In Progress This project is located on the 27-acre campus of Savona Mill’s master-planned mixed use redevelopment, which is centered around the conversion of a 200,000 SF 105-year-old former textile mill into an adaptive reuse office space that includes retail and a community plaza. Elford will be constructing the development’s new 321-unit multi-family residential buildings. The buildings will feature state-of-the-art amenities and direct access to ample greenspace, the expanded Stewart Creek Greenway, and nearly 40 acres of adjacent parks.


In Progress  This project includes the construction of a mixed-use residential/retail building in Huntersville, NC. The 4-story building will consist of 134 apartment units on the top three floors as well as on the East side of the first floor, and retail spaces on the North side of the first floor. The East building will house the leasing office and associated tenant common-use spaces. At the South end of the building, there will be an amenity spaces that will include fitness and club rooms, and as outdoor area with a patio and pool. The construction of the development also includes site utilities and infrastructure to support the construction of townhomes that will be completed in a future phase.


The Pointe at Polaris project was a multi-phase project that included multiple retail, office, and apartment spaces, as well as two separate parking garages on a 21-acre site prominently located along I-71. The first phase of the project included the construction of a 216-unit apartment building, 569-space parking garage, and 100,000 SF of office and first floor retail spaces. Tenant improvement work was also performed for office and retail tenants including Condado Tacos, Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea, and Anthem BCBS during this phase.

In Phase 2, an additional 150,000 SF office building, 267-unit apartment building, and 458-space parking garage were constructed adjacent to the fully operational phase 1 of the development. The team was able to successfully coordinate construction activities to ensure minimal disruption to the neighboring office, apartment, and retail tenants.

Amenity spaces for apartment residents in both buildings included a community room, lap pool, indoor and outdoor fitness center, bike storage and repair stations, outdoor grills and fire pits, and hammocks were also constructed during both phases of the project.


Elford Development approached Mike James with the assistance of Mark Heath, Chipotle Mexican Grill Real Estate Director, about exploring an opportunity to redevelop their family’s large site in the Short North. Elford and our team of consultants altered the site consisting of a 5 story warehouse building that was 60’ wide by approximately 300’ deep, to a 5 story new / old urban structure that again fits seamlessly into its newly gentrified surroundings. The 4 and 5 story new building includes 15,500 SF of retail space on the first floor and 56 residential units above.

The development team was able to locate and establish a long term lease with a local contiguous Baptist church adjacent to the project, helping the project offer 33 additional parking spaces.
