Charlotte’s uptown is divided into four wards – former election districts. The intersection of Tryon and Trade streets divides uptown into the four wards. Third Ward is west of the junction.
Uptown is experiencing a condo boom as single professionals, downsizing retirees and even young families move in, craving the urban residential experience.
Projects in Third Ward include 230 South Tryon, a 13-story building where every unit has a private balcony and city views. There’s also Trademark, a 28-floor condo tower that’s just a stone’s throw from a Harris Teeter grocery store.
Third Ward is home to Gateway Village, which has a YMCA branch, and Johnson & Wales University.
