Development Of Charlotte's 'North End'

Charlotte’s growth to the south has been remarkable and now the focus is shifting North.  Major headway is being made on the Blue Line extension from Uptown out to UNC Charlotte and plans are being made for a North Tryon revitalization that holds the promise of transformation.  We explore the future of Charlotte’s “North End” along the North Tryon corridor and the possible impact of the light rail extension to the University.
