Two years of phone calls, personal visits, and numerous emails came to a close when the purchase of the former Larkhaven public golf course in NE Charlotte off Harrisburg Rd near I-485 was finalized on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Purchased by Meritage Homes, and represented by SVN Percival Partners Senior Advisor, Rush Dunaway in Charlotte, NC, the 137.6 acres will soon be turned into a housing development. One could say that public golf courses are going away, but the demand for the occasional golfer has diminished and the influx of new Charlotteans continues to rise hence the rising demand for housing. The homebuilding market continues to experience growth and therefore the demand for land is strong. Rush Dunaway, a 41-year commercial real estate veteran with 30+ years in land sales, is an expert at assembling multiple parcels and presenting the potential to area developers/homebuilders.
