766-home subdivision approved behind Gaffney outlets, largest 'in 50 years' (3)

GAFFNEY— Construction is scheduled to begin in July on a 766-lot subdivision at Nancy Creek Road and Hyatt Street, Gaffney Mayor Randy Moss said.

The new development will be located behind the Gaffney Outlet Marketplace adjacent to Interstate 85, which has been a popular destination for shoppers since opening in 1998. Moss said the marketplace has rebounded from the pandemic and the new subdivision will help further boost sales at the marketplace once completed.

"We are expecting housing growth to continue and things have taken off tremendously in the last year with interest from developers," Moss told The Post and Courier. "Housing growth is expected to continue."

The Gaffney Planning Commission approved the new subdivision Fox Creek's plans on April 12, City Administrator James Taylor said. Taylor said D.R. Horton will build the new subdivision on 241 acres. Permitting for the project will continue, including the builder working to obtain a land disturbance permit, he said.

"It's the largest development we have approved in 50 years," Taylor said. "We are having inquiries from a couple of other developers about (potential) projects and seeing a lot of development activity at this point and time. We are anticipating tremendous growth over the next couple of years."

Another development is planned at Twin Lake Road and Overbrook Drive. Moss said the city plans to annex property from Cherokee County for a 365-home subdivision at the site. The name of the new subdivision has not yet been selected.
