See our construction boom in photos

constructionwebFrom a new I-85 bridge to the Famous Toastery restaurant at University Place, construction crews have been busy across our central business district – and that doesn’t even count interior renovations you can’t see, the Blue Line Extension or numerous projects at UNC Charlotte.

We’ve put together this photo guide of the action, organized by segments of our municipal service district.

You can get detailed information on all of the major construction, renovations, transportation projects and property sales over the last two years in the University City Partners 2016 Economic Development Report. To view download the full report, CLICK HERE.

  1. A lot of photos of retail, hotel, and enterprises… we really need more of this to enhance our neighborhood?
    How about cultural buildings to house museums, art galleries, symphonies, playhouses? It is out of control. No wonder folks interested in culture have to drive and spend down to the South End. No consideration for the quality of life………sad.
