Sounds like we'd better plan a weekend to Asheville!!!

There are a couple of large Architect firms in Charlotte. Plus they are trying to get young professionals to move here. They have a city committee about it. The nightlife in center city is great. Plenty of places to go and events most weekends where they close of streets. As to housing. A friend lives in a one bedroom flat in center city. The unit is in the mid 100's. So it is possible to live there. And he does have parking.

Default Monroe - near Charlotte

Since you are an architect, you may appreciate Monroe... It's dripping with character and great historic buildings...You can buy a historic home (late 1800's to early 1900's) for under 200k-up to 300k.... Monroe is an up-and-coming area.... Many commute to charlotte (20 - 40 mins, depending where you're going)... Come on down!

We too have friends Tampa who moved down there 4 years ago. They're dying to come back to the Charlotte area.
