Uptown Charlotte NC - Urban LIving at it's finestFabulous skyscrapers with state-of-the-art high-tech amenities offer inviting urban living options right in heart of Charlotte’s Center City.  However, there remains a very interesting history centering around Charlotte’s Uptown.  Our history began at the junction of Trade & Tryon Streets, forming the center of the ‘village’ where the original Indian paths crossed and created the city’s main arteries.  The 100 acres then, now 220 acres of blocks around the ‘square’ (the center of the city) were laid out in a nearly perfect grid of blocks, each being approximately 400 feet long.  Historic buildings remain in the Center City and tend to mix and mingle quite nicely with the buildings of today--even the luury skyscrapers.
