Charlotte, N.C. — Horizon Development Properties Inc. (HDP) has selected The Fallon Co. to serve as the master developer for the redevelopment of the 16.2-acre Strawn Cottages site in Charlotte.
Once completed, the new $330 million mixed-use development will feature 725 new mixed-income apartments, with 145 of the apartments deemed affordable; 20 units of for-sale townhomes; approximately 57,000 square feet of retail space; approximately 330,000 square feet of office space; a hotel featuring 180 rooms; and a central green space.
“HDP is excited about The Fallon Co.’s vision that will create an ‘inclusive housing strategy’ within a dynamic mixed-use community,” says A. Fulton Meachem Jr., chief executive officer of HDP. “The Fallon Co. will ensure that HDP’s goal of providing 20 percent of the new rental apartments affordable to families earning between 65 to 80 percent of the area median income becomes a reality. Our model is an essential smart growth strategy that can be duplicated all over our great city.”
Situated immediately adjacent to South End in the Dilworth neighborhood, the site is one of the largest fully entitled, transit-oriented development sites in the region. The redevelopment will be conducted in multiple phases, the first of which will consist of 160 mixed-income apartments (20 percent affordable) and the hotel. Groundbreaking for site infrastructure is expected in late 2017.
