A Columbus, Ohio-based homebuilder said Thursday that it plans to build 99 homes in a new, 41-acre subdivision on Huntersville-Concord Road in Huntersville.
M/I Homes bought the so-called Bellington site from Charlotte-based developer Hopper Communities, which last year won approval from Huntersville to increase the property’s density from 88 lots to 99.
M/I said it has not finalized home prices, but estimated they will start at around $250,000. Construction is expected to begin late this year.
The homes will range from 2,019 to 3,500 square feet apiece and come in one- and two-story configurations. Homes will also come with two-car garages, and three-car garages will be available on some sites.
M/I could not be immediately reached for comment. Clay McCullough, development manager for Hopper, said Thursday that his company sold the land to M/I this week.
“They wanted to buy it, and we wanted to sell it,” he said. “We’ve been talking with them for the past year.”
The higher density, he said, was a “big help” in selling the land to M/I.
The purchase price was not immediately available.
