Experience Center City

Charlotte’s Center City is a dynamic, perpetually changing place. The Uptown, South End, and Midtown districts are filled with diverse housing options; arts, culture, and sports; innovative small businesses and industry-leading corporations; abundant hospitality amenities; and outdoor spaces that range from hidden rooftop patios to lush green spaces. Center City’s beloved neighborhoods are thriving places that provide a mosaic of experiences for residents, workers, and visitors.


In Uptown, culture, arts, sports, dining, entertainment, living and business all intertwine as people converge to take advantage of every moment and opportunity. It's the place where we come together to celebrate holidays and victories but also the place to voice our truths as we face our community's biggest challenges. With an understanding of our history and hopeful, inclusive and bold plans for our future. Uptown isn't just a place to work or live or play. It's the place where we are better together and life is continually at its fullest, inviting everyone who wants to be part of it all.
