Centro Railyard is located within Charlotte's South End, a former industrial area that has completely transformed following the development of the Blue Line Light Rail in 2007. Located just south of Charlotte CBD (120k jobs), South End has emerged a true world-class submarket with 2.1M square feet of office space currently under construction. Centro Railyard is attached to one of the most recent office developments, The Railyard*, which includes 320k square feet office and retail spaces. Office tenants include AllState, Ernst & Young, and Parsons; while retailers include STIR, North Italia, and Rhino Market, a bodega-style shop with local drinks, sandwiches, and more. Additional employers in the area include Dimensional Fund's East Coast HQ with spaces for LendingTree's HQ and Lowe's Technology Center under construction. South End boasts a surging young professional profile. The population within a 1-mile radius has grown at a 9.3% CAGR since 2010, and 72% of residents are between ages 18-34. These residents are well-educated (68% have earned college degrees), high-earning ($86.5k median income), and most likely to rent (80% of homes are rented). To cater to this young professional population, Centro Railyard evokes an elevated lifestyle marrying entertainment, luxury, and connectivity.
