New Residential Development Planned around McDowell House

(October 1, 2006) Songbird Development of Marietta, Georgia has submitted a rezoning petition that would allow the construction of 30 town homes and 58 detached houses around the historic McDowell House at the intersection of S Tryon Street and Beam Road.

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission, the McDowell Family (which secured the land as early as 1739) built the house in three stages. A log house was built in 1790, it was enlarged in 1843, and a four-room addition was added in the front in 1912.

According to the site notes in the rezoning application, the house would be preserved and may be used as an accessory structure for meetings or a clubhouse or as a bed and breakfast inn. 

Developers are holding a public meeting on Monday, October 2 at the Tyvola Church of God at 100 W Tyvola Road at 7:00 pm. The City Council will hold a public hearing on November 20. See Rezoning Petition 2006-149 to view the site plan. See also A new development would center around an old home in Neighbors of Southern Mecklenburg.
