Nearby to Troutman in south Statesville is the Larkin community.  This is the old Fox Den country club now named Larkin and plenty of building going on.  New homes are being built here less than $120 a square foot much cheaper than in Charlotte or even cheaper than Mooresville.  With work from home and work flexibility you will see more growth 30-40 miles out from Charlotte.  And this is an example of it.  Plus quite a few jobs 10 miles south in Mooresville from this neighborhood and a few miles north in manufacturing hub of Statesville.  Our entire region is growing far from the city limits of Charlotte.

This is great news for Mooresville, IMO it has crazy opportunity to grow in the next 5 years. Unfortunately, I do not feel as though the town has done enough to win business. We continue to see Concord, Kannapolis, Ballantyne, etc to flourish, but a lack in the immediate LKN area.

Lots of new development and historical preservation going on in Iredell County.

first in Mooresville the old Burlington Mill continues to attract tenants.  (many of the office tenants are suppliers to nearby Lowes)

City of Statesville starts to work on renovating a 100 year old hotel in downtown.   (Hmm wonder if Charlotte has any old hotels in need of renovation maybe on N Tryon)

I think downtown Mooresville is very vibrant with restaurants and small shops.  Only missing link is housing and that is coming.  It is a great small town downtown.  (and those on the other side of 77 the lake side have discovered it)

Photos from the now booming SE corner of Catawba County Sherrills Ford right over the bridge from Mooresville and Iredell counties. 

New apartments, new Publix anchored shopping center and lots of new home construction nearby.  This is becoming suburb of Mooresville and even of northern Meck towns or Charlotte via NC 16 or NC 150.
