More potential development for Lake Wylie, Fort Mill and more

Plenty of residential and commercial development is on the horizon in Lake Wylie, Fort Mill and all over York County. Many projects are still in the planning phases, but locals  could expect some big changes around town.

Lake Wiley’s Mill Creek Commons could be the potential new site for a new apartment community right across from the Harpers Green subdivision. This will be a significant residential addition as Mill Creek Commons is already home to many commercial retailers, including Walmart, Lowe’s, McDonald’s, Bank of America, Wachovia, Walgreens and Zaxby’s.

Furthermore, the 13-acre Public Storage site at the corner of Bonum Road and SC 49 could be home to even more new mini warehouses.

Fort Mill may be getting a new vet clinic at the North Carolina state line just off of Hamilton Place. Also in Fort Mill, a 5,000 square-foot space at 3004 US could undergoing a change from retail space to restaurant space.

There are also talks of building a 157-lot subdivision in the Rock Hill area just east of Hands Mill Highway. County planners are also discussing expanding another home subdivision at Shadow Lane and Brush Creek Road, and expanding a single-family subdivision west of SC 901.

These are just a few of the projects that county and city planners are deliberating over. For more details on these potential developments and others in the area, be sure to read the full article at heraldonline.com.

Much-anticipated McLean development pushes forward

McLean is one of the most talked about and highly anticipated residential developments in Belmont, North Carolina on Lake Wylie. The 670-acre development covers five miles of shoreline along the border between North Carolina and South Carolina.  The community will include 800 homes, as well as a marina with a waterfront restaurant, a public park, 10 new miles of trails that will connect to already existing trails, and a pool clubhouse in each of the three primary neighborhoods of the subdivision.

The current breaking news on the development regards the 37 of the 800 new homes that dip into York County in South Carolina. While York County has already approved the plans for this part of the neighborhood, The company behind the new development project has asked for an extension, as currently construction is only allowed to continue through August 10 of this year. County planning staff is recommending a one year extension to guarantee completion within a preapproved time frame. Because these York County homes will have no access from York County, the roads, water and sewer infrastructure will be served by Belmont, as this is where the majority of the development sits.

The three primary neighborhoods of the development are South Shore, the Conservancy, and Overlake. Construction on South Shore homes has already begun and homes in the neighborhood will range from approximately $400,000 to over $1 million. Homes in the Conservancy are slated to be ready this spring and start at approximately $240,000. Home construction in Overlake is not slated to begin until later this year,  and the marina will be built as part of a much later phase. The entire McLean project, which includes not only the homes but also the marina, restaurant, park, trails and more is not expected to be completed in its entirety for approximately 8 to 10 years.
