When transforming a site to be utilized for a new purpose, it may spark a rezoning to allow for a new development program. There are a variety of situations that could require a rezoning; for instance, a change in the original development program or a need to annex a parcel into city limits. Any time an owner wishes to develop their property in ways that do not conform to the current zoning district regulations, a rezoning application is necessary. Bottom line, rezoning a property can be a critical step in development of the next Optimist Hall, Meridian Place or Anker Haus. Check out these behind the scenes photos of the new space!

Each jurisdiction comes with unique zoning regulations and procedures. UDP’s team has partnered with numerous jurisdictions and knows what it takes to get an approval. Expert designs and coordination are key when it comes to the success of a rezoning. UDP goes above and beyond what most jurisdictions require because we want the public to not only support the rezoning but also to be fully informed throughout the process. Our team is well versed in rezonings all over the Metropolitan area and flexible enough to think outside the box when necessary. During the challenging months of covid lock downs, UDP worked with the city of Charlotte officials to hold virtual community meetings with rezoning information readily available to the public on our website.
