City Council approved the recommendation 7-1.    Check out page 9 of the agenda for some supporting documentation.  

This is a link to the Zoning Committee recommendation

This is a link to the staff analysis.

 

Conversation starts around 1:11 in the meeting.

 

I think this is really big news for the more established neighborhoods that are tired of seeing lots split and cleared under the tree save ordinance.

Good to hear!!

 

I'm just glad SOMEONE is reading!   This decision has some big time implications on the future redevelopment in existing neighborhoods in Charlotte IMO...unless I'm missing something.   The tree save ordinance hasn't been used a ton (something around 24 times since 2014), but I suspect that if the loophole remained that developers aware of the strategy would have only increased efforts to take advantage.   Glad the city council was fairly quick to act.

Does anyone have any info on if something is planned for a huge tract that has now been cleared on Wendover between the police station and the medical office complex? I think there may have been some old houses and such that faced the other direction previously but now it looks like they have a bunch of acreage oriented toward Wendover to develop?

Pretty sure that was old HUD/Section8 housing. I'd be shocked if it turns out to be anything other than stick built apartments.

They got grading plans only approved, so nothing in stone yet. Rezoning petition is active for mix of retail, office and storage.

There was a rumor that Target was possibly eyeing a location in the Cotswold area, particularly the parcel where the Randolph Park apartments are.

Target is currently in the midst of opening several new stores that are smaller than your typical Target store. Known as "flex-format", these smaller stores seemed to be aimed at downtown locations and college neighborhoods.

I bring this up because two flex-format stores were just announced for the Triangle. One near UNC Chapel Hill, and one near NC State. If a Target is still in the works for Cotswold, or even SouthPark, I would guess it would be done in this style of smaller box retail.

Can't wait for this Publix. Anything that will add to the parking in this area is welcome. And Personally if this allows me to avoid the Cotswold Shopping Ctr parking lot, it will be worth its weight in gold.

Publix construction started below grade and is now just cracking the surface with some rebar and concrete walls - hopefully it will come along quickly at this point. Seems to have been a long time coming!

Blog about Common Market's newest location in Oakhurst, with an interview w one of the owners, including a retrospective on the last two locations. Really nice piece.

Posting this here because: I don't want to create a new thread for Oakhurst, I'm not a fan of the name "MORA" (no hard feelings), and Common Market is blending the names Oakhurst and Cotswold into "Oakwold" for their newest location. KINDA WEIRD, but there ya go.
