Charlotte Condos…Many Fine Choices Close to Center City
It seems that most of the hoopla for condominiums has been directed to Charlotte’s Center City. Questions like, “Are there too many being built?? Comments like. “The price per square foot is going through the roof.? Yes, the towers get taller, the amenities get glitzier…and now some of the glitzier towers are being delayed…what’s a buyer to do?
In taking pictures for our eReports and the Tops report on CondoCanDo.com in the near to uptown neighborhoods, there are some stunning choices. First, Charlotte is a beautiful city and we tend to sprawl. But we are not Atlanta. Our Uptown is really small. Perhaps that is part of our charm. We are still people sized. In nearby neighborhoods like Myers Park and Cotswold, folks should check out condos like Rosewood and 420 Queens, take a ride down Fenton Placeto one Of Brian Speas finished projects and see if there are any resales. They all boast beautiful construction, classic designs, and are within walking distance of shopping and a short hop to Uptown.
We are blessed to have such exquisite communities as Chipping on Camden, a real jewel off Providence…and then,of course, peppered along Roswell off Queens there are older and many more newer condominiums. And even a conversion or two. So while Uptown has the razzle, our regal older neighborhoods have some new gems worth checking out. You can see recent photos of The Crillon, Boxwood, and Rosewood on our Tops Report on www.condocando.com.
My intention is not to wag my finger at uptown…we are all excited to see and feel the vibrancy in the center city. Professional sports, Imaginon, The Children’s Theatre, the birth of Wachovia’s art complex, restaurants and pubs, the news of the Epi-Center, the swoosh of the light rail…all worthy of celebration. I think sometimes, stopping to smell the roses is a rich experience…if in stopping we look around to see the other flowers as well.
Back to work.
