Developer interest in Davidson’s Exit 30 area is running high: In the second project of its kind announced in recent months, a Charlotte developer is proposing a two-building, 4-story mixed-use development on Jetton Street, across from Davidson Commons.

Lat Purser and Associates/Little Gate LLC wants to build the mixed-use residential and retail project on 4.6 acres on the west side of Jetton Street, between the Exxon station and Gethsemane Baptist Church.
