Taft Development Group is developing Residences Galleria, which will include 250 units — one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments as well as two- and three-bedroom townhouses. The $35 million project is being built on a 21.5-acre site at 10252 Monroe Road, on the Charlotte-Matthews border and across the street from Family Dollar's headquarters.

Units will include interior finishes like granite countertops, plank floors and stand-up glass showers. Some of the townhouses will have garages. Community amenities include a clubhouse with a swimming pool and sundeck, yoga and fitness center, business lounge, pavilion, billiard room, and clubroom with a cooking demonstration area.

Taft Development estimates pre-leasing for Residences Galleria to commence in late 2019 and that move-ins will begin in winter 2020. Taft Construction Group is the general contractor at Residences Galleria. The property will be managed by Taft Management Group.

This is the second project in the Charlotte metro for Taft Development Group, which also developed The Indigo at Cross Creek in Indian Land. The company says it is currently planning and developing 1,300 multifamily units, 300 single-family lots and 40,000 square feet of commercial space.

Taft Family Ventures' New Downtown Project Will Target Homebuyers

Taft Family Ventures announced it is building a 12-unit townhouse development on property bordered by Reade Circle, Dickinson Avenue and Evans Street.

Taft Family Ventures announced it is building a 12-unit townhouse development on property bordered by Reade Circle, Dickinson Avenue and Evans Street.

Taft Family Ventures is pursuing a third housing development that is geared towards home buyers in downtown Greenville, a company spokesman announced at Wednesday’s annual Uptown Greenville State of the District event.

Unlike its previous two student housing projects in the district, Avenue Townes will be 12 for-sale townhomes. The development will be located on a lot that is bordered by Reade Circle, Dickinson Avenue and Evans Street.

“Greenville needs diversified housing in our downtown area. A for-sale product is very important to us,” said Mike McCarty, president of Taft Development Group.

McCarty described the site as a premiere location since it puts future homeowners within walking distance of restaurants, retail shops, the State Theatre, Sheppard Memorial Library and other amenities.

“Hopefully we want to inspire other developers to do more for-sale products downtown,” McCarty said.

The firm is finalizing the project’s cost, but McCarty described the structures as “brownstone-inspired, luxury” townhomes.

The units will range from 2,160 to 2,400 square feet and are expected to have three bedrooms. Some units will have rooftop decks, elevator access from the ground floor, cantilevered patios off the main living area and parking. Pre-sales will begin this spring.

McCarty also announced the company also plans to move its headquarters to a building it is renovating near the intersection of Eighth Street and Dickinson Avenue this fall.
