Massive New Entertainment Complex In The Works For University City


A massive new entertainment complex is now being planned for an undeveloped piece of land in University City.

According to documents filed with the city, the project will include about 16 acres just south of Ikea off McFarlane Blvd;


Cambridge Properties will be leading the development of the new entertainment complex, which they hope will become a major destination for the entire University City region.

Their current plans for the site include; a hotel, a bowling alley, several new restaurants (at least one with a rooftop bar overlooking the city), a movie theater, a new brewery, and a new driving range (possibly the new site for Charlotte’s second Topgolf location).

The new project will sit in the perfect location, between the I-85 interstate and the new LYNX Blue Line light rail extension, which is expected to start running in the Spring of 2018.
