Mixed-use project, uptown signs among rezoning petitions approved

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A number of rezoning petitions got Charlotte City Council’s seal of approval at Monday night’s zoning meeting.

Among them: a petition filed by Charlotte-based Levine Properties and Akridge, out of Washington, D.C., for an 8.5-acre site in Montford Park. The developers have plans that include renovation of an existing, 147,000-square-foot office building at 4701 Hedgemore Drive, as well as development of an additional 180,000 square feet of office, up to 250 apartments and a parking garage.

“This is an exciting mixed-use project that will transform the Park Road submarket by bringing a little bit of everything to the neighborhood,” said Daniel Levine, president of Levine Properties.

Also approved was Lincoln Harris’ petition to allow signage on the upcoming headquarters building for Honeywell International Inc., under construction now at the developer’s Legacy Union site in uptown. The 23-story tower is on South Mint Street and expected to finish construction later this year.
