Charlotte, NC – Construction is scheduled to begin next month on Fountains at Mooresville Town Square (top left rendering), a 227-unit, $23 million luxury apartment community developed by Charlotte-based Hawkins-Dixon, Ltd.
The new community, located just north of Charlotte in Mooresville, NC, is the residential component of Mooresville Town Square, a recently-opened mixed-use center featuring a new Lowes Foods, numerous restaurants and businesses, the Bella Lago Spa, and the Goddard School, a five-star preschool.
The walkable town square area features a central greenway with sitting areas and easy access to its many stores and businesses. Located at the intersection of Williamson and Brawley School roads just off I-77, the community is close to major employers, The Shops at Morrison Plantation and Lake Norman itself.
“I don’t think we could find a better location in the Lake Norman area or in northern Mecklenburg County,” said Hawkins-Dixon principal Wyatt Dixon (middle right photo). “My partners and I have been focused on this project for quite some time and we’re happy to see it move forward.”
This is the third apartment community Dixon has developed in the Lake Norman area; he was involved in the development of two nearby projects during his tenure with Summit Properties and later with Faison and Associates.
Dixon says developing “Class A” residential components within mixed-use communities will be an integral part of the company’s long-term focus. “Well-located lifestyle centers such as Mooresville Town Square offer a good opportunity for us to develop quality apartment communities,” he said. “Residents look for the convenience this type of development brings—the ability to walk to restaurants, bars, entertainment, and even the grocery store next door.”
The architect for the project is The Housing Studio; Design Resource Group is the land planner, engineer and landscape architect. Samet Corporation is the general contractor. Jones Lang LaSalle will handle construction management. Greystar will manage the completed property.
