Cherry Neighborhood Residents Concerned About Proposed 28 Story Tower
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Neighbors and some city leaders are raising concerns about a proposed 28 story tower in the Cherry neighborhood.
A developer wants to build it on two acres along South Kings Drive, between East 3rd and East 4th Streets.
Critics worry the development will add to issues with traffic and a lack of affordable housing.
Charlotte City Council is considering a rezoning petition for the project.
“Just making sure that we are not just rubber stamping petitions as they come across the dais. You know, I really want them to be more mindful of smart growth,” explains Cherry resident Sylvia Biddle-Patton.
Plans for what will go inside the tower haven’t been finalized. One option includes retail and residential space.
