River District Development Update


River District is a master planned community that embraces its natural features, resources, preservation areas and open space as the principle organizing element in its neighborhoods, mixed use town center, employment, gateway and transitional districts. River District will be a vibrant and diverse place that fosters unprecedented economic vitality, diverse residential opportunities and a thriving built environment amidst hundreds of acres of preserved open space. Unlike anywhere else in Charlotte, the unique location captures the natural beauty that extends from the Catawba River while maximizing the convenience of proximity to the global serving Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
