As Charlotte continues it’s ever expansive growth trend, there’s one thing everyone seems to be asking for – more retail.
This past Monday night, the Charlotte City Council approved a major new retail-heavy 180-acre development in North Charlotte, called Farmington. The new mixed-use development will be similar to Baxter Village in Fort Mill, Birkdale Village in Huntersville, and Arsley in South West Charlotte – only bigger.
It will be built on a 180-acre tract of raw land just north of Rocky River Road near I-485.
According to MPV Properties, the new Farmington development will include:
- A 120-room hotel.
- A 14-screen movie theater.
- 200,000 square feet of retail space.
- 160,000 square feet of office space, including medical offices.
- 300 townhouses.
- 275 apartments.
- 120 units of “active senior” housing.
It will also include walking trails, bike lanes, and a greenway connection.
