Growth is everywhere in Charlotte and nowhere is more apparent than in the SouthPark area. It has long been said that SouthPark will inevitably be like Atlanta's Buckhead. Built on what was farmland a generation or two ago, the area is now facing big city problems, congestion, new office towers and hundreds of apartment units. The Urban Land Institute was asked to dig into the challenges facing SouthPark and we hear what they found.
