At the March 27 meeting of the Development Action Team information was presented on two future development opportunities in Knowledge Park: 1) the former Good Motors site and 2) Oakland Avenue, between White Street and Wilson Street. The former Good Motors site is now the subject of an agreement between RHEDC and York County (current owner) whereby RHEDC is beginning environmental investigations leading to future remediation and marketing of the site.
The Oakland Avenue area is the focus of a new planning effort by the City intended to create a vision for how Oakland Avenue can become a dynamic contributor to the success of Knowledge Park (more developments like Legal Remedy and ROCO!).
Lat Purser and Associates, the Charlotte developer who recently completed the two apartment projects on Main Street, now has a contract on 119 Oakland Avenue, a former car dealership and body shop. Attached is the marketing package for the proposed development. Very exciting!
