CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- Wesley Heights is a historic neighborhood in transition. Close to uptown, many of the homes have been or will be renovated.
"It's going to continue to change, I think drastically, in the next five years," says resident Brad Norvell.
But some of that change is concerning him – like the proposed building of a gas station in the lot where we talked with him Wednesday.
"The proposal of a gas station in such a prominent area is a little nerve wracking," he says.
QuikTrip is the company interested - it's new to Charlotte, and looking to grow here, but Wesley Heights resident Elizabeth Sweet hopes the brand doesn't expand to her neighborhood.
"The proposal as it stands does not fit overall with the scale and pedestrian nature of the neighborhood," Sweet says. "It would bring in a lot of traffic, open 24/7, which is not appealing."
