Cornelius, meet Caroline. Caroline, meet Cornelius. Hearing is Monday

April 16. By Dave Vieser. The first public hearing on Caroline, a 17-acre mixed-use project proposed near Antiquity, is scheduled for Monday evening.

Proffit Dixon, a Charlotte based developer, hopes to build on vacant property next to Greenway Gartens, the mixed-use project planned by Olde Mecklenburg Brewery at the northern end of Zion Avenue near the Davidson town line.

The Caroline development would include an active adult/age-restricted residential section, retail, offices, commercial buildings, multi-family residential and mixed-use buildings.

Rezone needed

The property is currently zoned neighborhood residential and would need to be rezoned for conditional zoning by the town board if the project is to proceed.

Proffit Dixon Partners was founded in 2010 and focuses on multifamily residential, active adult, and mixed-use projects in the Carolinas and Tennessee. Mooresville Town Square Center near Lowe’s Supermarket off of Williamson Road is one of their projects.
