Charlotte, NC Economic Overview

Location Photo

With a population of just over 2.5 million, Charlotte is the second-largest city in the southeastern U.S. The city sprawls over almost 300 square miles, boasts 199 neighborhoods that radiate from Uptown (the Central Business District), and is the third-largest financial center in the country, after New York City and San Francisco. In addition to financial services, the Charlotte MSA is host to a variety of food services, energy and transportation businesses. Combined with a growing, well-educated workforce and a business-friendly environment, it's easy to see why the Charlotte commercial real estate market is in such high demand from both tenants and investors.

Bank of America is headquartered in Charlotte and Wells Fargo bases its East Coast operations here. The city is host to nine Fortune 500 companies and is home to nearly 4,500 manufacturing companies across almost every major business segment. Charlotte is a major transportation hub and distribution center. Nearly 60% of the population of the U.S. is within a 10-hour drive or a 2-hour flight. Charlotte Douglas airport is the sixth-busiest in the U.S., is a major hub for American Airlines and is serviced by both national and international carriers.

Charlotte, NC Commercial Real Estate Market

Uptown/Center City is considered Charlotte's central business district. Since the 1980s, Uptown has seen massive investment and infrastructure development and is home to Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Duke Energy and the Hearst Corporation, along with a multitude of hotels, restaurants and upscale condominium projects.

The Charlotte commercial real estate market encompasses over 136 million square feet of industrial space, nearly 60 million square feet of office space and almost as much retail space. The population of Charlotte is expected to hit the 3 million mark by 2030, up from the 2.5 million residents today. As a result of this increasing demand, development in Charlotte is booming across all segments - in particular industrial and mixed-use (retail, office, residential) projects, with over 2 million square feet under construction in the Charlotte office market alone, in 2017.

A prime example of mixed-use development is the River District project, in the Dixie-Berryhill area. Located within 15 minutes from Charlotte Douglas International Airport and Center City Charlotte, this 1,400-acre enterprise will include 8 million square feet of office space, 500,000 square feet of retail space, 4,000 residential units and a hotel.

Low vacancy rates in Charlotte are keeping rents at historical highs, as tenants grab space where they can find it. Spears Manufacturing and Mueller have a significant presence on the Charlotte industrial market, while Bank of America has been expanding its footprint in the Charlotte office market.
