The latest apartments under construction on East Morehead Street are planning a spring 2018 opening, and the building has a new name: Lincoln at Dilworth.

Lincoln Property Company, which bought the site in May from original developer Forestar Group for $14.4 million, has launched a new website,

The 379-unit apartment complex was originally called The Dillon, before Austin, Texas-based Forestar Group announced it was leaving the apartment development business. With a tower crane recently installed and construction starting to go vertical, the site at Kenilworth Avenue and Morehead is getting more prominent by the week.

There’s not much information on the website yet, just stock art of happy millennials and a place to sign up for the apartment’s VIP information list. Lincoln at Dilworth will be joining a more crowded lineup of recently opened apartments, including Solis Dilworth (across the street) and Crescent Dilworth (just down the block).

Here’s the blurb Lincoln at Dilworth is using to pitch itself to prospective renters:

“Welcome to Lincoln at Dilworth, a brand new luxury apartment community being constructed by Lincoln Property Company in the Dilworth area of Charlotte, North Carolina.

From the moment you walk through the front door of our new apartment homes, you'll feel the comfort and convenience that make our residents happy to call us home. Cutting edge amenities, meticulously-groomed grounds, and a dedicated staff of a professionally managed property contributes to a higher standard of living.
