Location

A Natural Wonder in West Charlotte

Close to Charlotte-area highways and interstates, a 15-minute drive from Uptown, a five-minute drive to Charlotte Douglas International Airport and a stroll from outdoor adventure, The River District provides residents and visitors ease of access to the best of city life and the outdoors. The neighboring Charlotte Douglas International Airport, the sixth-busiest airport in the world, is one of the top reasons many companies bring their businesses to Charlotte. Its proximity to The River District allows for an early morning kayak before heading Uptown for a board meeting, or a nonstop flight to Europe after an afternoon of mountain biking by the river.

With its organic blend of urban life and natural allure, this mixed-use walkable community will enhance the lives of its residents, workers and visitors while providing a lasting legacy for the region. Through stewardship of environmental, social and financial sustainability, The River District is designed to stand the test of time while improving lives along the way.
