Camp North End is a 75 acre redevelopment site on Statesville Avenue where Ford Model Ts were built and Hercules missiles were assembled. Developers call it an "adaptive reuse project" that is becoming " a catalytic hub of innovation and ideas". Numerous industrial buildings have more than 1,000,000 square feet of space "for work, artistic expression, dining and hospitality, entertainment, recreation and community building."
Looking to attract tenants builders are adding coffee shops, grocery stores or bars on the ground floor. A Whole Foods Market is one such amenity going in at the Novel Stonewall Station in uptown Charlotte.
11030 David Taylor Drive is currently an undeveloped field off West Mallard Creek Church Road but is one of several locations where developers are planning big new, suburban apartment complexes. Even as attention focuses on the high profile sites next to the light rail and uptown office towers, developers are turning their focus to the suburbs, where there's cheaper land and plenty of demand.
