Wheelock Street Capital and Haven Communities Announce Acquisition of 1.9-Acre Site for Multifamily Development in the Heart of Charlotte’s South End


Haven Communities (“Haven”) and Wheelock Street Capital (“Wheelock”), with the assistance of its capital advisor Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group (“Patterson”), purchased the 1.9-acre site at the corner of South Church St. and West Bland St. in Charlotte, NC. Haven and Wheelock are planning to develop Haven South End (the “Project”), a 304-unit Class-A, luxury midrise multifamily development. The partnership plans to break ground in the summer of 2021.

Haven South End is positioned at the epicenter of South End’s vibrant live-work-play district and just blocks away from the LYNX Blue Line’s Bland Street Station and the Charlotte Rail Trail. The Project is proximate to some of the area’s most popular restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, and transformative commercial developments and will benefit from immediate access across I-277 into Uptown Charlotte, the city’s primary CBD.

“We are very excited at the opportunity to collaborate with Wheelock and are very proud of the overall team’s efforts to acquire this property. We look forward to delivering a high-quality multifamily offering to the South End community” said Jay Williams, Founder and CEO of Haven Communities.

“We’ve been looking for the right opportunity in Charlotte’s South End neighborhood and are thrilled to be partnering with Haven Communities on this development” said Hunter Jones, Principal of Wheelock Street Capital.

“We are excited to be able to bring together two impressive groups in Haven and Wheelock for the acquisition and development of the Property. We look forward to seeing the team’s success moving forward.” said Lance Patterson of Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group.
