New $130 Million Mixed-Use Community Would Become Gastonia’s First Baxter Village


A Charlotte-based development group is now moving forward with a massive new $130 million development in Gastonia.

The project, now called ‘Northglenn’, would dramatically transform North Gastonia from an industrial maze into a booming mixed-use community similar to Arsley and Baxter Village.

According to the Gaston Gazette, Charlotte’s Development Solutions Group is now asking the city of Gastonia to rezone 55.7 acres of land just north of I-85 and just east of U.S. 321 from Industrial to general purpose commercial before they would be able to start construction.

The proposal for Northglenn village is divided into 2 major sections; a 32-acre, $100 million mixed-use commercial section that will include corporate offices, small shops, restaurants, a grocery store, and a hotel, and a 26-acre, $30 million residential section that will include 225 town-homes.
