Catalyst Apt. next to Panther Stadium.... REALLY you would'nt think living in an upscale condo
would have such problems! but then I'm a country girl, 4 acres in the middle of TN and moved to the middle of the city. The noise bounces off the buildings. Thanks for listening to my rant. I didn't have my coffee that day.

I can think of quite a few areas where those complaints would be valid concerns.

I worked in Huntersville. Almost everyone I talked to was transplanted from the north. Mostly from upstate NY. Nothing against the funny way they talk but I loved it when a southern would come in.

Default Build Up the College Atmosphere

I am old and way beyond hanging out in college bars, but when drive through that area I also think there is no college atmosphere around there. It seems like a boring area to be a college area. I could be wrong, I didn't go there.
Athens, Georgia has a great area that feels like good college town. I didn't go there either just stayed the night there once. Charlotte needs an area like that.

Charlotte (or most midsize cities) could never be a college town like Chapel Hill or Athens. However, Charlotte missed out on an urban school environment by not keeping the school downtown. It was originally located near uptown then moved to it's current location in the 60's (land).

Even being located in the burbs they could've created an urban schools atmosphere like Towson State on the outskirts of Baltimore. UNC Charlotte was primarily a commuter school and just now building a strong on-campus student population.

Maybe areas around the new LRT will be able to drum up some urban density area or street that will have a flavor of collegiate eateries, etc.

Have you read any of the dozens of existing posts about Charlotte? Are there still some specific questions you have after doing so? As an fyi, you'll probably get much better responses if you ask something specific and start a new thread, rather than tack something very general on the end of a years old thread.
