The Soul of a City in the Heart of Nature

The River District

The River District

Charlotte's newest master planned community.

A refreshing alternative to the traditional, single-use suburban model, this 1,400-acre sustainable, master-planned community integrates the primary components of urban life — a connected network of homes, retail shops, restaurants, office buildings, schools and public spaces — all with the allure of parks, trails, forests, the Catawba River and wide-open spaces. Designed to connect city living to outdoor experiences, The River District is a place like no other.


Designed with nature

Nearly every aspect of The River District will be designed with nature and connectedness at its heart — every home and office will be within a block of a connected trail or park.

The Vision

Charlotte’s Next Best Neighborhood

Adding to Charlotte’s distinct neighborhoods and diverse housing options, The River District will be one of the city’s most dynamic and vibrant neighborhoods and home to an eclectic mix of growing families, young professionals and empty nesters. Passionate people who believe in strong community involvement and stewardship will bring The River District to life. The community is designed to extend Charlotte’s rich history of parks, tree-lined streets and welcoming front porches while connecting the city’s rich urban fabric with trails and greenways linking shops, restaurants, schools and offices.

The Location

An Unparalleled Opportunity

Located in Charlotte, NC, one of the nation’s fastest growing cities, The River District is nestled between the scenic Catawba River and the world’s sixth busiest international airport. Residents can enjoy an early morning kayak before heading uptown for a board meeting, or hopping on a non-stop flight to Europe after an afternoon of mountain biking by the river. Close proximity to the area’s highways and interstates makes regional travel convenient, and the central business district (Uptown Charlotte) is a short 15-minute drive away, making it easy to enjoy Charlotte’s vibrant attractions and business community.
