotte, Northwood Ravin plans to redevelop a 407-unit apartment complex. The company recently bought the development, already zoned conditional multifamily residential with up to 17 dwelling units per acre, from Camden Property Trust. The 36-acre site is on the west side of Providence Road between Cloister Drive and Knob Oak Lane.

Plans include up to 580 apartments and structured and surface parking in buildings that are one, two, three and five stories tall. The Pinehurst on Providence community, formerly dubbed Camden Pinehurst, was built in 1967. Northwood Ravin affiliate NR Pinehurst Property Owner LLC is seeking a rezoning to conditional multifamily residential with a site plan amendment and five-year vested rights. Vested rights allow projects to be completed in accordance with land-use plans and regulations in effect when the projects were proposed or approved, without regard to any subsequent changes in land-use regulations.

Further south on Providence, Providence Road Farms has requested a site-plan amendment to a portion of its $200 million, 84-acre Waverly mixed-use development near Interstate 485. The amendment relates to adding surface parking in lieu of parking decks and access points to the development from Providence Road and a proposed extension of Ardrey Kell Road.

The entire 90-acre Waverly development will include two five- to six-story class-A office buildings, about 375 upscale apartments that will be named Solis Waverly, 150 single-family homes, a 138-room hotel and a total of 250,000 square feet of retail space.

A 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods is scheduled to open mid-2016, anchoring the retail component of the development. Novant Health will anchor a 33,000-square-foot medical building that is under construction. Another medical office building is planned for the site, although no timeline has been announced.

Childress Klein is partnering with Crosland Southeast on the project. Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners will build the apartments and David Weekley Homes will build the single-family detached homes and townhouses.

Meanwhile, Wellmon Family LP filed a rezoning request to develop 9 acres with “transit supportive uses” at Jordan Place at North Davidson Street. The property is near the LYNX Blue Line Extension project, which will extend from Ninth Street in Center City through the North Davidson and University areas to UNC Charlotte. The line is slated to begin operating in 2017.

Wellmon has requested a rezoning to mixed-use transit-oriented development from general industrial. A warehouse is currently on the otherwise vacant 9 acres, which is bounded by North Brevard and North Davidson streets and Charles and Matheson avenues. Wellmon Family did not respond to calls for more information on the proposal, and a site plan has not been filed with the city.

Finally, Lat Purser & Associates wants to develop 4,700 square feet of retail space on the west side of Park Road south of East Woodlawn Road. A hair salon is currently at the site, which is less than a half mile from the Park Road Shopping Center and across from Montford Drive, which has become a popular nightlife destination with several bars and restaurants.

The developer says it has no specific plans for the site, other than leasing space to two or three tenants in a one-story building. However, the company says it has had interest from fast-casual restaurants for the site. Lat Purser & Associates wants to rezone the property to mixed-use development district from office district.
