Crescent Communities has just closed on the site of their massive new mixed-use development in Uptown Charlotte. Once completed, the new development will include; 450 luxury apartments, 2 hotels, 15,000 square feet of retail space, and a 47,000 square foot Whole Foods Market.
The developer will begin construction this year on the 5.4 acre project at the Lynx Light Rail’s Stonewall Station.
“It is our vision that this Crescent community will redefine urban living in Charlotte. Whole Foods Market will be Uptown’s first full-sized grocery store. Its size, combined with Whole Foods Market’s holistic approach to the shopping experience, will allow residents, commuters and visitors to enjoy Uptown in an entirely new way.” commented Ben Collins, Crescent Communities regional vice president.
The developer is now expected to close on the rest of the 5.4-acre site before December, and plan to begin work at the property before the end of the year, and plan to be finished before 2017.
