About the Charlotte Commercial Real Estate Market
Charlotte’s economy continued to grow in 2014 as evidenced by increases to the labor force and numerous business relocations and expansions within the market. As market fundamentals strengthen, new construction is breaking ground and being proposed in class A locations. In December 2014, Charlotte was ranked second in big-city growth by the U.S. Census Bureau with 11,000 new jobs having been created in 2014. Unemployment ended the year at 5.6%, down nearly 1.8% year on year. Charlotte has benefited primarily from a constant inflow of major corporate expansions and relocations such as Fortune 500 Company, Sealed Air Corporation’s announcement of relocating its headquarters and 1300 jobs to the Queen City. Charlotte’s economy will continue to grow at a healthy pace in 2015 with the expansion of professional and business service sectors and as cranes return to the skyline.
