Young CRE Pros Talk Streetcar


YREP Carolinas (that would be Young Real Estate Professionals, if acronyms aren't your thing) met Wednesday at 1900 Mexican Bar and Grill on Elizabeth to discuss the Charlotte Streetcar project with the City of Charlotte's Andy Widenhouse, senior project manager for the development. Interesting conversation and frosty beverages were available (if you're jealous, we heard that all are welcome to these events, not just young folk). Above, FMW Real Estate's Josh Chambers, Andy Widenhouse, and SilverCap Partners' James Delaney.


Preferred Electric's Jonathan Gibbs, Harwell Law Firm's HelenHarwell, and the Keith Corp's Nicole Frambach. The streetcar was started last December. The first phase, the only one that's paid for yet, runs 1.5 miles along Trade St from Time Warner Cable Arena to Presbyterian Hospital. Later phases would expand the line for a total of 10 miles along Beatties Ford Road near I-85 through the CBD along Trade Street, up Elizabeth Ave by Central Piedmont Community College and out to Central Ave at Eastland Mall.Ã
