New upscale housing is putting down roots in Historic West End.

Charlotte-based Beauxwright, LLC has launched a pair of developments: Five Points Townhomes, a 5.57-acre project next to Five Points Park near Johnson C. Smith University and Greenway Townhomes, located on 11.4 acres along Rozzelles Ferry Road.

The Five Points land purchase closed on Dec. 31 while Greenway Townhomes closed Dec. 21. Site preparation is scheduled to start this month and homes in both developments and will be priced in the high $300,000 range.

“As a resident of the area myself, I can attest to the attraction of the Historic West End,” Forde Britt, advisor and designated broker with Land Advisors Organization said in a statement. “Beauxwright's Five Points Townhomes accomplishes the seller’s goal of adding to the vibrancy of the neighborhood, while preserving its unique character.”

When complete, the Five Points project located at 360 Seldon Drive is expected to be finished early next year, will include 76 townhomes within walking distance of the Lynx Gold Line’s French Street station.

Homes in both developments include:

• Three bedrooms, with some including a fourth bedroom option

• Garage and study or bonus room on the first level

• Main living on the second floor, with kitchen dining space.

Greenway Townhomes will be made up of 133 three-bedroom homes and move-in ready by year’s end. The project is located between Rozzelles Ferry Road and West Trade Street between the Stewart Creek Greenway and Judson Avenue near the Mecklenburg County Bar Association.

“In the era of COVID-19, ‘home’ means much more to us than it did a year ago,” said Cooper Morrison, Beauxwright’s principal. “This project is a credit to the courage and confidence of the entire team that has had a hand in making Greenway Townhomes a beautiful community to live, work and play.”

Greenway Townhomes will be built in two stages: the first is 84 homes on 6.25 acres, the remainder on 5.23 acres.

Morrison said work hasn’t been delayed by the pandemic.
