We had the pleasure of spending the morning with Bob Morgan (@CLTChamberBob) CEO of the Charlotte Chamber & Marcus Jones the City Manager for the City of Charlotte. Both gentlemen providing exciting news about growth, city vision & Bob even brought along a vibrant Jetson’s style rendering of what the city skyline might look like in 2040. Think the sky is the limit, or maybe even the sky transportation!
Bob Morgan has a wonderful way of painting Charlotte’s future when he talks. He weaves planning for the future into understanding the current strides & stalls. Great strides have been made over the past decade which have resulted in Charlotte being the 18th largest city in the US, inviting travelers to the 5th largest, international airport (and growing) & home to many national and worldwide headquarters. Leading the way on the technology front, Charlotte hopes to continue being the new home to companies such as Google. The projects presented about 2040 were pretty phenomenal. Look out, Charlotte!
Marcus Jones brought a wonderful synergy to the room, as he spoke about the concept of selling the city. Charlotte is turning 250 in November & there are plans to launch a fun campaign to really highlight were we have been, all the beauty of the city now and of course all that is one the horizon. So be on the look out to learn a little more about the city. (We hope to be doing a little spin on that ourselves.) He presented 10 ways the city was working toward making Charlotte the best is can be. One of the key ideas we loved was the idea of “City Neighborhoods” these little pop up coffee, grocery shops that would make neighborhoods a little more walkable & have their own personalities.
Excited to see and be a part of “investing comprehensively on the future growth of Charlotte – Bob Morgan”. As always, we would be delighted to take you on a tour of our beautiful city, find a neighborhood for your lifestyle & ultimately find the ideal place for you to call home in the Queen City.
