Why Center City

Charlotte Center City is the most vibrant urban center in the Southeast—a place set apart by decades of visionary city-building investments and a business friendly climate in the heart of the second-fastest-growing city in the nation.

More than 1,200 companies call Charlotte Center City home. It is a place where business strength intersects with quality of life, where tradition meets innovation on every corner. Uptown, Charlotte’s central business district is within 15 minutes of Charlotte-Douglas International, the world’s seventh busiest airport, and at the center of the region’s transit hub featuring light rail, streetcar and the largest urban bike sharing system in the southeast. 

But Uptown is more than the center of employment. It has a pulse and a vitality rich in culture where you can find the unexpected.
