Charlotte's Lake Norman Area

Recommended Posts


Great Pics! It's nice to see how the area has preserved what was there, but has also made itself more liveable through better mixed use zoning, lots of sidewalks, and new development.

monsoon, the second part is even better, I must admit!!! Cornelius seems like an impressive place to live and it appears that there is a lot going on in terms of renewal and revitalization. I love the new sidewalks and the preserved buildings. I also loved the live-work units in the following picture:

Great tour monsoon! It's been a while since I've been up that way; it's nice to see areas that I don't have a chance to visit often!

From what I've heard, that part of Charlotte is home to many of the rich bankers and NASCAR people. I like those sidewalks! There's some nice development there and I find it amazing that a ride into the city on transit is only a quarter! WOW! I like places like the barbershop! I've been in that area a few times and it is nice! I've only had my feet in the lake once. The lake had huge rocks and I was trying to walk on them with barefeet! :o Very sharp and painful rocks! :blink: I remember a nice country store somewhere on the way there. I don't remember the name of it, but it was very close to the lake and was very cool! On my first trip I had to stop and ask for directions to a public access area on the lake and they were very helpful. Thanks for sharing these!

The development in the first couple pictures looks nice, but it would be better if it didn't have those designated angled parking spaces.

Why not angled parking?
