The Fastest Growing Suburbs In The Charlotte Metro Area

People seem to be moving to the Charlotte region in droves. Our growth has been nothing but short of explosive in the past decade. The Queen City ranked #2 among the country's 25 largest cities for population growth between 2010 and 2013. Of the top 10 fastest growing cities in North Carolina, Charlotte ranked #1 in growth from 2010-2015, increasing population by 12.4% during these five years. In fact, Charlotte added more residents in 2016 than all but 10 cities in the USA, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This growth has also fueled significant growth in the Charlotte suburbs.

 

What Are The Reasons For Charlotte Area's Extraordinary Growth?

 

As the graph below shows, Waxhaw, North Carolina was the fastest growing suburb at 36.87% growth from 2010-2015, followed by Tega Cay and Fort Mill, South Carolina. 18 of Charlotte's suburbs enjoyed double digit growth from 2010-2015. And that growth has not stopped in 2016 and 2017.

Hmm,  I would assume Indian Land is already established and fully grown, hence not making the list, right?

Brian England ~ hi Brian... Indian Land has exploded like mad since these statistics... so I would expect to see them in the next update. Plus, many parts of Indian Land are still called Fort Mill (just with a different zip code) so I suspect some of that growth is reflected in the Fort Mill statistics.

HI Nina Hollander - It must be a wonderful and exciting time in Charlotte NC during this boom.  In Sedona we are over 90% built out with no real areas for any new sub-divisions. I enjoyed your presentation.

Hi Nina: I imagine your weather in Charlotte has a lot to do it with the attraction as well. When people come to Sacramento in the spring and remark about how wonderful our weather is and how affordable our homes are, I point out if we had that weather all year long, we'd be as expensive as Carmel. So that's our downfall, 115 in the summer!

Nina I wish we could say the same here in CT.  Our taxes are causing people to leave the state in record number.  It would be nice if our politicians took a  look at what Charlotte is doing and try to incorporate the same.

George Souto ~ hi George... I was listening to a news report about what is impacting CT's economy negatively and it's not a pretty picture. But it also sounds as if your politicians are seriously entrenched and not likely to get tossed out of office any time soon.
