Since the Charlotte City Council voted in August to buy Eastland Mall – and even prior to the official purchase – rumors have flown around the Queen City about the future of the once-great, now-derelict mall.

Embedded in the pavement of Elizabeth Avenue, the streetcar tracks gleam silver with promise. But with the actual streetcars at least two years away, no one can say for sure whether that promise ever will turn to the gold of extensive commercial development, a particular need for Charlotte’s beleaguered West Side.

In the six score and three years since it was built, the Dr. George E. Davis House has undergone a few changes. Built in 1890, the house was added to in the early 1900s and given a brick façade in the 1920s, according to the Mecklenburg County Historic Landmark Commission. Since then, the house near the campus of Johnson C. Smith University has fallen into disrepair.

Dilworth residents aren’t afraid to fight developers wishing to start projects in their neighborhood. In November, after months of protest from the neighborhood – front-yard signs included – the Charlotte City Council rejected a rezoning request that sought to bring a Walgreens and an office building to Dilworth. Residents said it didn’t match the area plan, or their vision, for the community.

Davidson College students who spent the majority of the last year living in E.H. Little Dormitory probably will be surprised when they return to campus in the fall and find their former residence hall doesn’t look much like the home sweet home they remember. That’s because the college is overhauling Little Dorm as it approaches its 60th birthday and adding to it things that often come standard today.
