Optimist Hall opened just a week ago in Optimist Park near NoDa. The development means big things for that neighborhood—office space, and with that, new people commuting to the area, along with a slew of new food and beverage vendors. For those looking to buy into the hottest neighborhood in Charlotte right now, there are plenty of options. From renovated bungalows to new construction townhomes and single family houses, there’s a home for every style (and budget). Take a look at some of our picks below:

Parkwood Square – Starting at $339,990

This is a new construction townhome development by Ryan Homes, offering three- and four-story options. Located steps away from the Parkwood light rail station, buyers can choose from two- or three-bedroom floor plans, some with rooftop terraces, and the option to choose finishes and upgrades. 

True Uptown Villa Heights – Starting at $514,900

Another new construction option nearby is True Uptown Villa Heights. Buyers can choose from three different plans of single family homes, ranging from three to five bedrooms.
