You’ll love the green space at The Conservancy

Seven Oaks Trail and Carolina Thread TrailYou may wonder where neighborhood names come from. In the case of The Conservancy, nothing could fit better. The name honors the Catawba Lands Conservancy for preserving 77 acres of Lake Wylie shoreline, called the Seven Oaks Preserve.

The Seven Oaks Trail is also part of the growing Carolina Thread Trail.

Thanks to The Catawba Lands Conservancy, people throughout McLean and beyond can experience this unique wilderness surrounding our neighborhood.

Chris Folk and Alan Banks

Evans Coghill Homes, one of the builders at McLean’s Overlake neighborhood, is known for its focus on high quality and excellent value.

That focus was honored in 2016 when Evans Coghill was named Charlotte’s Builder of the Year.

Given that success, you may be surprised to learn that the company’s founders met while building a Habitat for Humanity house, and that giving back to the community remains a top priority for founders Alan Banks and Chris Folk.

Widening starts on our main road to SC shopping

Pole Branch Road mapYork county, SC, is transforming rural two-lane Pole Branch Road into a three- to five-lane highway.

For those of you learning your way around the western shore of Lake Wylie, New Hope Road out of Gastonia turns into Pole Branch Road after entering South Carolina just south of McLean.

The widening will run from the NC/SC border to Landing Point, just north of the Landing Station shopping center at SC 49. The project will take two years and $35 million to complete.

The vastly improved roadway will make it much easier and safer to reach Publix supermarket and many other Lake Wylie, SC destinations.
