Hillsborough Street - NCSU Area developments

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what’s happening on the north side of Hillsborough St between Montgomery and Furches? I’ve seen information about the plans across the street where the old Smoker Friendly was but no info about the north side of the street. The three old brick homes there are still standing but all the foliage around them has been removed and by the looks of it the houses are coming down soon.

There was a plan by FMW (who is the developer of several of the apartment complexes along Hillsborough) that was approved in 2016 if I recall correctly.

Any idea what will happen to those homes?  They do look nice, and it would be a shame to lose them.

I thought it was a hotel but they may have been pulled for apartments instead. 

Yeah those homes are excellent and I would consider them historic with the biggest looking like it was built in the mid to late teens and the other two in the 20's. In Oakwood they'd be considered treasures.

Thanks for sharing. You can tell that they are pretty neat homes but they do look pretty beat. 

Will be interesting to see what happens with them.

Hello, anyone know what's happening with the three historic homes facing Hillsborough near Snoopy's? Looks like they've cleared the lots around them, maybe they were abandoned previously? Any links, news, or info would be of interest. Thanks in advance!

A Charlotte-based developer, Jim Zanoni / FMW Real Estate - the company behind LiveOnHillsborough (1301, 2604, 2811 Hillsborough; 103, 109 Park, 104 Ashe), as well as 927 West Morgan, owns those lots. When they bought these properties, they picked it up from another developer who tried (and failed) to rezone it for five stories. At the time they stated that they planned to tear the houses down, and develop the properties with three separate apartment buildings, within the existing (3-story) zoning. One building on each lot. The addresses are 3402, 3410, and 3412 Hillsborough.

This was around 2016. Their plans may have changed since then. At any rate, they have filed for neither rezoning, site plan, nor construction permits of any kind, so I'm not really sure what's going on now.
