The Mooresville Planning Board on May 12 will consider a rezoning request for 4 acres that could lead to a hotel and other commercial development.
Langtree Lake LLC, the Charlotte applicant, is requesting the change from single-family residential to village center for the undeveloped land at Langtree and Alcove roads.
Langtree Lake’s rezoning application was signed by Jitendra “JD” Deva, who is founder and CEO of Maya Hotels.
Neither he nor vice president Parimal Thakor could be reached for comment.
The current zoning for the land just west of Interstate 77 doesn’t support a hotel use, according to a staff analysis.
If the rezoning is approved, the applicant must come back to the Town Board of Commissioners to seek a conditional use permit for the specific use, said Craig Culbertson, Mooresville’s senior planner.
The town’s Alcove Road Plan directs hospitality, commercial and retail uses toward exits 31 and 33 off I-77.
The Planning Board will make a recommendation to the town board, which will hear the request June 6.
Nearby, RL West is developing LangTree Lake Norman.
The first phase opened in October 2013 with the LangTree Apartments.
Shops and restaurants that were part of the first phase began opening their doors in January 2014. Included were women’s clothing boutiques, a brunch café, a nail salon, several restaurants, a wine bar and a real estate office.
Future phases include a mixed-use waterfront town center, lakefront custom home communities and a major retail destination center.
