Charlotte's civic leaders visit Tampa

Recommended Posts

With 6,000 units coing down the pipeline and a downtown population expected to grow from 400 today to 10,000 by 2008, about 100 Charlotte business and civic leaders decided to come down to Tampa to check things out for themselves. They went away, pretty impressed with Ybor City and would like to see something similar take place in Uptown.

Yeah, I went to Ybor City, very nice latin flavor. I wish Charlotte had a nice dense cultural district like that, many latinos are moving to our area.

I think the Chamber should do something to promote better growth along Central Ave with the help of the Latino and Asian business owners. Hopefully, one day that Central Ave will be a cultural district like Ybor City.

I think our cultural areas will stay focused along the Central Ave. corridor. I love the whole area to be quite honest. It is truly an Urban enclave worth exploring.

Our problem with Central Ave is that it's elongated, it would be a district that is 7 miles long, other cities's cultural districts are more compacted, but then again Central Ave will have a streetcar on almost its entire length.
