Charlotte is always growing, but lately, it’s been from the inside out. While development continues to push the outer rims to the county line, new growth is happening in areas around the city core that were forgotten or neglected for years.
It takes a special eye to create beauty that makes old Charlotte shine in a new way, and our next guest specializes in that. Paul Pennell is a Principal at Urban Design Partners, who is focused on infill design — like we’ve seen in older neighborhoods just outside of uptown, like Optimist Park, Villa Heights, and South End. Hear how he envisions what is old, becoming new again.
