The yadkin-peedee river lakes supply water for most of the piedmont between raleigh and Charlotte. The crazy thing is that they made the lakes for power for alcoa aluminum production in the town of badin in stanley county exclusively but they're so important to the region now.

Pineville is getting a new 1 Million sq ft plus Amazon warehouse is a new business park from Beacon Development. 

From the Ledger ""1 million s.f. for Amazon in Pineville: Amazon has signed a lease for Beacon Partner’s Carolina Logistics Park in Pineville. According to the lease memorandum filed with the register of deeds and reviewed by The Ledger, Amazon will occupy 1,006,462 s.f. The lease, signed on Feb. 27, runs for 12 years with up to four 5-year extensions. The amount of rent is not listed in the public records.

2.3   Locke Mill converted to apartments and some office space.

4.5.   the old Cabarrus Creamery now an office building.

Belmont or just south of it might get a 800 home age restricted community by Del Webb.   The great thing about these communities they do not put pressure on school systems and most don't commute on a regular schedule.  After the growth of 20 somethings people over 60 is the other fast growing group in this region.

PulteGroup seeks rezoning for major mixed-use development in Belmont - Charlotte Business Journal (bizjournals.com)

""On Thursday, the Belmont Planning and Zoning Board will consider a rezoning request for a 462-acre site along the South Fork Catawba River. The request is being made by PulteGroup, a homebuilder that is planning a major, long-term project there. The project calls for 809 age-restricted single-family homes and the potential for 130,000 square feet of commercial development, according to city records.""

Oversaturation of homes, and not enough infrastructure to support it.  Traffic in this part of the county is getting exponentially worse by the day - and that is even during the pandemic.

Belmont City Council is rubber stamping anything that is put in front of them.  They are choosing to show they have no regard for the long term impacts.  Apartments, condos and garden homes by the thousands will not sustain the tax base long term.  They really need to be looking at luring businesses in to help sustain.  Getting to I85 will take 45 minutes at some point in the not so distant future.  They just don't care.  Frustrating to say the least.

Drove by the site of the Carolina Logistics Park on the Downs Rd side and if you need a tower crane 2 companies on Downs Rd alone!  Plus a few of downtown Pineville and their new Police station.  Today.   Downtown Pineville 100% occupancy on the storefronts!

Just a quick correction, the police station has been there for a minute. The town is building a new town hall and library with open civic space next to it on all the unused front "yard" of the police station.

Thanks for all the great photos KJHburg! Pineville definitely is a little gem.

I was on Downs road and I believe the Heede crane company has their office and main yard on Downs and another storage yard further south on Downs, same side of the road. Same company if I recall, different equipment and storage purposes.

If I am not mistaken, there are around 4 retail spaces in the new Vida apartment complex that will be filled hopefully very soon!

Town of Belmont's Chronicle Mill renovations finally starts.  240 apartments downtown and 9000 sq ft of commercial space.  This is an Armada Hoffler project the same company doing the uptown Charlotte Publix project on N Tryon.

wonder if this is a complete relocation?  they are based in Long Island and that is one expensive place to be.    The press release says relocates its manufacturing so maybe a complete move here.

Let's see what happens.....of course with your numerous sources, @KJHburg you might know before the officials in Stanly County do! :)

My gut tells me this is complete relocation as Long Island is so expensive and taxes so high and they do a lot of work with racing teams.    I will ask around next time I go over to the Quad cities: Locust, Red Cross, Oakboro and Stanfield....
