BRUNSWICK COUNTY — One of North Carolina’s fastest-growing counties recently gained hundreds more homes to house even more residents.
Several planned unit developments were approved by the Brunswick County Planning Board Monday, including a 223-unit subdivision and expansions to current neighborhoods.
As the population grows — Navassa and Leland also rank among the top five fastest-growing municipalities statewide — the county’s planning agendas are some of the most packed with development.
The planning board did authorize three out of five projects on Monday’s slate. Below are the buildouts that gained the go-ahead.
Chappell Loop Tract
100082 Chappell Loop Road SE, Leland
Around 20 acres between Belville and Leland jurisdictions could gain 150 multi-family units across five buildings, each averaging 16,000 square feet.
The developer is H&W Design, the company behind many local projects, including The Arboretum in Wilmington, Brunswick Harbor and St. James Plantation in St. James, and Cypress Trail in Brunswick County.
The Chappell Loop Tract would not need a rezoning, as it is labeled R-6000 for high density residential in accordance with the parcels surrounding the development. H&W is proposing a density of 7.3 units per acre, the maximum allowed under the zoning.
Two parking spaces per unit will be provided while the roads will be private yet adhere to NCDOT standards. A traffic impact analysis will be required prior to the recording of individual lots, but the application states 1,435 vehicle trips per weekday.
H2GO will provide water and sewer services, despite their interlocal agreement to merge their services with the Town of Leland; however, this property’s services are wholly owned by H2Go and not subject to the contract.
Open space is required to be at least 5.13 acres, but H&W incorporated 11.95 acres, while 2.76 acres will be dedicated to recreation space.
The planning board voted unanimously to approve the project.
Intersection of Empire Road SW and Mt. Pisgah Road SW, Supply
Coastal Land Design Engineering is proposing 121 single family lots and 102 semi-attached units on 51 acres on Mt. Pisgah and Empire roads, 8 miles outside of Holden Beach.
The applicant is Coastal Land Design Engineering, a major developer behind a host of developments in Brunswick and New Hanover counties, including Eden Village, Sunset Park and…
