North End is positioned to be the significant catalyst for change to connect the North Uptown Area and NoDa, providing a strong interconnection of streets, transit and greenways with complementary housing, office and retail offerings. With these many facets forming and influencing one another, North End is set to thrive and grow, living up to its vision of an innovative, creative, dynamic, vibrant city within the city of Charlotte.  North End is a key component of the City of Charlotte’s Applied Innovation Corridor, which is planned to provide infrastructure investments to spur economic growth and facilitate recruitment of high-tech industries to this area.

Currently under way in North End is Camp North End, which includes the former Hercules Industrial Park and Ford Assembly Plant, which later became a missile plant during World War II; along with successful community transformative projects such as the Brightwalk Community and the Fire Department Headquarters which have built upon the area’s unique residential character and industrial history.

This program will be hosted in the heart of North End at Camp North End Boiler Yard Event Space, and feature discussions around the vision for the area, the catalytic projects underway and thriving opportunities.  Following the discussion, attendees will have an opportunity to tour the Boiler Yard and enjoy refreshments.

Panelists:

  • Damon Hemmerdinger, ATCO
  • Varian Shrum, ATCO / Camp North End
  • Rob Phocas, City of Charlotte
  • John Butler, Charlotte Mecklenburg Housing Partnership

Moderator:

  • Nate Doolittle, LandDesign
