A developer is planning to build 23 new townhouses on vacant land just east of uptown, according to a rezoning plan filed recently with the city of Charlotte.
CapRock LLC is seeking to rezone the 1.16-acre site – adjacent to rail tracks and between Seigle Avenue and Harrill Street – from industrial to residential use.
A preliminary site plan shows the townhouses built in five buildings, including two quadplexes, arranged around a private street. The buildings could be up to three stories tall. An illustrative rendering shows houses with modern architecture with rooftop decks.
A CapRock official couldn’t immediately be reached for more information. The company has developed townhouses previously in Charlotte, including at Peridoe, a development that backs up to the greenway near uptown.
Charlotte City Council will consider the proposal and vote on it in the coming weeks.
The site at Harrill Street is currently vacant.
