Uptown Charlotte real estate is divided into Four different sections also known as “Wards”.
FIRST WARD (North East Corner)
Lovers of fine craftsmanship, classic architecture, contemporary creations and urban living will love Charlotte’s fantastic First Ward neighborhood.
It is nestled amongst the craftsman houses and town homes the garden district beckons banked by parks, East Trade Street, Tryon Street, the entertainment district and I-277. First Ward truly does have it all. Diversity reigns supreme, as this mixed income neighborhood continues to develop.
Additions such as Imaginon, and the restoration of the Carolina Theater anchor the arts firmly in the First Ward. The newly constructed UNCC uptown campus, First Ward Elementary and Trinity Episcopal School bring a rich, learning Mecca to this wonderful neighborhood. Past and present meld seamlessly in First Ward, with endless possibilities rising high in the future.
SECOND WARD (South East Corner)
The “Brooklyn” of Charlotte…
Known for decades as Brooklyn, home to a lively, active, and bustling urban community, Second Ward has gone through a remarkable revitalization in the years since it first earned its moniker.
Located in the southeast quadrant of uptown, Second Ward is bordered by East Trade Street, Tryon Street’s business and entertainment district and the I-277 urban highway loop.
This active neighborhood consists of elite condominium mid-rises, the Trust and the Ratcliffe, is anchored by The Green, a gorgeous park which sparkles with life, and has future planned towers at the EpiCenter and The Park. This makes Second Ward Uptown Charlotte condos near the park a hot commodity for those who like to balance nature with urban life.
The proposed 2nd Ward/Brooklyn Village will create a broad, diverse, inclusive neighborhood with different types of housing, shops, a brand new high school and plenty of restaurants and charming eateries.
Currently the new LYNX light rail has three stops in Second Ward; at Trade Street, 3rd Street/Convention Center, and the Westin Hotel.
In addition to Second Ward’s existing rich character, the history of NASCAR is now celebrated at the newly completed NASCAR Hall of Fame building.
Like Brooklyn, the revitalized gem of NYC, the Charlotte Second Ward is due to be a true gem and cornerstone neighborhood for the Queen City.
THIRD WARD (South West Corner)
A community in constant motion…
Home to young families, retirees, empty nesters, longtime residents and hard working professionals, the Third Ward is a sanctuary among the Sycamores.
One of the most diverse neighborhoods in Center City, this eclectic ward is bordered by the dynamic West Trade Street, I-77 and the Tryon Street’s business district.
Residents enjoy restored mill houses, charming Uptown town homes and gleaming new high rises. Third Ward boasts Center City’s only dog park for Charlotte pet owners, and the soon to be constructed Romare Bearden Park.
Nothing remains still in the Third Ward, as it is a community in constant motion. Johnson & Wales has made its home in the Third Ward, and its students can be found bustling down the streets amid the passing technology professionals.
This active and animated setting continues to grow and expand, as the Mint Museum, Knight Theater, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, and the Harvey Gantt African American Culture Center change the landscape of this wonderfully diverse neighborhood. With continued mixed-use development, including incredibly innovative housing options, Third Ward proves to be the perfect contemporary suburb for Uptown Charlotte living.
FOURTH WARD (North West Corner)
Quaint Victorian living meets urban style…
A premier uptown community, the historic Fourth Ward beautifully melds restored 100-plus-year-old Victorian homes, with luxury condominiums, urban apartments, parks and businesses.
Fourth Ward is gorgeously bordered by Tryon Street’s business and entertainment district, the historical Elmwood Cemetery, and activity along Trade Street.
Artfully bolstered by the gorgeous Fourth Ward Park, you can wander through narrow tree-lined streets, and become visually stimulated by the grand Victorian homes with gingerbread millwork, charming wrap around porches and beautifully old-fashioned gardens. The Uptown Charlotte condo real estate along and in proximity to the Fourth Ward park suits active Uptown lifestyles and nature-loving urbanites.
Historic Fourth Ward is dedicated to preserving its history. Every December brings a wildly popular tradition, the Fourth Ward Holiday Home Tour. The Fourth Ward Holiday Home Tour is a fantastic and unique tour of the neighborhood and its Victorian homes decked out in their entire holiday splendor.
With the recent development of Charlotte condominium towers like The Vue, the Avenue, as well as mid-rise condominium Garrison at Graham and Citadin, this rich and lush neighborhood is growing and rising to great heights.
Beautiful, stylish, quaint, along with continuous growth potential, helps to make Fourth Ward one of the most sought after, and desirable communities for Uptown Charlotte living today.
