Ballantyne is one of the most poplar residential destinations in the Charlotte area, with great neighborhoods and highly rated schools, as well as, some of the best shopping and restaurants the city has to offer! The area is home to the Ballantyne Village shopping center, with chic clothing boutiques and jewelry stores, Blakeney Village, an outdoor mall featuring major national brands. Ballantyne was originally a large hunting tract owned by the Harris family. In 1992, Johnny Harris and his brother-in-law, Smoky Bissell, started Ballantyne Corporate Park, which has become one of the most successful master-planned communities in the United States. Harris had the 2,000 acres rezoned, the largest in Mecklenburg county history. Crescent Resources, purchased 610 acres that later became the Ballantyne Country Club and the accompanying residential development. In October 1995, Bissell bought out his brothers-in-law’s shares and established Ballantyne, named after his great aunt. Bissell also developed and designed The Ballantyne Hotel, which has a public 18-hole golf course.
