Why People Want to Live in Ballantyne
Ballantyne is perhaps the most popular and fastest-growing suburb of Charlotte. Less than 20 years ago the area at the intersection of Johnston and Ballantyne Commons was little more than empty fields; in the early 1990s developers turned the over 2,000 acres into a sprawling “mini-city,” complete with neighborhoods, schools, retail, restaurants, and parks. Although Ballantyne is still technically part of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, a growing contingent of the area’s some 20,000+ residents want to incorporate and make Ballantyne its own city outright.
Ballantyne is desirable for many reasons. It’s incredibly family friendly and boasts some of the most concentrated upscale shopping outside of Southpark.

With many large companies calling Ballantyne home, some Charlotte residents with a reverse commute have chosen instead to pick up and move to the greater south Charlotte area.
