The Central West planning area is small, but changes here will have huge impacts on major public facilities and on many residential neighborhoods located nearby. Just across MLK is the new UNC campus, Carolina North, where the first phase of development will bring 800,000 square feet of construction and 1780 employees. The Town has already approved an eventual three million square feet of development on the current airport footprint.
See the Carolina North Development Agreement,
that the Town of Chapel Hill signed with the University of Carolina.
