Properties near the LYNX Blue Line and other proposed light rail corridors are experiencing development pressure.

The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) was awarded a Federal Transit Administration planning grant to assess and plan for future transit-oriented development patterns at the proposed Silver Line stations.
