Crescent Communities is planning a major project in Huntersville that could add more than 400 single-family homes at Ervin Cook and Gilead roads.
The 233-acre property, at the northeast corner of the intersection, is largely vacant. Crescent has filed a conditional rezoning request with the town for the master-planned subdivision.
Brian Richards, who works in the town’s planning department as geographic information system administrator, said plans are in the very early stages. He said Crescent so far has proposed building 415 homes and a clubhouse at the site.
Neither Richards nor Crescent were able to provide further details on the size of the homes or the project’s proposed density.
A community meeting on the rezoning request will be held at 6 p.m. June 22 at Lake Forest Church at 8519 Gilead Road. The Huntersville Planning Department will make a recommendation to the town council in late August on whether or not the council should approve the rezoning.
The property is currently zoned as a transitional district, which Crescent is seeking to change to neighborhood residential with conditional uses.
Crescent, which has several projects in the Charlotte area, announced this spring that it was partnering with Lincoln Harris on a mixed-use project on 1,300 acres west of Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The developers filed a rezoning petition with the city a few months ago to build up to 4,000 single-family homes and apartments, 8 million square feet of office space, and 500,000 square feet of retail on the largely vacant land abutting the Catawba River.
A public hearing on the project, dubbed the River District, will likely take place by early fall.
