Crescent Communities planning new mixed-use development on North Davidson

Charlotte-based developer Crescent Communities is planning another mixed-use development on North Davidson Street, along the Blue Line light rail extension.

According to a rezoning petition, Crescent Communities is looking to redevelop almost 25 acres at the corner of Craighead Road and North Davidson Street. The redevelopment could include single-family, for-sale houses, multifamily units and retail. A Crescent Communities representative couldn’t immediately be be reached.

The documents show the development would be major: The site could include up to 450 residential units.

Crescent is already planning to develop an apartment complex and possible boutique grocery store sevearl blocks away in NoDa, along the Blue Line extension, at the 36th Street station. Crescent is also building several other high-profile developments in Charlotte, including apartments, a hotel, an office tower and a Whole Foods uptown, apartments in SouthPark and Dilworth, and a mixed-use project on Providence Road just south of I-485.

The Craighead Road land has several owners, including Vision Ventures, a Charlotte-based developer. The land – a block away from the planned Sugar Creek Station – is largely zoned for industrial uses right now.

The rezoning petition is scheduled for a September hearing before Charlotte City Council.
