Although not the capital of North Carolina, Charlotte has been nicknamed the Queen City. It’s big, it’s bold, it’s diverse, it’s fast-paced, and it’s growing. If you’ve ever been downtown, you’ll know that the skyline almost always shares its attractive silhouette with cranes and other construction machinery.
Charlotte is constantly under development, adding new buildings, new spaces, and new opportunities all the time. In fact, we’ve discussed some of the upcoming construction and development projects in a previous post, but there was simply too much to cover. Let us introduce you to a few more exciting prospects that you can look forward to in the years to come.
- Lowe’s Tech Center. Charlotte’s South End will see construction of a new 23-story office building, commissioned by Lowe’s retail. The company is looking to expand their IT department, and these office spaces will allow for the growth they want.
- The Square. The Square at South End is actually a multipurpose plaza. The Square combines a new office building, restaurant and café, retail shops, and quick access to Wilmore Centennial Park. Overall, it’s certain to be a hub of activity, situated in one of Charlotte’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
- Centre South. Much like The Square, Centre South promises a bit of everything for everyone. Centre South will offer high-class residential spaces and amenities to match, as well as office spaces and access to the brand-new Centre Park. Of course, location is everything, and Centre South will offer quick access to local restaurants, entertainment, and other activities.
- Duke Energy Plaza. Duke Energy has announced plans for a new corporate headquarters in Uptown Charlotte. This is all part of the company’s long-term plans to consolidate and reduce their footprint by over 50%. Once completed, the tower situated on the plaza will be one of the tallest in the city, and across the state, at 40 stories tall.
Looking at this list, it’s clear to see that the South End is the next up-and-coming neighborhood, with ambitious visions for the future of Charlotte’s infrastructure and a bold redefinition of the city skyline. Whether you’re a Charlotte native or you’re looking to move in, there’s never been a better time to be a part of the Queen City.
