Location & Infrastructure

A Strategic Location Propelled by Strong Infrastructure

Located in the heart of North Carolina between Charlotte and the Research Triangle (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill), the Carolina Core offers easy access to six interstate highways, including future I-685.

Carolina Core metros are consistently recognized as having the least amount of traffic congestion in the country, making for no-hassle travel and short commute times in a fast-growing area of America.

The region also puts companies and people within 90 minutes of three international airports that offer efficient global connections: Piedmont Triad International Airport, Raleigh-Durham International Airport and Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Four ports within 300 miles, major rail service and high-speed broadband (1 gig in most areas) add to the Carolina Core’s assets for business.
