While factory workers in the Northeast were housed in brick tenements, Charlotte’s mill workers lived in individual bungalows with neighbor-friendly front porches and skyline view of Uptown. Located on the East side of the 277 Loop, Belmont/Villa Heights is Charlotte’s most affordable up-and-coming neighborhood, just a stone’s throw from Uptown in one direction and NoDa in the other (Imagine walking to Amelie’s French bakery). The community is currently undergoing revitalization similar to other rebirths that took place in Plaza Midwood and NoDA. The beneficiary of a Hope 6 Grant, Belmont has recently seen an influx of new condos and single-family homes being built at Seigle Point. The Lynx Light Rail extension, currently under construction, will connect Belmont to SouthEnd, Uptown and the University area.

If you are looking to make a difference in a neighborhood with strong roots and a promising future, don’t miss Belmont/Villa Heights.
