South End


The South End, known as “the heartbeat of Charlotte” and ideally situated along the Charlotte Light Rail System, is known for its quirky cool atmosphere with an economy that continues to thrive all while holding on to its distinct historic roots. Fueled by a spike in residential and commercial development, the South End has been named the #1 Busiest Submarket in the U.S.

The beloved neighborhood, originally a mining and mill town in the 1800s and only recently given the name “South End,” is now home to some of the city’s most vibrant local retail shops, art galleries, restaurants and breweries - many of which can be found residing in restored cotton mills and other industrial spaces.
