2 projects up for review by Planning Board

Greenway Gartens rendering

July 19. By Dave Vieser. A crucial meeting of the Cornelius Planning Board will take place this Wednesday July 21 beginning at 6:30 pm when the newly appointed members consider a major mixed-use project near downtown called Greenway Gartens as well as a five-story residential/commercial building on South Main.

The meeting begins at 6:30 pm and will be streamed live on the town web site www.cornelius.org.

Here are the project details:

Greenway Gartens

Northwood Ravin’s Greenway Gartens project includes a plan to redevelop approximately 25 acres located on Zion Avenue (the former Curtis Screw site) into a mixed use complex. It includes mutli family housing, townhomes, commercial space and an Olde Mecklenburg Brewery/Beer Garden.

The Venue

George Macon, the applicant, wants to rezone approximately 2 acres located on South Main for a mixed-use project comprising up to 70 apartment units and 6,000 square feet of ground floor retail, restaurant, commercial, and office space in one five-story building.

Per town code, the Planning Board provides only a recommendation to the Town Board on each project; the final decision rests with the Town Board.

Greenway Gartens is currently scheduled for a decision at the Town Board’s Aug. 2 meeting while the Venue decision is currently set for Aug. 16. These dates, however, are subject to change.

  1. We need to add more business development on the east side of I-77.

    Residential projects should be minimal due to our road deficiencies .
