This is HUGE!

South End is about to get A LOT more traffic!

Lowe’s announced Thursday it has selected the city for a 2,000-employee global tech hub, which will be housed in a new 23-story tower to go in South End.

The project will cost an estimated $153 million. The new hub will create 1,600 jobs. Developers plan to break ground in August and will open in late 2021.

Salaries will vary, but Lowe’s said the average annual pay for the new positions will be more than $117,000.

I’m super excited that Charlotte is expanding, and more jobs are coming to the city but can we talk about the obvious? What is traffic going to be like in South End?! It’s already pretty bad so you can only imagine when there are 1,600 new employees in the area.

Either way, it’s great news for the Queen City!
