            Light rail is an engine for development in Charlotte, but
            will commuter trains make the grade elsewhere?
            by: Edward Martin
            excerpt from Business North Carolina
            June 2008

            “But the seven-month-old, $462 million Lynx light-rail line moves
            more than people, its boosters say. It moves real estate on the
            city’s south side. They credit it with $1.8 billion of development,
            completed, under way or planned - along its nine miles.”

            ...”a trendy neighborhood that blends old and new on the fringes of

            ...”It’s becoming a residential neighborhood of young bankers,
            lawyers and professionals. They want to be close to the action, and
            light rail sealed it.”

            ...”South End’s resurgence, for instance, was driven by its proximity
            to downtown and was occurring without light rail. Even some
            developers say the rail line wasn’t the chief draw. “We wouldn’t
            go out in the hinterlands and build just because of light rail,” says
            Bo Buchanan, regional director of the Hanover Co., the Houston
            developer that is building the 11-story apartment tower near Nance’s
            condo. [adjacent to Atherton Mill] “But South End had done
            quite a bit of turning around in the last 10 years, and light rail was the
            icing on the cake for us.”
