Charlotte's North End is a collection of new and old neighborhoods just north of uptown with about 9,000 residents. It's seeing a flood of new investment driven by its proximity to uptown and the buzz around the redevelopment of a massive factory complex off Statesville Avenue.

A main building on the site once was a Ford Model T factory and Army missile plant. More recently, it was a Rite-Aid distribution center.

WFAE has a new initiative called Ask Us to let our audience suggest story ideas. On our website, we're asking what you're curious about in the Charlotte region, its life, and culture. We recently put another set of five questions to a vote – letting you decide the story you wanted us to cover. The winner came from Steve Tekola, of east Charlotte. He talked to WFAE's David Boraks.

A New York developer wants to breathe new life into a historic industrial park off Statesville Avenue north of uptown.  Camp North End would be a creative hub, with offices, apartments, shops and restaurants, as well as space for light industrial and educational uses.
