The Northeast Sector
Cabarrus County and northeast Charlotte are experiencing a renaissance in commercial and industrial demand and development. One factor buoying this surge is significant infrastructural investments including re-engineered I-85, completion of I-485 and extension of George Liles Parkway. A second is the recent addition of world-class firms including FedEx, Amazon, Gordon Foods and Alevo, an energy tech firm in the former 2,000-acre Philip Morris campus. This exciting climate reflects a business-friendly attitude based on collaborative efforts between public and private sectors. For expert advice on this high growth region contact us.
