NoDa Real Estate

Known as Charlotte’s arts district, NoDa welcomes musicians, chefs, mixologists, muralists and more to liven up its landscape.

In the early 1900s, NODA flourished as a textile mill town. But the area’s original blue-collar community changed drastically as mills closed in the 1950s and 1960s. Thankfully, in the mid-1980s, artists Ruth Ava Lyons and Paul Sires offered a hip new vision when they opened a gallery, and, through the years, it morphed into the cool and funky town it is today.  NoDa, short for North Davidson, old and new is a thing of beauty. Colorful murals dance across aged factory buildings, tunes from up-and-comers seep out of music joints, and inventive restaurants sling plates across reclaimed wooden tables. Gallery crawls, offbeat retailers and a slew of breweries beckon crowds. And with the completion of the LYNX Blue Line light rail extension from Uptown, NoDa only stands to grow more.
