Landscaping business relocates from Charlotte to Midland
Formed in 2001, Champion Landscapes Inc. has relocated to Midland from Charlotte. The commercial landscape installation and maintenance business is owned and operated by Bryan Turner and family, and currently has 27 employees.
A ribbon cutting for their new facility occurred Friday, Oct. 26.
“We are excited to have an employer like Champion Landscaping become part of our community. It is very gratifying to attract a family-run local business with great values,” Midland Mayor John Crump said.
Turner and Eddie Massey of Massey Grading partnered as developers to create the new commercial development that includes a total of four lots and 1,493 feet of new public roadway called Creekside Parkway. Turner was the first to relocate his business there, and Massey is looking to relocate his business in the spring of 2019.
This will leave the developers with two lots for private sale in the future. The zoning on the lots is commercial, which allows for a wide-range of future uses.
Another relocation from Charlotte
Sealand Contractors Corporation is relocating their mid-Atlantic regional office from the NODA area of Charlotte to a tract within the Midland corporate limits off Highway 24/27 near the Mecklenburg County line.
This is in addition to CF Steel who located off Old Camden Rd within the Midland corporate limits, and PVG Trucking’s new office planned on Highway 601 just east of Rob Wallace Park.
Midland staff said residential development is strong as well.
The first phase of the 205 single-family home development Foxcreek recently sold out, and the developer has started work on the second phase. The 149 unit townhome development Bethel Park along with a 156 home single-family development Cedar Creek are currently gaining approvals.
“Within the last four years, the town’s property tax base has grown a combined 24 percent due to new developments and voluntary annexations,” Town Manager Doug Paris said. “We have the lowest property tax rate in Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties, and excellent proximity to the Charlotte market. This makes Midland a very desirable place to live and locate your business.”
