City Living: Charlotte, NC

Charlotte, NC | Greystar

Experience life like a royal when you reside at a Greystar community in Charlotte, colloquially known as North Carolina’s Queen City. As one of the state’s primary financial hubs, Charlotte is ideal for enjoying a contemporary lifestyle that’s rich in culture. Local residents at Gateway West and Element Uptown are closely familiar with all of the social and entertainment attractions in the Uptown communities of Charlotte, North Carolina — and with a society fit for a king, you should be, too.  

Sumptuous Dining

Feasting like royalty is as easy as gathering your footmen, jumping in your royal coach and heading to unique establishments such as The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar, 300 East and Rooster’s Wood Fired Kitchen. Charlotte’s domain is also perfect for enjoying local favorites like Del Frisco’s, or the deliciously fresh Cabo Fish Taco. You’re sure to return to your castle satisfied and impressed with the broad variety of flavors in your city.

Sights To See

Dukes and barons are (thankfully) not a part of American life and government, and this fact should be regularly celebrated by hoisting a pint during a Craft Brewery Tour. Charlotte also features majestic attractions such as the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, and catching a glimpse of an Olympic athlete in training at the US National Whitewater Center is a distinct possibility. For adventures that would rival those of St. George on his knightly dragon quest, residents can travel to Carowinds theme park.

Sports Galore

Charlotte is home to enough professional sports teams to keep even the most die-hard, foam-finger waving enthusiasts entertained for weeks on end. Your little princes and princesses will love the thrill of the rumbling NASCAR exhaust pipes and sounds of the deafening drag races at Charlotte Motor Speedway, as well as the fast-paced hockey checks of the Charlotte Checkers. You’re almost guaranteed to lose your voice from cheering your teams to victory.

Charlotte’s one and only Bank of American Stadium plays host to the smooth-playing NFL Carolina Panthers, as well as soccer games and community outreach programs. NBA hoops lovers can catch a slam-dunk game with the Hornets, and the Charlotte Knights always offer up a sports experience that would impress and delight even the stuffiest of monarchs.

Shop ‘Till You Drop

If observing paint dry on growing grass seems more appealing to you than watching a stadium full of dashing men in tights chase a ball around, step onto the streets of Charlotte for some retail therapy.

Locals always seem to know all the secrets, and the Metropolitan, Birkdale Village and SouthPark shopping centers are favorites for sure. This concentration of boutiques offers some of the most unique collections of stores you’ll find anywhere and are a must-visit for dedicated shoppers.

With all of these dining, sightseeing and entertainment options right at your fingertips, it’s easy to see why Greystar residents at Junction 1504 and Mosaic South End love to call Uptown Charlotte their home. Contact us today and let one of our talented court attendants add you to our regal family.
