Ayrsley Now Has Web Site 

(March 23,  2003) The new Ayrsley Development off S Tryon Street at I-485 now has a web site at www.ayrsley.com

The home page states:

Imagine living in the heart of North Carolina's second largest job center, located at the intersection of Tryon Street, the "main street" of Uptown Charlotte, and the outer beltway.  Ayrsley is positioned to become the Town Center of Southwest Charlotte. Ayrsley's 140 acres will become a diverse urban tapestry of homes, shops, offices and parks.  As a self-sufficient, pedestrian-friendly "Main Street" community, Ayrsley will complete Southwest Charlotte's emergence as a new center of business in the Southeast.

The page showing the development plan states:

Designed by nationally renown Andres Duany of Duany Plater-Zyberk, the Ayrsley Development Plan, a true “New Urban Town,” reflects the architectural and planning principles of smart growth while utilizing traditional neighborhood design. Principles of smart growth have been lost with the rise of urban sprawl in America.  Instead of using huge land lots for individual houses, Ayrsley will focus on compact, mixed use, infill development that utilizes existing city services and preserves open space. This new, cutting-edge community will accommodate the needs of Generation X and Y’ers, Empty Nesters and Baby Boomers alike.

Although is short on details and heavy on vision, the web site provides some interesting information about one of the major mixed-use developments being built in Steele Creek and Mecklenburg County.
