Land purchased to support development of home demand in a desirable location.    


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Walton Global, a leading asset management and global real estate investment company, announced today its new land acquisition of 124 acres in Gastonia, North Carolina. Known as the Tucker property, the parcel is slated for single-family homes in a flourishing region with close proximity to Belmont and Charlotte.

Located north of Union New Hope Road at Rufus Ratchford Road, Tucker property transportation corridors in the area provide easy access to the Interstate 85 and 485 freeways to the east. The property is just 11 minutes from Belmont, 20 minutes to Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, 30 minutes to Uptown Charlotte and within a 45 minute drive to most of the Charlotte MSA.

“The Tucker property is an opportune parcel given the growing housing demand in this area across first-time buyers and move up buyers,” said Barry Dluzen, executive vice president of Walton Global. “With the abundance of resources in the surrounding area, we believe Tucker will serve a thriving residential community for years to come once its developed.”

The property site location is ideal for new residents, providing convenient access to a variety of upscale shops and restaurants in a historical downtown setting, major employment centers and highest-rated schools in Gaston County.

With the growing population and need for housing in North Carolina, Walton Global remains committed to its investment in the region and delivering exceptional real estate projects. The Tucker property joins Walton Global’s eight additional assets throughout the state with three properties in Gaston County that are available including Willowside Grove, a 132-acre property, Dutchman’s Creek, a 619-acre property and Pinnacle Center, a 631-acre property. The company is continuing to search for additional land acquisition opportunities throughout the state of North Carolina.
