The Cornelius Board of Commissioners on Monday unanimously approved Bluestream Partners’ request to add 103 single-family homes to its planned Bailey’s Glen II age-restricted subdivision.
The board early last year approved Bluestream’s petition to build 72 homes on 57 acres near the existing Bailey’s Glen subdivision. But Bluestream sought to expand that project to include a total of 175 detached homes on 109 acres.
The town’s planning staff recommended approving the rezoning amendment. Last night’s vote came with certain conditions on the project’s buffers, landscaping and connectivity, said planner Will Washam. He said the planning department is still working out the final details.
Last year the town rezoned the vacant 57-acre property from rural preservation to rural preservation conditional, which is required by the town for all subdivisions with more than 30 lots within the rural preservation zoning district.
The homes at Bailey’s Glen II will range in size from 2,100 to 3,300 square feet and will be priced from the mid $300,000s to $600,000, according to Lori Lee, sales associate at Bailey’s Glen.
