Villa Heights is a rapidly growing area close to the uptown of Charlotte NC. There is a wide range of residents, from families to students to established young professionals. There are many neighborhood activities that are open to newcomers as well. Its easily accessible to the new light rail system in Charlotte too. The only thing I would change is the construction, but it will be over soon and we will be ready to use our new public transportation!

I love it here I'm lived, here almost my whole life. It's close to Uptown Charlotte, Charlotte Transportation Center and the Lynx Blue Line.
There's a lot of diversity here. But the new neighbors don't talk or communicate with the veterans neighbors. They try to uproot us by making us sell and they buy our property. This was once a close-kit neighborhood in the past, everyone looked out for each other. Nowadays, it's not like that.
