Tidewater Partners, who along with Southern Commercial Real Estate, were in talks with the town to purchase several acres in the downtown area, is no longer interested according to Town Manager Brian Welch.

On June 26, The Mint Hill Times reported SCT-Mint Hill, which was the name of the joint venture, was “progressing” according to Robin Davis of Tidewater. The plan was to build a mixed-use project with retail, office and townhouses. Welch said the town has already had an inquiry by another development firm to buy the town owned land for development. The town originally agreed to sell the land for $185,430 an acre.
