City, state take next step for future uptown transportation hub | Transportation
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- The state and the city of Charlotte are moving along with plans to build a new multi modal transportation center in uptown Charlotte within the next decade.
The N.C. Department of Transportation issued a request for qualifications Thursday from developers with experience in urban mixed-use projects to partner on the future Gateway Station district development in uptown.
The state wants to have all candidates for the project's master developer submit their qualifications by Sept. 21.
The station and its associated development will be built in Third Ward near Bank of America Stadium. The station will be along Trade Street at Graham and Fourth Street.
It will serve as a central hub for Amtrak, Greyhound Bus service, CATS bus and streetcar service, the North Corridor Commuter Rail Project and Mecklenburg County's green way system, as well as aid in the redevelopment of the surrounding area, according to the NCDOT.
