After the light rail expansion in the South End region, economic development exploded. It became a booming place to live and to have a business. Now, the city is attempting to replicate that success in the University area by expanding the light rail in that direction. While the construction takes place for more than two years, businesses in the area have suffered significant losses. The construction pushes back the distance from North Tryon to the strip malls. It has also altered many entrances which has deterred many customers. Business owners say their profits have dropped anywhere from 35- 50% since the construction began.
