A lot of realtors will use "Ballantyne Area", in order to increase property value, but there are some legal ramifications if someone is selling a property as "in Ballantyne" and it isn't.

Before 1995, it was called "Piper Glen Area", and Ballantyne Commons Parkway WAS Providence Road West all the way to McKee Road.
Are you saying there are "legal" boundries to "in" Ballantyne? I really thought it was simply an area. I'd be surprised if there are actual Liber & folio numbers for "Ballantyne". Very interesting .
Do any of our Realtor friends know the answer.

Doorway, I do believe there are specific boundries because unlike other areas where a neighborhood grew into an "area" (like Cotswold or the Arboretum), Ballantyne was a very well planned development. Living off Ardrey Kell near Rea is not considered Ballantyne but is considered the "Blakeney" area (as I'm sure you know ). But the other end of Ardrey Kell near 521 may in fact be part of the Ballantyne boundries - that's the one border I'm not exactly sure of

Thanks Loves!! I remember reading a coffee table book on Ballantyne in a hotel when we first came here to find a place to live. It spoke mostly of the business center and the resort and the developers vision of the area. Had I known I was going to live in the area, I might have paid more attention. When people ask where I live I usually say in Ballantyne, I think I better say Ballantyne area from now on so I don't dis anyone from the hood.

Ballantyne is a master-planned community with specific boundaries. If you live in “Ballantyne proper” you likely pay Ballantyne homeowner association dues. You likely live in a subdivision/neighborhood within Ballantyne (i.e. Ballantyne Meadows) that is part of the larger Ballantyne association. You probably pay both associations (but your subdivision/neighborhood may collect on behalf of both).

Several neighborhoods adjacent to Ballantyne, but not part of the Ballantyne master plan, can be considered “Ballantyne area”.

Ballantyne was developed by Bissell Development. Bissell Companies

Ballantyne "area" has many apartments and condos. Most people that say they live in Ballantyne live in the "area" and not...Ballantyne Counry Club. Quite a difference (IMO).

It is simply a well planned development in south Charlotte.

So there is no writing Ballantyne on your mailing address??
Isn't it also very commercialized? I always think of the hotel.

No, you just have a Charlotte address, but a very NICE one

It is NOT very commercialized - it is a nice mixture of homes, condo's, retail and office space.
