First Ward Activity

As I indicated in my last newsletter, The Marsoun Report, the UNCC Classroom Building in downtown Charlotte is about to begin as reported in the Charlotte Business Journal as well as the Charlotte Observer. The unique cantilevered architecture is designed to look like a stack of books!

The building should begin construction within 60 days, and is scheduled to be tied in with an underground parking garage and First Ward Park see here

Growth out of the current economic crisis will start from events like this. Daniel Levine's plans for a First Ward Village will begin to unfold as construction begins. Nothing generates hope more than activity, and there should be plenty to go around.

While the Light Rail extension is not finalize yet, it will pass next to this new building and will generate yet more activity along this corridor.
