An Atlanta-based developer announced plans Thursday to build 350 apartment units in Lower South End.

Pollack Shores Real Estate Group bought the land at 200 East Cama St. and plans to develop a luxury apartment community, the group said.

Construction is expected to begin this month on the property just 600 feet from the Scaleybark light rail station.

Pollack Shores expected to open the apartments, including a dog park, fitness center and community library, in the fall of 2020.

Pollack Shores is developing 1,000 apartment units total throughout the Charlotte area, including apartment buildings in Steele Creek and Indian Land, S.C.
