Mecklenburg and Charlotte building permits, 2000-2011


 Feb. 26, 2013

This may be more than a local map to the Great Recession. Note that the proportion of Mecklenburg County permits issued in the Charlotte zoning sphere of influence has become larger as a result of the recession. If that trend continues, the gap would suggest that more housing units -- both multifamily and single familly -- will be urban than suburban. Another factor: Most of Mecklenburg that Charlotte can annex has already been annexed. Developers wanting near-but-not-in Charlotte projects will increasingly go outside Mecklenburg.
