Providing public ownership of key properties to advance regional economic development goals
Public Ownership for Future Growth
The Port continues to work with partners to identify key, strategic assets to acquire in alignment with larger growth and development goals. Recent acquisitions in the downtown core provide options for expanding our region's convention business.
These investments by The Port, driven by innovative public-private partnerships will have a catalytic effect on future development and vibrancy in the downtown district near the Duke Energy Convention Center and the Fourth and Race project." - Laura N. Brunner, The Port President & CEO
