11030 David Taylor Drive is currently an undeveloped field off West Mallard Creek Church Road but is one of several locations where developers are planning big new, suburban apartment complexes. Even as attention focuses on the high profile sites next to the light rail and uptown office towers, developers are turning their focus to the suburbs, where there's cheaper land and plenty of demand.

In late 2014, construction began on 300 South Tryon, a new 25-story building next to uptown’s Latta Arcade. It was a milestone for Charlotte, which had not seen groundbreaking on an office tower since the recession.
Three years later, officials including the CEO of asset manager Barings, Tom Finke, gathered Thursday for a grand opening of the 300 South Tryon project, whose occupants include Charlotte’s first Kimpton hotel and the corporate headquarters for Barings.
