Fresh Links – August 19th

A curated list of business, career and community links.



Goodbye Uptown. Hello NoDa!

Anyone who knows the Croixstone team knows that we’re changemakers at heart.  And this week we’re thrilled to announce a big change as we relocated in June 2020 to a larger office in Charlotte’s NoDa district.  

The historic events of 2020 will catalyze seismic changes in both American society and business.  We can’t think of a better place to foster the creativity needed to drive these changes than Charlotte’s beloved arts district. 

As long-term community members and supporters of Industrious Charlotte, we’re pioneering as Industrious NoDa has opened the district’s first Class A office space in a converted warehouse (originally part of the historic Newco Fibre Mill complex near North Davidson and 36th Streets). 

While COVID-19 still has us social distancing and largely working from home, the Croixstone team invites you to virtually tour our new home here.
