Fountain Court Lofts Catawba Ave on Hold - Cornelius NC News

Real Estate Agent with Lake And Town Realty 209235

The Fountains LoftFountain Court Lofts project put on hold for now and waits for decision from the Cornelius Town Board.

The White Oak Grouphas once again partnered with Axiom Architecture, a premiere architectural group for multi-family developments in the Charlotte and surrounding areas, to design a hybrid community that complements lake living and brings in modern elements of sophistication to achieve a unique style

They have developed two unique floor plans that represent the best in efficiency and design. The plans achieve a modern urban atmosphere juxtaposed to the natural beauty of Lake Norman. With nature in mind we are committed to building green and have registered the Fountain Court Lofts for LEED certification.

The Lofts will have stain concrete floors, stone countertops, as well as other earth friendly finishes. They will be fitted with increased efficiency heating and cooling systems and appliances. Fountain Court will be constructed in such a way as protect our environment and preserve our resources.

It all sounds good and I would like to see this come to fruition but the board had some reservations. One concern is what tenants will put on their balconies which will be facing Catawba Ave. They do not want to see laundry and other items hanging from railings. Could that not be solved by your HOA policies?

The other concern is traffic. Once the Ramsey Creek Parkis converted to public swimming board members are worried that without a traffic light at Nantz Road it may cause some congestion. So let's get a light!

The developers believe this site is perfect for something different and I tend to agree. Within walking distance to the new Westmoreland Athletic Complex as well as Ramsey Creek Park would allow residents easy access to both without driving.

It sounds like a nice project that should get the "green light" from the planning department.  Those small issues shouldn't be too big to deal with.
