Glen Lennox

Glen Lennox is a 71 acre redevelopment site located 1 mile from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill at the intersection of regional cross roads US 15-501 and NC-54/Fordham Boulevard. Land owners spent 7 years in a public engagement and entitlements process to achieve a rezoning via the Neighborhood Conservation District Plan 8C [link to document] and a 20 year Development Agreement [link to document] with the Town of Chapel Hill. The result is a shovel ready site with flexible entitlements and a shortened permit process. Glen Lennox is enlisting office and retail tenants to complement the planned mix of uses, including for sale and for rent residential, hotel, office, and retail.  Over 6 million gross square feet of buildable area is included in the entitlements, offering a rare development opportunity in a strong market.
