We have long known how special McLean is: Our master-planned community in charming small-town Belmont spans hundreds of acres and 5 miles of pristine Lake Wylie shoreline.

Now the region’s top business publication has discovered us, as well, and our unique position among Lake Wylie and Lake Norman waterfront neighborhoods.

“With large tracts of available land on Wylie and Norman tapped out, the 670-acre McLean in Belmont is delivering some of the region’s last custom lots on the water,” The Charlotte Business Journal wrote recently.

The Business Journal report shares how a textile magnate’s former estate is being meticulously transformed into three distinct neighborhoods interwoven with woods, parks, trails, neighborhood amenities and waterfront vistas. Read the full article, and visit McLean soon!
