No plans for Lake Pines-Chartown connection

Registix proposed headquarters on Chartown

Feb. 20. By Dave Yochum. It looks like there are no plans to extend Lake Pines Drive to Chartown Drive where there are a number of new businesses and more on the way.

Lake Pines tracks north off Westmoreland just west of I-77 toward the southern tip of Chartown which runs parallel to I-77 from Lake Norman Infiniti to Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep and, just south of there, the site of the proposed headquarters and “innovation hub” for Registix, a Huntersville company.

“We do not anticipate the Town Board wanting to make the connection in any way shape or form. There is no desire to route traffic through the neighborhood,” said Assistant Town Manager Wayne Herron.

The neighborhoods include the Legacy Apartments and the Westmoreland community.


It turns out town staff was obligated to bring the possible north-south connection up because it is still shown in the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) thoroughfare plan.

“We anticipate having it removed in spring of this year,” Herron said.

What may occur instead is a pedestrian/cycling path, but only if neighbors would support such an option, said Filip Maciolowski, CEO of Registix.

Maciolowski is planning a three-story office building totaling 40,000 square feet that would house 45 to 60 employees in what’s called reverse logistics.

If approvals occur in a timely fashion ground-breaking could take place in “the next year or so,” he said.
