Ballantyne Area Overview

Ballantyne 2018 Update   
With the transfer of ownership of Ballantyne to Northwood LLC in 2017 a new vision for the future began. Today that vision is underway with the extensive remodeling of the Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge. In the near future there will be more exciting developments that will redefine the concept of Ballantyne as more than just a Corporate Park. 

History 
What is now referred to as the "Ballantyne Area" resides in the southern most area of Mecklenburg County bordering both South Carolina and North Carolina's Union County. It is bordered on the west by Lancaster Highway and on the east by Providence Road. The beginning of this expansive area started with the Harris and Bissell families development of the 2,000 acres their families owned. The vision was to create a master planned community based on the concept of "Live, Work, Play and Stay"

Development of this property which was started in the 1990's now consists of several single home and multi-home communities, apartment developments, shopping and dining venues, a private country club, hotels and a international recognized office park. The development of Ballanyne along with the opening of the I-485 Beltway served as a catalyst for further growth throughout what many people refer to as the Ballantyne Area. Throughout this area you will find an excellent mix of residential housing options, shopping, dining and entertainment venues. The area has excellent rated school both public and private, medical facilities, outstanding office and mixed use business parks, an expansive greenway, public parks and other desirable amenities. 

Related Area Growth

The most recent area being developed is along Providence Road just south of the I-485 interchange. Here you will find more impressive mixed use developments including Waverly,  Rea Farms and Providence Farms  (see links provided below). Other developments will follow in the remaining rural areas in that remain in South Charlotte.
