Baxter Street is a 30-unit development planned in the historic Cherry neighborhood of Charlotte, NC.
Laurel Street was invited to the Cherry community by the community association to help address gentrification concerns. As might be expected land availability was scarce and expensive. As such, Laurel Street proposed an innovative deal with the City of Charlotte to use surplus land for affordable development.
The development site is located within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, parks and Charlotte’s downtown. Once completed, Baxter Street will offer one, two and three bedroom options to families at or below 60% area median income.
Amenities will include on-site management, fitness center, multi-purpose room, playground and a covered picnic area. Unit features will include fully equipped kitchens, washer/dryer connections, balconies, open floor plans, closets and storage. Baxter Street will be built to Energy Star v2 standards.
