CHARLOTTE – The Beechwood Organization is increasing its footprint to the Carolinas, starting with new residential proposals in Charlotte and Chapel Hill.
The two current residential development proposals from Beechwood include South Creek in Chapel Hill and Ferncliff in the Cotswold area of Charlotte.
“Our homebuyers may be buying their first family home or moving up to a luxury estate, empty-nesters looking to ‘rightsize’ or urban dwellers who value easy access to transportation and services,” Principal Steven Dubb said. “The Carolinas provides these buyers with the seasonal temperatures and a location not too far from home, while our range of housing types provides the lifestyle and function needed to enjoy everyday life.”
With Ferncliff in Charlotte, Beechwood submitted a proposal to repurpose the property from an existing single-family home to build five luxury townhomes.
Residential real estate veteran Robert Kardos will lead the firm's entry into the Carolinas.
Kardos has 35 years of regional and national homebuilding management experience, specializing for 20 years in luxury housing and five years in active adult building.
Most recently, Kardos served as regional president of Epcon Communities for the Charlotte and Charleston regions. He also held previous leadership positions with Mattamy Homes, Toll Brothers and M/I Homes.
“Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work with many homebuyers across the Carolinas, and I look forward to introducing Beechwood’s unique housing product to my community,” Kardos said. “These two rezoning proposals aim to enhance the quality of life for both existing residents and those looking to relocate, and I am excited to get started.”
The Beechwood team has engaged with local and regional talent, including architects 505Design, to design the Charlotte and Chapel Hill project.
