Uptown Charlotte Outlook

Hello Folks,

Long time reader, first time poster.

What are your thoughts on the pros and cons of living and owning in uptown?

I'm getting ready to sign a contract on a high-rise condo in uptown, and I'm getting the last minute jitters.

My thoughts:

Pros

1. 2nd largest banking city in the nation with a number of other Fortune 500 companies.

2. Growing population in a rather under-developed uptown means lots more room to grow.

3. Decent night life, great restaurants and developing necessities (e.g., Target near Kings Dr. and entertainment center in the Epicentre).

4. At $300-$500 per sq ft now, relatively well-priced and should appreciate well in 5-10 years.

5. Great sports and arts around uptown means there is a lot to do for all types of folks.

Cons (Risks)

1. Is $300-$500 per sq ft really well-priced?

2. Risk of one of the two banks leaving - although unlikely, but could Wachovia be bought and moved?

3. Is Charlotte in general a growing story of Atlanta 5-10 years ago or a bubble story with too much residential development?

I would greatly appreciate your comments on these thoughts or your new ideas!
