Renaissance” Underway at the Former Boulevard Homes

Laurel Street Residential, the residential developer for the 41-acre mixed income new community, has begun construction in the Boulevard Homes Redevelopment, continuing its work with the Housing Authority of the City of Charlotte (CHA) to revitalize this former public housing community, which was recently renamed The Renaissance. Laurel Street teamed up with general contractors Weaver Cooke & R.J. Leeper in a joint venture to build the first residential phase, and Miles-McClellan, in the construction of infrastructure. Phase I of the development of the new Renaissance community is expected to be completed by September 2013, a first step in the community's goal to reinvigorate the West Boulevard corridor
