A new rendering for a planned apartment building on Park Road shows a six-story building with ground-floor retail.

The rendering was filed as part of a rezoning request by Spartanburg-based Johnson Development Associates, which is planning to redevelop Pfeiffer University’s Charlotte campus.

In addition to the apartments, the building would include up to 17,000 square feet of shops, restaurants or office space, according to the rezoning plan. The building would wrap around a parking deck, and would include a swimming pool and fitness center.

Charlotte City Council is set to hold a hearing on the plan March 21. Council could vote on the plan the following month.

The Park Road corridor is seeing a massive surge of apartments. Next to the Pfeiffer site at Park Road Mockingbird Lane, Grubb Properties is planning to build 450 more apartments at its headquarters. Across the Street, Spectrum Properties is building 260 units at Park Road and Abbey Place. And just down Park Road, Pollack Shores is putting the finishing touches on 5115 Park Place, a 273-unit project.

In total, the four projects would bring 1,343 new apartments to a half-mile stretch of Park Road.

Pfeiffer is looking for a new space to hold classes in Charlotte.
