BK Partners LLC will hold two public meetings next week to discuss its redevelopment plans for the former Brooklyn neighborhood in Second Ward.
The meetings will be 6-8 p.m. Monday at the Mecklenburg County Land Use & Environmental Services Agency office at 2145 Suttle Ave., Charlotte, and 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Belmont Regional Center, 700 Parkwood Ave., Charlotte.
BK Partners was chosen in June by Mecklenburg County to redevelop 17 acres along South McDowell Street that includes Marshall Park, the vacant Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Board of Education building, and the Bob Walton Plaza. The development partnership includes The Conformity Corp. of Charlotte; the Peebles Corp., based in Miami; and Stantec, based in Edmonton, Canada. Design firms Perkins and Will and Cole Jenest & Stone are working with Stantec on design elements and project oversight.
At the meetings, the company will be seeking community input on the proposed project, called Brooklyn Village, which is plans to build over 10 years. Plans include building 1,070 apartments, including 107 units of workforce housing; 170 condominiums; 680,000 square feet of office space; 250,000 square feet of retail space; two hotels with a total of 280 rooms; and cultural, park and open space.
