Charlotte’s center city, known as Uptown, is divided into four wards, spreading out from the intersection of Trade and Tryon Streets. After earlier efforts stalled, a push for Uptown residential living took hold in the late 1990s and the city started blooming. With an influx of new condo buildings Uptown became a true urban oasis rather, not just a place to work.
Since then Charlotte has become a vibrant metropolitan city, known for easy navigation and a clean, crisp feeling. Filled with exciting urban nights spots, multiple museums, bustling theater and art exhibitions, this Southern Lady has come to life. Now all four Wards are coming together, flowing seamlessly from one to another with an unbelievable amount of carefree upscale residential condo towers coming online in the next few years, along with more shopping, entertainment and dining venues.
The most popular ward for uptown living, Fourth Ward is walkable to many dining and shopping spots along Graham and Poplar Streets and points between. Fourth Ward, which encompasses Discovery Place and Fourth Ward Park, also offers the most housing options from multiple high-rise condos with all the amenities to historic Victorian homes that line picturesque streets.
