Real estate roundup: A look at Charlotte’s newest residential projects

CHARLOTTE — A plethora of apartment projects are on the way in several communities surrounding Charlotte.

In Cornelius alone, three mixed-use developments — each with a multifamily component — received the green light from town leaders last month. That includes Sefton Park, which, among other uses, calls for 344 multifamily units between Sefton Park Road and West Catawba Avenue. That’s in addition to Greenway Gartens and Caroline, which are expected to bring a combined 650 residential units — nearly all apartments — to more than 40 acres at South Street and Zion Avenue.

Elsewhere in the region, construction of 275 apartments as part of the Farmington master-planned development near Harrisburg is gearing up, a pair of projects in Monroe are progressing and a redevelopment in Gastonia’s Franklin Urban Sports and Entertainment District is nearing the finish line.

Closer to Charlotte’s center city, a 308-unit multifamily building off West Morehead Street recently broke ground, and work is slated to begin this fall on a major mixed-use project in Plaza Midwood as well as a 272-unit apartment complex in the Steele Creek area.
