Steele Creek is home to one of nation’s most thriving zip codes

A suburban community in Steele Creek just outside of Lake Wylie has made realtor.com‘s list as one of the countries hottest 50 ZIP Codes for home sales.
Throughout the entire Charlotte region, home sales have been on the rise as have new construction projects. New home construction, however, “is moving at a faster pace in the Steele Creek area compared to the city as a whole, according to Metrostudy, which tracks new home construction.” All of this new development means the booming Steele Creek community is drawing plenty of home buyers.

Current inventory available in this region is at just the right price point to continue to attract those ready to purchase a new home, but potential buyers have to act quickly if they are interested in a property because homes here are not staying on the market long.

The median sales price of homes here in March was $193,475 compared to the $220,950 price point for the overall Charlotte region. The greater affordability os good for buyers, plus, with the speed at which homes are selling, owners are even more tempted to put their homes on the market, with much more confidence that they will sell quickly. Thus, the market is good for sellers, too.

There is a ton of growing potential for this area because there is so much land available for new development projects.

New Fort Mill development will include gourmet grocer

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the 12-acre site on N.C. 49 that is bordered by Steele Creek Road and Hoover Creek Boulevard. While the details on this development site have yet to be confirmed, rezoning efforts and city planners are working towards establishing a gourmet grocery store here.

The new development aims to be a focal point for shoppers of both Steele Creek and Lake Wylie, and design plans intend to create a walkable environment featuring a variety of retail.

While the name of the new gourmet grocery store seems to be a bit of a secret, there has been confirmation that it will not be a Whole Foods market. The new grocery store would be part of a 90,000 square-foot development project that would include office as well as retail space. The site is located between RiverGate Shopping Center and Carolinas HealthCare System Steele Creek–a location that has seen some major activity in recent years.

The unnamed gourmet grocery store that will be built here is going to be central to the development project. For more details and information on the project, be sure to read the full article at heraldonline.com, and stay tuned for which grocery store will officially be moving in to Fort Mill.

screen-shot-2016-09-11-at-4-28-27-pmSteele Creek’s lovely community of Berewick is getting a new apartment complex that will be located right next to the Berewick Town Center’s village green near the community’s retail center.

The shopping center will be anchored by the new Harris Teeter that is scheduled to open in October.  The 53,000 square-foot grocery store will be a big addition to the community and will certainly help to accommodate the new residents that will be moving in once the new apartment community of Solis Berewick  is completed.

The site of Solis Berwick is 13.8 acres and was purchased for $4.7 million this summer by Terwilliger Pappas, and the apartment development company has finally broken ground on the new Steele Creek 275-unit community.

Residents here will be able to take advantage of fantastic amenities, including a clubhouse, a poolside pavilion with a fire pit, a fitness center, a pet park, and more. Initial apartment homes and amenities are slated to be completed by the middle of 2017, with the entire community finished by early 2018.

Steele Creek is a charming town that borders Lake Wylie and is conveniently located close to interstate 485  and not far from the airport, and offers one of the quickest commutes to uptown Charlotte.  Steele Creek also offers plenty of great shopping and dining, and the new Solis Berewick apartment community will make a wonderful residential addition.
