Key hearing nears for large residential project planned on Lake Norman

After months of moving through the approvals process, a developer appears to be approaching a key hearing for its planned project on Lake Norman.

Town documents show that on Jan. 3, the Mooresville Board of Commissioners is scheduled to consider rezoning and annexation requests for a 96.8-acre site off Transco Road. The approvals are being sought by Alabama-based LIV Development, which is proposing a project with hundreds of residential units on the waterfront.

The proposed project includes a range of housing types, including 353 multifamily units, 136 townhomes and 90 duplexes, according to a site plan available in town records.
