CHARLOTTE, NC – The Bainbridge Companies, a leading owner, developer and manager of luxury multifamily communities in the eastern U.S., announced leasing is open at Bainbridge South End, a boutique community featuring 200 apartment homes in the heart of South End, Charlotte's most popular intown neighborhood.

Select apartment homes will feature direct access to the trail, and the community offers indoor bike parking and a bike repair station located on the Rail Trail.
The six-story community is just minutes from Uptown and offers walkable access to the New Bern light rail station, a Harris Teeter grocery store, and a number of hip restaurants and craft breweries, including the Triple C Brewing Company.

The community is also in close proximity to more than 20 million square feet of Charlotte office space.
Bainbridge South End pays homage to its surroundings with a 32-foot x 20-foot, Charlotte-inspired mural by renowned local artist Scott Partridge. The artwork, which is featured in the community's fitness center, promotes fitness and the South End lifestyle with images of the Wooden Robot Brewery, the Carolina Panthers and Thomas Sayre's "Furrow," an earthcasting sculpture visible from the light rail. The two-story 24-hour fitness center also provides residents with a greater personal experience, with yoga, spin bikes and a private training room featuring Virtual Fitness on Demand™ to suit their individual needs.
