Project with ‘pedestrian village’ planned for Huntersville

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — A developer based in the northern area of Mecklenburg County is looking to lead a large mixed-use project in Huntersville.

Davidson-based Treenail Development is seeking to rezone a nearly 70-acre site off Hambright Road to allow for the development of a project called Town 1. The proposed project calls for a range of commercial and residential uses, including a pedestrian village with restaurants, retail and small office space, Class-A office building, light industrial buildings and several types of residential units.

At a meeting earlier this month, the Huntersville Board of Commissioners scheduled an initial public hearing for the rezoning request for April 3. The project would be developed at 11101 Hambright Road along Interstate 77, if it receives needed approvals.

“There’s an opportunity here to really set the tone for the west side of 77 and create a real entrance point for Huntersville as you come north from Charlotte,” Treenail Development’s Ben Geisler told the Charlotte Business Journal.
