White Point Partners is continuing to transform the Brewers at 4001 Yancey area. Plans call for the existing parking lot of Brewers/Bowers Fiber building to be completely redeveloped into office, additional retail, a parking deck and potentially a hotel.
White Point has filed a rezoning petition asking for up to 135 feet in height, up to 195,000 square feet in new development. It would be the biggest game changer to that area. Note the layout and specs may change, but if the rezoning petition is approved, they would be able to build up to that height and square footage.
This will increase the amount of retail offerings in this incredible self-contained district and additional office as well, in addition to Brewers at 4001 Yancey, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery, Sugar Creek, Broken Spoke, Good Road, Queen Park Social and more.
“We are very pleased with the success of the Bowers project and the tenants we have there, and are evaluating ways to build upon that success,” said Jay Levell, co-founder of White Point.
The rezoning calls for an enhanced open-space plan that will make this site even more walkable by adding a defined path through the development that will be filled with patio seating, cool landscaping and retail.
“Focusing on the pedestrian/public experience is core to what we do,” said Levell. “Part of that includes the interaction between tenants and the way they experience the property.”
Rezoning was just filed so, if approved, it will be a while before this wraps up. It’s still incredibly exciting for the future of the area.
“Alongside our investments in the Queen Park Social building and the Bowers redevelopment, we hope to continue to play a role in this burgeoning area in the future.”
