At April’s zoning meeting, Charlotte City Council approved a transit-oriented development by DCC Parcel B Plus LLC on a 0.3-acre site at the intersection of West Worthington Ave. and Hawkins St. (The LLC is associated with Ram Realty Services in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.)
Mayor Pro Tem Vi Lyles noted the number of recent rezoning petitions in District 3, according to Charlotte Business Journal.
“This entire area has transformed, and I think that’s a testament to our Blue Line,” Lyles said.
She turned to council member Greg Phipps, who represents District 4. “Mr. Phipps, get ready — you are going to be busy next year,” Lyles said.
“(The light-rail system) is bringing us change,” she continued. “It’s going to build us a great city for the future.”
At the same meeting, council approved Johnson Development Associates Inc.’s request to rezone the Pfeiffer University site off Park Rd. for mixed-use development. The Spartanburg, S.C.-based developer has plans for up to 17,000 sq. ft. of retail, 360 multifamily units and a wrapped parking structure.
