Alexander Farm gets unanimous OK

Alexander Farm property at Westmoreland and Catawba

Aug. 7. By Dave Vieser. The Cornelius Town Board approved rezoning requests for the Alexander Farm and Baileys Glen properties at their Monday meeting. The board also received a report that says major road improvements may be delayed significantly due to funding issues at the NCDOT.


Alexander Farm: The commissioners voted unanimously to approve the rezoning for the $110 million mixed-use development planned for the 55-acre Alexander Farm in Cornelius. The mixed-use development with retail, gathering space, parkland, residential and senior housing will be transformational for the West Catawba/Westmoreland area. WIN Development of Belleaire Beach, Florida, has worked through a variety of changes to the project since it was first proposed in 2017 including a number of traffic and transportation improvements.

—Forest at Baileys Glen: Unanimous approval was also granted for the rezoning of 13.5 acres located on Bernhardt Road. The proposed development will include eleven single family homes and an amenity center.

NCDOT delays

A clearer picture of the delay may be better known later this week when the matter is presented before the State Transportation Board in Raleigh.
