I was out riding my scooter today and decided to go exploring west of I-77 for the first time in a couple years to see what had changed.

I was surprised to see that the lines of houses along these roads (BF and RF) and neighborhoods that were so recently boarded up, condemned, and lacking windows are now being fixed up and flipped left and right! I saw a few good looking craftsman style flips along Rozzelles Ferry that looked great!

I love the old buildings and homes on this side of town, so I am glad to see this area starting to clean up a bit, although I am not sure what areas around the city are going downhill in response to this. Oh, the joys of gentrification!

I love riding my scooter looking at neighborhoods as well you can get a real feel of the neighborhood and look more at some of the details vs in a car.

West Charlotte has come along way it use to look like east Charlotte does now or Plaza Midwood, North Charlotte (noda too) way back in the 90's.

I think that areas like you mention will one day be all you see on this forum of people asking about that area due to they want to move there. YOu can get some great skyline views and it really close to uptown plus you dont have to get on the interstate.

I am confused about your comparison to Plaza Midwood and NoDA. Please explain. Are you saying that West Charlotte used to be as bad as these areas, or that it has declined? In my opinion, NoDA and Plaza Midwood are much much more friendly neighborhoods than the places I was speaking of.

I think Sunny was saying that the area you were driving through will soon become the new Noda Plaza area where everyone wants to move to.

Sorry for not clarification back in the 90's plaza, noda, and west Charlotte was real l sketchy . Back in the day when high speed internet was non existent I had no way of researching this city so I moved near Mulberry Church Road and I was once spitted on from the outside of a city bus off Tuckaseegee in the Wesley Height area probably due to my race was in a minority in that area.

I know view that area not bad at all just alot of empty buildings and so so shops.
I think south blvd has more pawn shops and rift raft than West Charlotte does but it takes time for an area to shake it prior image.
