More townhouses are coming to sites next to Heist Brewery, the latest example of a denser, infill development filling in a small blank spot on the Charlotte map.
Charlotte City Council voted unanimously Monday to approve a plan from homebuilder Saussy Burbank that will allow 35 new townhouses on the 9.2-acre site that’s mostly occupied by Heist Brewery, Highland Mill Lofts and several other businesses. The building would take place along two strips of land on 33rd Street and North Brevard Street, which are currently undeveloped.
The townhouses would be priced in the upper $300,000 range, totaling three bedrooms and about 2,200 square feet. Each would have a two-car garage and a driveway, and the plan calls for several recessed, on-street parking spaces on North Brevard and 33rd streets.
Groundbreaking could take place in early 2017, with the first townhouses available by year’s end. Shook Kelley is the architect on the project.
Charlotte-based Saussy Burbank has built houses both in established neighborhoods – doing infill in Cherry and Dilworth, for example – and in new developments, such as Masons Bend in Fort Mill and Riverwalk in Rock Hill.
