Lake Norman Chamber to focus on Langtree at the Lake

Steve Welly

Langtree at the Lake will be the subject this Friday of the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce’s Focus Friday business briefing at the Chamber located at 19900 W Catawba Avenue in Cornelius.  The program will be held Friday, Oct 26th 8-9:30 a.m.  Steve Welly, the President and Chief Operating Officer of RL West and Langtree Development will give an overview of the project.  Approximately 47,000 square feet of retail space is being built in the southwest quadrant of the I-77/Langtree Road interchange, bordering on the lake. Four of the first seven buildings to be constructed are currently under construction.

The project was the recent subject of a special “Newsmakers” breakfast in Cornelius two weeks ago when the developers unveiled plans to build an “EthoSphere,” a 14-story, 306,000 square foot building. According to Business Today, “The EthoSphere will be one of the tallest buildings in the area – the Hilton at University Place has only 12 stories—and will brand Langtree at the Lake as the “Gateway to Iredell,” a phrase the backers of the 400-acre Langtree project have used to describe Langtree.”

Joining Welly is Mooresville Mayor Miles Atkins who will share how the project will impact Mooresville and change the dynamics of that lake community.  Jerry Broadway, Executive Director of the Lake Norman Regional Economic Development Corporation will also speak to the regional economic impact of Langtree at the Lake on Cornelius, Davidson, and Huntersville and add an additional resource when regional EDCs market the lake to primary job creators and corporations.

Welly started his real estate career in Toledo, OH in 1983 in the brokerage business and soon became the head of a regional brokerage firm/investment sales department. In December of 1999 he became President and COO of Rudolph/Libbe Properties.  Rudolph/Libbe Properties merged with Park West Development in April 2009 and RL West Properties was formed, with Steve serving as President and COO of the new firm.   He has developed real estate throughout the Midwest as well as North and South Carolina. RL West is based in Sylvania, Ohio with an office in Mooresville, NC.
