Freemorewest

Charlotte, NC
Category: Nightlife/Play
Award: Best Neighborhood to Watch - 2016
Year Won: 2016
Pick: Editor's Pick

South End and Plaza Midwood get most of the attention, but another neighborhood near uptown is becoming the best representation of this city’s potential. FreeMoreWest, named for its intersection of Freedom Drive and Morehead Street, is home to restaurants with cult followings—Savor Cafe, Pinky’s, Rhino Market & Deli—along with a mix of new residential buildings filled with young professionals and older homes with longtime residents. With LaCa Projects displaying Latin American art and street monuments dedicated to the area’s African-American history, this could be gentrification done right.
