Charlotte's Urban Core And Economic Development


9:00, Tuesday, January 27, 2015

A headline in last Friday’s paper read: “Center City Growth is ‘Explosive.’”  We are undergoing a boom not unlike what preceded the recession, one that promises to remake the face of uptown, one that will add nearly 2,000 hotel rooms and nearly 7,000 new housing units. We take a closer look at what this new growth will mean for the city, for those living and working in the urban core and more.
