Have you noticed the number of apartment buildings sprouting up all over town?  How could you not?  They’re everywhere.  Charlotte is experiencing an apartment boom with over 10,000 units currently under construction and another 10,000 planned.  It’s an all-time high for the city, indicative of our rebounding economy and a change in tastes by younger people.  We talk about what’s going on, why and what it all means.
