Meet the Team

Historic West End


The Knight Foundation awarded CCCP a 3-year, $1.5 million grant to fund this work. Initially, CCCP will focus economic development efforts in the West Trade Street/Beatties Ford Road corridor from I-77 to NC-16, as shown below. However, the impact of this work extends outside this corridor, so CCCP will seek to engage stakeholders beyond this area.

CCCP worked closely with community leaders and received feedback on a tactical framework organized into three themes: Engage, Prosper and Enjoy. The Historic West End Tactical Plan is organized by those themes and will be used to coordinate, stimulate and lead redevelopment efforts in Historic West End.


Key community leaders invited Charlotte Center City Partners to serve as the catalyst organization to further define and implement meaningful and sustainable economic development in the Historic West End.

COMMUNITY

Building a vibrant local economy while creating fun, safe, and memorable places

LIVE

Historic West End, home to some of Charlotte’s oldest African American neighborhoods as well as some of the oldest racially integrated neighborhoods, promises a diverse and lively living experience to new and long-time residents. Homes in West End date from the first half of the 20th century and give the neighborhoods their distinctive character.

WORK

Located one mile from Uptown, Historic West End is conveniently located to center city while brimming with its own energy and potential. The Charlotte B-Cycle station located at Johnson C. Smith University, offers a convenient bike share option for the active commuter and the Gold Rush trolley line runs directly to Uptown at no cost to riders. These options will soon be complemented by the LYNX Gold Line street car when Phase 2 is completed on the west side in 2020.

PLAY

The opportunities to enjoy life in West End are as varied as the art, food, and culture who seek them out. Mosaic Village, a popular mixed use development provides the convenience of getting a haircut at No Grease Barbershop, and the Skyline Terrace offers the best unobstructed views of Uptown Charlotte and a great place to host a wedding or community event. Five Points Plaza is new grassroots public realm space home to Charlottes’ first breakfast food truck rally – Savory Saturdays and to the Latibah Collard Green Museum’s Underground Railroad Exhibit.
