Ground broken on Charlotte’s first medical school

Got big plans for your kid to go to medical school? Maybe they can stay close to home…Charlotte leaders and officials gathered to shovel some dirt in the beginning of a project they are calling “The Pearl”. The Pearl will be Charlotte’s first four year med school, as well as a nursing school, retail, apartments, a hotel, and open community spaces.

No timeline was announced on the $1.5 billion dollar project.
