Feb. 1. By Dave Vieser. Architectural plans for the Greenway Gartens project, one of two major developments planned for the northeast section of Cornelius, received a thumbs up at this week’s meeting of the Architectural Review Board.

Any further reviews will be handled at the county level, according to Senior Town Planner Aaron Tucker.

The architectural elevations were presented to the board which recommended approval.

“They noted that the buildings included a mix of architectural styles and were attractive. The next step for the developer would be to submit applications for a formal building permit through Mecklenburg County Building Dept.,” Tucker said.

Charlotte-based Northwood Ravin is redeveloping the old Curtis Screw site on Zion Avenue with a total of 448 residential units and 44,000 square feet of non-residential space.
