The Good the Bad and the Ugly: Urban Design in Charlotte's South End

When: Sunday, May 8, 2-3 p.m.

What: Join David Walters, a professor in urban design, for a walk around Charlotte’s South End neighborhood. This six-block walk demonstrates what's good and bad about the new urban development that is transforming many of Charlotte's close-in neighborhoods, and answers some questions about how and why this happens and how the quality of redevelopment can be improved. The walk will begin at the Common Market courtyard off the north end of Camden Road (or its former site if it's been demolished before the date of the walk). Walk south on Camden and the Rail Trail as far as the Aston apartments. The walk ends on the terrace of Big Ben pub in Atherton Mill.

Location: The group will meet in the Common Market courtyard at 1515 S. Tryon St.

Accessibility: This event is accessible and open to wheelchairs, bicycles, seniors, and children.

Parking: Parking is available in the Common Market parking lot and along Camden Road.
