Alexander Farm getting back on track

June 9. By Dave Vieser. One month ago, the headline read as follows:

Stalled for a while due to permits, work at Alexander Farms will resume

For those traveling by the intersection of West Catawba Avenue and Westmoreland Road in Cornelius, the definition of “will resume” may seem a bit puzzling these days since nothing has happened at the future site of the $110 million mixed-used development over the past month.

Here’s an exclusive update:

Work should resume by the end of the month, according to Jesse McInerney from Florida-based Win Development.


“All plans are officially approved. Pipe crews remobilized this week with full remobilization in the next two weeks. Work should resume before the end of the month,” McInerney said.

Not fun

“Stopping work is not the way we desire to operate, but it’s taken time to get all the required permits” he said. “Now, we are just about ready to go.”

All told, the project is running about a year late.

Grading and infrastructure activities will be done by years end, with construction of vertical elements getting under way in 2024.


The development includes 145 active adult units and 70 single-family homes, with retail near West Catawba.

In addition to Lidl, commercial tenants include Papa John’s, Jeremiah’s Ice and a dental practice.

The historic tenant house will be preserved on the property near the corner of Westmoreland and West Catawba.

  1. This tenant house picture was taken last year. It looks so much worse now.
    Do you think it will stand up until they find time to restore it?

  2. Trying to find information on the non age restricted single family homes
    How can I find that

    Will either Catawba or Westmoreland be widened?
