Novel Stonewall Station
Lead Attorney: Alan Dexter
We served as real estate counsel for Novel Stonewall Station by Crescent Communities, Uptown Charlotte’s premier mixed-use, transit-oriented development. Commercial condominium regimes separate vertical project elements on 5.3 acres: 459 upscale apartments in mid- and high-rise buildings above anchor Whole Foods Market and related retail, and two 181-room hotels above restaurants and complementary retail. Reciprocal easements govern internal roads, shared utility corridors, and parking in a 10-level, 1,350-space deck. Connection agreements with the city provide elevated platform access to Charlotte’s Blue Line light rail system.

We are representing Columbia Development on a 95-acre parcel project owned by the NC State Property Office in Cary. This site will house 1 million square feet of office space, 820 residential units, plus retail and a hotel. For this project, we are advising on all municipal rezoning work, including negotiating provisions for zoning overlay district and collaborating with town council and adjacent property owners. We also represent the developer in commercial leasing transactions. In addition, we are negotiating economic incentive packages, including advice on local taxes and contracts, and advising on trademarks, public relations, and branding.
