Steele Creek is experiencing great change. The Charlotte airport is planning to put a cargo station in the area around Steele Creek Presbyterian Church- this will take years to develop due to needed land acquisition. Another big venue, in addition to the mall, is the US Whitewater Center. which has quite a bit of land around it for yet more expansion in the future. I think that I heard of plans for a charter school in the area. My hope is that the City of Charlotte will put bike and pedestrian lanes in to make the area accessible by less polluting and more affordable transportation. The mall will serve a large population area, and the retail should benefit from the close access to the airport.
