Beatties Ford Road
Beatties Ford Road is a major transportation corridor from Uptown Charlotte through the heart of the Historic West End neighborhood.  The Historic West End was developed in the early 1900s as one of the city's first suburban neighborhoods and was accessible by trolley from the uptown business core.  The Beatties Ford corridor is home to, among others, Johnson C. Smith University and the Northwest School of the Arts, several prominent and historic churches, a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library branch, and the recently completed CMPD Metro Division headquarters.  Many great business and infill development opportunities exist in the corridor.
