Charlotte, NC Relocation Information: Economic Report

uptown construction

 

As I was showing a property today near the Uptown area in Dilworth, I noticed that the skyline included another new crane, which led me to follow the maze of new construction into the area to see which project was moving forward.  Almost 2.7 million commercial square feet, currently being erected in the Uptown area right now still won’t be enough to meet the demand of Charlotte’s growing economy.

The Charlotte Chamber of Commerce has compiled the newest set of numbers revealing that over 1,300 new or expanding firms are investing $2.3 billion in Charlotte’s future infrastructure.  With a vacancy rate of only 2%, commercial space in the Uptown area is very tight and with 14,648 jobs being created by these firms, Uptown residential space should soon be limited as well.  The numbers are a fairly good indicator of Charlotte’s continued economic growth. 

 

 

Some of the new jobs are as follows:

  • 4,436   Accommodations & food service industry
  • 3,000   Technical service
  • 2,210   Retail
  •    360   Manufacturing
  •  4,642   Healthcare, finance and administrative support

trade and tryon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 growth rates

The addition of these 14,648 jobs, translates into an increase in demand for housing as well.  Uptown residential buildings continue to add to Charlotte’s skyline in an effort to keep pace with increased job demand.  It remains to be seen if the residential new construction will, indeed, keep pace with the draw for Uptown’s preferred work/live environment. 

2008 is shaping up to be a stellar year for Charlotte, NC.

If I could give you a star I would. This series should be featured!

OR maybe you could start a new group about Relocation to Charlotte. I think that would be a great resource to anyone thinking of moving to the area and could really focus the information there!

Thanks Ed!  I did read yesterday that if you flag a post that you can suggest a little gold star!  I never knew that--but, did go out and make a suggestion that one I had read be 'gold-starred'!

Thanks, Renee!  We're trying to maintain our stats to show that the disturbing news is only speculative here in Charlotte!
