Crescent Communities Breaks Ground on 63-Acre Mixed-Use Alexander Village in Charlotte
By Eliza Theiss, Associate Editor
Crescent Communities (formerly known as Crescent Resources) has announced breaking ground on the 63-acre health club-inspired Alexander Village. The ambitious project is being developed on Senator Royall Drive close to University Research Park, an area presenting high growth numbers. The mixed-use development is set to be constructed in several phases and is inspired by Crescent Communities’ award-winning Palmetto Bluff Resort located in Bluffton, S.C.
The $33.6 million Phase One of Crescent Alexander Village is the multi-use development’s 27-acre residential component. The garden-style luxury apartment community will comprise 320 units. Buildings will feature a vernacular classical design, such as stonework reminiscent of 18th-century stone homes—present in the community’s clubhouse, as well as several seaside resort-type elements such as an outdoor yoga lawn. Eight of the 320 units will be cottages intended as corporate apartments.
Community amenities include a clubhouse that will target LEED certification, a state-of-the-art health club, business center, clubroom, gaming area, catering kitchen, outdoor kitchen, outdoor fireplace, lounging areas, resort-style saltwater pool, aqua sundeck, bocce courts, amphitheater, scenic pond with fitness trail, and an expansive, wooded dog park.
“We are creating a community that will be an ideal complement to the continued growth in high-level career opportunities within University Research Park,” declared Brian Natwick, president of Crescent’s multifamily group, in a news release.
Further development phases include 250,000 square feet of office space, up to 75,000 square feet of retail, and a hotel. The project is a registered member of the Audubon International Signature Program and is working towards becoming a Certified Signature Sanctuary. Regions Bank is project construction lender.
