CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Greystar has broken ground on Laurent, a community located within the Rea Farms suburban center in Charlotte. Rea Farms features over 250,000 square feet of retail space. Laurent will bring 305 rental units to the center, including studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, as well as townhome-style units. The parcel was initially zoned for office space. Greystar, in cooperation with Lincoln Harris, rezoned the site to include apartments. Laurent is slated for completion in early 2025, with pre-leasing to begin in the second half of 2024.
