Sept. 21. By Dave Vieser. UPDATED. The Cornelius Town Board unanimously approved rezoning for the Sefton Park mixed-use development—complete with a hotel, conference center and apartments—at last night’s meeting.

New: Before the board vote, former commissioner Dave Gilroy had some words of warning: “While I support much of this proposal, the dense residential component of this project is unnecessary. The job of this board is not to say yes to everything. What we need is balance and moderation.” Gilroy is running for his old seat on the town board, having lost his bid for re-election in 2019.

A new hotel

South Carolina-based Shaw Resources plans to build 344 multi-family units and a hotel with a conference center on 10 acres of property that has been a vacant eyesore for years. The project, which also includes commercial space, is opposite the CATS station on Sefton Park, just beyond Jetton Road Extension.

Transit and apartments

Development principals Jack Shaw and Don Shaw hope the CATS station will be a natural draw for commuters traveling into Charlotte. The property was stubbed in years ago with streets that are now overgrown and in disrepair.

“The apartments here will be walkable, bike-able, to town,” said developer Michael Johnson, speaking for Shaw. “As for transit, if we give people passes in the apartments, they will use them. I foresee that we can really stimulate usage of CATS.”

Johnson also pledged to provide some units at reduced rates for town workers.
