The Department of Transportation took approximately 5.63 acres for completion of the I-485 loop around Charlotte; deposit of $347,575.00; settlement of $1,505,000.00 ($1,157,425 or 333% increase).
A total taking of 3.656 acres of commercially zoned land being used for residential purposes with a single-family residence. DOT sought to have the Court exclude the commercial zoning from consideration, but the Court denied the DOT's motion. This was originally a partial taking but the DOT amended, with consent of the property owner after filing an inverse condemnation counterclaim, to take the uneconomic remainder tract.
