Everyone has moved at least once in their lives. Nobody would say it is fun.

CLT is going to be experiencing a big move in the not-too-distant future that will affect our community.

The key word there is MOVE.

Not close. Not end. No going away parties. No thanks-for-memories, to be relegated to the mind’s eye. This will be a short move. Just a few thousand feet.

As with any move there must be planning. And an upgrade or two. Or, in this case, about 15.

Plans are underway to relocate the Airport Overlook as part of the North End Around Taxiway project, which includes airfield improvements associated with the forthcoming runway.

To be clear: The current Airport Overlook will NOT close until the new area is open to the public.

A simple address change, without the need to contact the U.S. Postal Service to get the mail forwarded.

The popular area was called “one of the seven wonders of Charlotte” by the Charlotte Observer. It will remain on Airport property and maintain the spectacular airfield, skyline and terminal views you have come to enjoy.

There are many exciting things in store and those will be shared at the appropriate time.

Until that new “house” is built and ready for yard-of-the-month eligibility, you can continue to enjoy the space at 4355 Airport Overlook Drive from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
