The Future of Charlotte NC: Cities of Tomorrow Discovery Place

Charlotte's already a pretty great place to live, but the future of Charlotte takes the relationship between people, the things they need to do, the arts, and sustainability to new levels. Discovery Place's Science Museum will be holding an event on August 23rd discussing the future of Charlotte, NC and other major cities all over the globe.

The Future of Charlotte NC

Changes in the works

There are already some big plans for Charlotte.

Major investments are being made for a dazzling new music scene giving both musicians and music enthusiasts more, richer opportunities for growth and variety. Charlotte will soon be a go-to music destination.

Mecklenburg County has already built and continues to expand a massive greenway system to improve walkability and bikeability throughout the county. The idea is to make it possible, safe, and even enjoyable to fully travel on foot or bike to the places you want to visit or frequent.

You can learn more about Charlotte's immediate plans on the city's Charlotte Future page. Keep abreast of changes before and after your move.

·       Nicholas Ault, a licensed architect who lives and teaches in Charlotte and uses his knowledge and experience to create equally engaging and functional designs.

·       Jefferson Ellinger, Associate Professor of Architecture at UNC Charlotte, who focuses on next generation solutions in architecture.

·       Sean A. Gallagher, Associate Principle and Director of Sustainable Design at Diller Scofidio + Renfro who focuses on making the most of social spaces by utilizing sustainable design.
