M/I Homes To Build New Community in Tega Cay Area

M/I Homes of Charlotte, the top builder in Mecklenburg County last year based on number of building permits issued, is expanding in South Carolina and in southwest Charlotte.

The company will soon begin development of Hawk's Creek at Tega Cay, a community in York County, S.C., located on Highway 160, and has also agreed to purchase 59 home sites under development in Huntington Forest, a community in southwest Charlotte.

Hawk's Creek is expected to feature 159 home sites. Two different home plan collections will be available, including the M/I Homes Traditional Series with 3 to 5 bedrooms, 2 or 2 ½ baths, and 2-car garages. "Homes in this series have been popular with homeowners in Ardrey Woods in Ballantyne," says Tamara Lynch, vice president of marketing.

The company will also introduce a new Cottage Series in Hawk's Creek, with ranch-style homes from 2,000 to 3,200 square feet, featuring 3 to 5 bedrooms, 2 to 4 baths, 2-car garages, and two-story bonus space. The community is expected to include a pool and cabana. It's near Lake Wylie and close to I-77 and I-85. Fort Mill schools serve the area.

At Huntington Forest, located near Highway 49 in southwest Charlotte, home construction is expected to begin by mid-summer. Ranch and two-story homes will run from 2,300 to 4,000 square feet, featuring 3 to 6 bedrooms, 2 or 2 1/2 baths, and 2-car garages, according to Lynch. Outdoor amenities include a pool, community pavilion, playground and walking trails. Huntington Forest is close to Whitehall Business Park, the Town of Ayrsley, and Charlotte Douglas International Airport, with easy access to I-77 and I-485.

Homes in both communities will be 100% Energy Star Certified and will come with a 30-year Transferable Structural Warranty. Register to get more information about the two communities at or by calling 704-286-6498.
