More townhouses headed to Charlotte's Steele Creek area

Another townhouse development is on the drawing board in Steele Creek, this one with up to 127 new residences.

Builder BNA Homes filed a rezoning request recently for 15.9 acres on South Tryon Street, just south of Shopton Road. That’s across from Adare, a townhouse development by BNA Homes where a two-bedroom starts at $146,900. The site is currently mostly vacant and wooded, with a few houses.

According to the rezoning documents, the development would include a pool and amenity area, with access to a network of private streets from Tryon and Culloden More Court. The townhouses would be two stories.

A BNA Homes executive couldn’t immediately be reached for more information. Charlotte City Council will hold a hearing on the rezoning plan in the next several months and vote on the proposal.

The proposed development is the latest in a string of new residential projects planned or underway in Steele Creek.

Pulte Homes is planning to build up to 550 townhouses and 292 apartments at Brown-Grier and Steele Creek roads, while a 271-unit apartment development is already under construction down the street at Brown-Grier and Sandy Porter roads. A 120-room hotel was also announced last week at Dixie River Road and Trojan Drive.

BNA has also developed townhouses in the University City area and Mooresville.
