New commercial development coming to West Boulevard corridor

The city of Charlotte is selling a crumbling commercial property on West Boulevard to a developer who plans to flip it.

In 2022, the city bought the deteriorating strip mall in the West Boulevard corridor to mitigate crime and drug activity. As part of the Corridors of Opportunity Program, the city asked developers to submit proposals on how to flip the strip mall into a refreshed commercial space that offers needed services in the community.

The city has chosen Lambert Commercial Real Estate to do the job, which plans to buy the property for $500,000. The Charlotte City Council unanimously approved the sale Monday night.

Executive Director of the West Boulevard Neighborhood Coalition, Sharika Comfort, told WCNC Charlotte she is excited for the future development.
