Land & Intersection Projects | Charlotte, NC

The project team was tasked with providing planning and design services for the City of Charlotte’s Southeast Land Acquisition and Street Connections project. The purpose of the project was to implement the vision of the Independence Boulevard Area Plan (IBAP) in support of economic development and revitalization along the Independence Boulevard Corridor. Several of the projects have included coordination with CATS proposed LYNX Silver Line to improve access to the proposed station areas. A market study was completed for the corridor that identified trends and anchors that could serve as catalysts for revitalization along the corridor.

The project team developed a preliminary list of 50 projects based on compliance with Community Investment Plan (CIP) goals, IBAP vision and market study recommendations as well as a recommendation from various earlier studies completed for the corridor.
