Building Modern Charlotte


Building Modern Charlotte Many people helped to build modern Charlotte but if you had to point to just two people whose vision and impact was the greatest, it would be Hugh McColl and Harvey Gantt. Both worked together and individually to revitalize the city's urban core and build a downtown that is both beautiful and an attraction to businesses and residents. They spoke about that process with Hugh McColl and Harvey Gantt at a recent convention of city planners. We hear that conversation, today. This conversation was pre-recorded at the International Downtown Association convention in uptown Charlotte.

Guests Hugh McColl - Former Chairman of Bank of America

Harvey Gantt - Former Mayor of Charlotte and an architect and planner
