  The proposed outlet mall for southwest Charlotte is on a fast track to get city and county approval for tax breaks and land-use changes.  The county commission has already approved a gift to the developers of up to $6 million. The city council is poised to do the same. WFAE's Julie Rose explains.

Tanger Factory Outlets and Simon Property Group are in a hurry to start attracting those zealous shoppers who drive for hours to hit the outlet mall.

The Charlotte Economic Development Committee is planning a trip to the theater. Committee members decided Thursday they need to go see the historic Carolina Theatre - and just how rundown it's become - to help them decide between two proposals to renovate it.

The Carolina Theatre used to be an old, Southern gem. Now, it’s just an old, empty building in a key spot uptown.
