Developer seeks greater density for SouthPark project

The potential developers of a proposed apartment building near SouthPark are looking to increase the number of people allowed to live there.
The city already voted to allow a residential project of up to 38, for-sale units at the Morrison Place shopping center. That project would have been large condominiums, according to Todd Williams, of developer Grubb Properties. But the company no longer feels the market is right for such a project, he said, and instead would like to focus on boutique luxury apartments.
The specific project would go on 1.41 acres at the intersection of Colony Road and Sharon Township Lane.
The developer wants to increase the amount of permitted housing units on the lot from 38 to 100, and allow the units to be either for lease or for sale. Williams said the units would all be for lease at least at first. The project also would decrease in height, from 90 feet to 75 feet, excluding roof and screening structures, according to the rezoning petition. Parking would go under the units in spots, with the apartment building wrapping around other parking spaces.
The building would sit at the west corner of the property, which includes the Earth Fare and Yama Asian Fusion, among other businesses, at the corner of Colony and Sharon roads.
The proposal will come before Charlotte City Council on Nov. 12, but a community meeting with area residents must be held before hand. The developer has met with a few communities already, Williams said.
