Growth And Development In Charlotte Neighborhoods

A few weeks ago, we spent an hour talking about Charlotte’s apartment boom.  Ten thousand units are set to go online soon with 10,000 more in the planning stages. These buildings are changing the face of Charlotte and that is concerning to many – particularly in neighborhoods like Plaza Midwood, NoDa and Elizabeth.  Some long-time local businesses are being forced to consider relocating and that promises to change the character of those neighborhoods. We explore that in this episode.
