Business Corridor Revitalization
Strong urban business districts not only impact the overall health of our community, but they also help strengthen the residential neighborhoods surrounding them, providing employment opportunities with goods and services to commuters and neighborhood residents. 

Priority Business Corridors
In 2007, with help from community residents, area businesses and non-profit representatives, Charlotte City Council approved a Business Corridor Revitalization Strategic Plan and identified the following five priority business corridors:

The Business Corridor Plan was updated in 2012.  Read the 2012 Business Corridor Plan Update.

Reports & Studies
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. 
Transit Oriented Development (TOD)
A component of quality and sustainable corridor revitalization is Transit Oriented Development (TOD).  The purpose of TOD is to create compact, walkable communities centered around high quality transportation systems, including a  mixture of uses in close proximity including office, residential, retail, and civic uses. For example, the Lynx blue line along South Blvd has generated more than $1.8B of private development.  The City has also taken an active role in the development of the Scaleybark station area.
