CHARLOTTE, NC - Canyon Partners Real Estate and The NRP Group announced a joint venture for the development of the Abernethy Lofts, a 392-unit, Class A multifamily community in the NODA submarket of Charlotte, North Carolina. Canyon provided $35.9 million of LP equity for the development, which is in a qualified opportunity zone. Construction of the community will begin immediately and is expected to be completed in Q2 2026.
Located walking distance to the Sugar Creek LYNK Blue Line Rail Station in Charlotte's North Davidson arts and entertainment district ("NoDa"), Abernethy Lofts will be in one of the city's most desirable neighborhoods and positioned among hundreds of restaurants, shops, galleries and music venues. As Charlotte's established workforce continues to grow as a result of corporate relocations and expansions, the community's proximity to public transportation will provide residents with convenient access to the area's major employment centers, including Uptown Charlotte, University City and the South End.
"Since our first development in the NoDa neighborhood over five years ago, we have recognized the incredible opportunities and amenities readily available to residents in this area," said Jason Mochizuki, Vice President of Development at The NRP Group. "We are proud to partner with Canyon for the fourth time in the Charlotte market to continue creating highly desirable rental opportunities in a location that offers connectivity and convenience."
Most recently, Canyon collaborated with NRP in February 2023 for the development of South Tryon, a residential community in Charlotte's South End.
Abernethy Lofts will total 344,339 square feet and include an extensive amenity package with a resort style pool, a large outdoor area with private dining, pizza and grilling stations, work-from-home conference pods, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a large dog park. The community will have structured parking for 509 spaces and a garage with branded electric bikes. The community will feature several environmental, social and governance ("ESG") attributes including ENERGY STAR rated appliances and Wi-Fi-enabled "Smart" thermostats.

Since its inception, Canyon has invested approximately $2.0 billion in debt and equity to capitalize nearly $6.2 billion of total projects in the Southeast.
