Physical construction on the 250,000-square-foot Cabarrus Courthouse expansion/renovation began in 2020, and officials expect the entire project to last about five years. Plans include the relocation of the courthouse entrance to a pedestrian plaza built on the former Means Avenue. This will allow for better access from Church and Union streets. The project will update the nearly 50-year-old building and help with a continued increase in court traffic.
Renovations are underway at the P.M. Morris Building located at 50 Union Street South. The building was originally erected in 1903 by three sons of Phileman Milton Morris for whom the brothers named the new structure. The private developer will renovate the upper floors into 14 apartment units (13 one-bedroom and 1 two-bedroom). The developer expects to complete the project by the end of 2022. Apartment units will include hardwood floors and tile for bathrooms, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, views of historic downtown, surface parking, etc. The project will maintain leasable commercial space on the ground floor.
Plans are approved for the Cabarrus Tavern at 10 Cabarrus Ave. W., which will bring approximately 3,200 SF taproom and restaurant to downtown Concord.
The Cabarrus Center is open in Downtown Concord in the former Cabarrus Savings Bank Building next door to the Historic Cabarrus County Courthouse. Flywheel, a leader in creating co-working communities committed to growing businesses, designed and is now managing this historic space.
