Big residential development shot down

The Mooresville Board of Commissioners unanimously denied a Charlotte real estate firm’s plans for a major residential project in the Iredell County town.

Cambridge had proposed to develop 182 attached townhomes and 117 detached homes at the site. The project was named Witherspoon Woods.
