Once a historic textile mill, Savona Mill is set to emerge as a 30-acre redevelopment project, bringing in an influx of new retailers, office space, restaurants and 600 new apartments. With groundbreaking for the first phase set for October, this development signifies massive growth for the area. The project will feature state-of-the-art amenities and an unprecedented connection to greenspace and gardens with direct access to the expanded Stewart Creek Greenway and nearly 40 acres of adjacent parks.

For those days when you want to ditch your car in favor of a leisurely walk or bike ride, West Charlotte is the perfect place to be. Seversville is the 35th most walkable neighborhood in Charlotte, meaning you’re always steps away from things to do and places to go. This area is also conveniently located just minutes away from the 510 CityLYNX Gold Line and the 33 Bus Bridge bus at the Wesley Heights CityLYNX stop, meaning you’ll always have access to core parts of the city.
