Transforming SouthPark, with Adam Rhew of SouthPark Community Partners

SouthPark Community Partners CEO Adam Rhew shares details about the organization's vision plan to transform SouthPark into a dynamic, vibrant mixed-use community

Today’s episode of The Charlotte Ledger Podcast is sponsored by SouthPark Community Partners, an independent nonprofit organization whose mission is to lead SouthPark's advancement by driving economic vitality, creating memorable experiences, and ensuring an extraordinary quality of life.


Imagine strolling down a vibrant street, filled with neighbors stopping by a community farmer’s market, admiring local artwork or grabbing lunch at a food truck. That’s SouthPark Community Partners’s vision for the SouthPark area in south Charlotte.

In April 2024, SouthPark Community Partners released a comprehensive vision plan aimed at enhancing SouthPark’s economic vitality and quality of life. The plan, developed through extensive community engagement, outlines 64 projects to shape SouthPark's future over the next decade. The goal is to transform SouthPark into a cohesive, engaging environment where residents and visitors can thrive.

On this episode of The Charlotte Ledger Podcast, SouthPark Community Partners CEO Adam Rhew talks with The Ledger’s Tony Mecia about the vision plan and what residents can expect to see in the future. They also discuss:

  • Rhew’s experience growing up in SouthPark.

  • SouthPark's transformation from a traditional suburban neighborhood to a dynamic, mixed-use urban environment.

  • The importance of placemaking.

  • Innovative transportation solutions, such as free shuttle services and enhanced pedestrian infrastructure, to reduce car dependency.

  • Collaborating with stakeholders, including property owners, developers, residents and local government.

  • A look at SouthPark’s future.

We hope you enjoy the conversation with Adam Rhew.
