Why People Want to Live in Southwest Charlotte
Southwest Charlotte is one of the fastest-growing parts of the city. Only a few decades ago, this part of Charlotte was nothing but wide open space, close to Lake Wylie but disconnected from the city itself. Thanks to massive developments such as Ayrsley, the Palisades, and explosive growth in all of Pineville, Southwest Charlotte is now brimming with family-friendly neighborhoods, green spaces, and shiny new shopping centers. Oh, and being super-close to the country’s 8th busiest airport doesn’t hurt, either.
Southwest Charlotte has good public schools and easy access to Uptown via I-77 and proximity to booming Ballantyne through 485. With so many businesses based just over the South Carolina line for tax purposes, plenty of people enjoy a short reverse-commute from Southwest Charlotte, too. New construction, lots of land, and the lake itself are the most consistent draws in the area.
Features, Restaurants & Retail of Southwest Charlotte
The zip codes of Southwest CLT encompass a huge area. Borderline infill neighborhoods like Sedgefield, Madison Park, and southern South Blvd. offer all the amenities of Charlotte – including rising home prices! The further out you go the more new developments and chain stores you’ll find. Ayrsley Town Center is a 5,000,000 square foot master planned community with shopping, dining, and even a movie theater near Carowinds. The Palisades, one of Charlotte’s most popular planned communities, is an absolutely enormous collection of neighborhoods near the SC border that offer everything from golf to tennis to multiple clubhouses.
Pineville is actually its own city, but it’s essentially treated as a suburb of Charlotte. Anchored for years by Carolina Place Mall, Pineville is chock-full of office complexes, shopping centers, and even a full-scale CMC medical complex.
Of course, the stand out feature of Southwest Charlotte is Lake Wylie, arguably the more “casual” of Charlotte’s two largest lakes. The biggest settlement on the NC side of the lake is Steele Creek, adjacent to the brand new Charlotte Premium Outlets as well as hotels and restaurants. The area is also home to the large McDowell Nature Preserve and easy access to several boat ramps and marinas.
What to Know About Houses for Sale in Southwest Charlotte
Because the area is so big, homes are all over the map. In the Palisades, for example, you can find everything from traditional two-story brick to sprawling French chateaus. Waterside property is available along Lake Wylie and many of the new neighborhoods in the area are still building, often using branded builders. Pineville and the South Boulevard area offer more in the way of fixer-uppers, established neighborhoods, and one-story living, but of course, there’s plenty of growth and variation here too.
Whether you’re looking to own an apartment with a lake view, a three-acre family home, or a traditional “McMansion” close to town, Southwest Charlotte has it! Prices in this part of town are going up and they’re going fast, so moving quickly once you find something you like is advisable.
