North Tryon
Just to the North of Uptown Charlotte, North Tryon connects Uptown to the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.  North Tryon has a rich history as one of the main trading routes of the 1750's.  Home to the historic Rosedale neighborhood where one of the few remaining plantation houses is open to the public.  Many great business and infill development opportunities exist in the corridor.

2010 Business Corridor Benchmarking Analysis
The 2010 Business Corridor Benchmarking Analysis, a component of the 2012 Neighborhood Quality of Life Study, provides a foundation to assess the physical conditions and assets of the priority and other business corridors, sometimes encompassing the entire corridor, and other times encompassing only segments of the corridor where conditions varied within the corridor itself.

North Tryon Redevelopment Study (Nov. 2008)
In 2007 the City Council authorized a North Tryon Redevelopment Study Report to determine the highest use for revitalization of the corridor. The plan documents, among other things, existing conditions, identifies market opportunities, and evaluates alternative land development scenarios.   The study recommends four catalyst sites for redevelopment along with appropriate uses.
