Project Update – 09/24/2018:

Charlotte City Council voted in support of Rezoning Petition 2018-060. Below is an excerpt from an article by Charlotte Biz Journals dated 9/25/2018:

Eid Refaey’s petition to build 24 attached homes on Parkwood Avenue, east of Harrill Street and west of Allen Street, in Villa Heights. The petition in its latest iteration includes a commitment for one of the homes to be eligible for the HouseCharlotte program, which provides deferred, forgivable loans to qualified applicants to help buy a home at a maximum purchase price of $224,000 for new construction. “That one unit isn’t even going to be a drop in the bucket for the affordable housing problem we have in this city but it’s going to mean the world for that one family living there and it can set an expectation,” Egleston said. “If every development that came before the city had voluntarily put forward a certain amount of affordable housing, I think it would have prevented the (current size of the affordable-housing problem). I encourage more people to make that the norm and not the exception.”
