The Copper District

Introducing the Copper District

A first-of-its-kind mixed-use development with small-town charm supercharged with 21st-century amenities.

Conveniently placed at the crossroads of the new I-40/I-540/Future I-42 connector and minutes from downtown Clayton, NC, the Copper District capitalizes upon vital connections to the nation’s second fastest growing large metro – and entry into one of the top ten fastest mid-sized growing counties in the US.

The tight-knit community of Clayton, the agricultural history of Penny Farm, the natural amenities of the rolling landscape, and the health District’s focus on wellbeing are effortlessly woven together into a walkable, mixed-use area whose modern amenities go hand-in-hand with its small-town living.  The Copper District will include vibrant areas for working, playing, and shopping including iconic landmarks, mixed-use offices, diverse shared spaces, and multiple outdoor dining options.

The Copper District will also include peaceful trails with convenient access points for experiential moments for visitors and residents alike.  Also included is a diverse residential commons with performative landscapes, a variety of housing options, and intimate dimensions.

Construction on the Copper District’s first phase is slated to start in 2023.
