Unified Development Ordinance

Recommended Posts


For example, in the Transit Urban Center district, the category that allows for the tallest buildings, developers have the right to build up to 130 feet. That translates to around 10 stories. But they can build up to 300 feet under the bonus height system, unless the building is within a quarter of a mile walking distance to a rapid transit station, in which case the height is unlimited.

Unlimited height within 1/4 mile of stations????  Is this new?  Could we get our first 1000 footer up in University then??

No but we could get another sweet Carvana. 

Also I dunno what is up with this mass delusion that Charlotte is going to land a 1000 footer any time soon. The newest buildings are barely cracking 35-40 stories aka 600-700’

I mean sure it’s fun to dream but c’mon.

Such tower would need to be almost two miles from any residential.  There is a height plane for TOD of an additional foot for every ten feet from residential.  Thanks to Dilworth's reaction to the Arlington, call this Charlotte's "pink tower" rule.
