Charlotte area "ring cities"

Kannapolis and Salisbury would be good options once Gateway Station opens. You could hop on the Amtrak and be Uptown in about 30 minutes from Kannapolis or 45 minutes from Salisbury. It’s not so easy with the current station though since connecting to an Uptown-bound CATS bus requires dangerously darting across N. Tryon with no crosswalk or sidewalks.

I’m definitely a fan of Salisbury. Seemingly far, but not really. Plus it’s got a great downtown and Main Street that still gives me a great vibe of times gone by.

Not far once the widening of I-85 is complete I think next year from Kannapolis south of Salisbury.  Southern Rowan county is really starting to grow now.    Kannapolis is  city on the rise with a complete new downtown with ballpark, older buildings mixed with new apartments and a brewery.

Plus the housing is markedly cheaper and full of character. I love the Victorian and Old Queen Anne style homes that litter that town. I just saw a sweet house sale for $140k that was simply stunning just off of Main Street with wrap around porch and all the bells and whistles. Granted it might have needed a little work but it was 2600 square feet and a $140k!

$140k!!!!!

Prices are really low in Salisbury for sure and Gastonia prices are good  too.  Prices fall off in this area once you are Plus 1 county away from Charlotte that means Rowan, Stanly, Cleveland etc. or northern Iredell, eastern Union etc.

How great would it be if all these towns were connected by rail? I remember taking the train from Harrisburg to Philadelphia and going through these really neat towns between them.

Hub and spoke transit baby! Game Changer!!!  :tw_glasses:
