Charlotte Communities

Ballantyne

Most folks considering a move to Charlotte have heard of Ballantyne. Once out in the “country,” Charlottes favorite ring city (think Tyson Corners VA 25 years ago) is strategically located at the intersection of Johnston Road and Interstate 485.

At the center is the Ballantyne Village shopping center, surrounded by Ballantyne Country Club…

Dilworth

Dilworth is named after one of Charlotte’s early boosters, Edward Dilworth Latta. He arrived as a young man in 1876, an early transplant from New York, and went into the clothing business. But before long he was in real estate development.

He could see the future and created the first suburb outside of the uptown core, and named it humbly Dilworth. Today, Dilworth stands…

Matthews

12 miles or just 25 minutes Southeast of Uptown, Matthews is one of Charlotte favorite suburbs. Known for its small town feel (think Pawnee) this one time farming community has been turned into an extended Charlotte suburb, with a revitalized downtown that includes a farmers market, and also a 100+ year old hardware store. At Christmas…

Myers Park

Myers Park, just outside the (277) inner loop, is today known for its tall trees, wide boulevards and beautiful homes with easy access to the city. It has been home to Charlotte’s elites for more than a century.

Today, physicians love its easy access to the largest hospitals in the state, Atrium (formerly Carolinas Medical) on Kings drive, and Novant, where Myers Park meets…

Plaza Midwood

Plaza Midwood (often called simply “Midwood”) runs along 10th St and Central Ave close to both Uptown. It’s also right next to NoDa, short for the North Davidson Arts District.

The area has developed quickly over the past 10 years as the city of Charlotte has grown and it has become especially popular among young people, artists of all ages, and with the light rail, more students as well…

Southpark

At the corner of Sharon Road and Fairview road sits Charlotte’s one and only Southpark mall. Home to Neiman Marcus and designer brands alike, Southpark, named it was south of Myers Park- Southpark  started as a subdivision, added a terrific shopping mall, and was once thought to be our future “downtown.”

Today, it is a distinct area, known for its fine restaurants…

South Blvd

Historic South End is located adjacent to Uptown Charlotte and the neighborhood of Dilworth as you head south out of town on South Blvd. The entire South Blvd area has developed quickly over the past 10 years or so since the launch of the Blue Line.

The Blue Line was the first light rail line in Charlotte, and it has truly transformed that side

Uptown

Uptown Charlotte is our vibrant city center with a wide variety of art, culture, dining, sports events and night life for everyone! If you’re visiting Charlotte for the first time, you will be surprised by how clean and new the city feels compared to other big cities.

Uptown Charlotte has always been a business-center

Greenways in the Queen City

When we moved to Charlotte we always heard people mentioning Greenways.  We didn’t quite understand what they were talking about.  We are familiar with parks, bike paths, but… Greenways?  This term was completely new to us.  With a little research and exploring – we quickly fell in love with one of Charlotte’s best attributes –
