South End

South End SignHistoric South End, often referred to as The South End, is a neighborhood immediately south of Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina.

The South End has its beginning in the 1850’s with Charlotte’s first railroad line, connecting the Queen City to Columbia and Charleston, SC. As time passed a thriving manufacturing community sprang up along the tracks, centered on the booming textile industry. The industrial area declined during the 1970s and 1980s, only to be revived in the early 1990s as restaurants, shops, and design-related industries discovered the old mills and warehouses.

The area is notable for the number of renovated factories and eclectic mix of retail, commercial and high end residential construction.
