Center City Suites was created in 2009 in response to a growing demand for short-term furnished housing in Charlotte, NC. A new market segment emerged due to the great recession which involved short-term engagements, relocation, and temporary housing. Hotels were too expensive and lacked extended-stay amenities and apartment rentals lacked flexible lease terms and furnishings. Born was corporate housing and short-term furnished housing for the everyday traveler. The benefits of a short-term lease, fully furnished accommodations, and turn-key housing contributed to the growth of the industry.
Center City Suites originally started with one apartment in 2009 and now operates multiple units in 8 locations throughout Uptown Charlotte and surrounding neighborhoods. The key to the company's success is it's ability to provide the lowest cost furnished housing available in the city. The company is able to do so by cutting out the middle-man. By owning many of the apartments it leases as opposed to subletting them, Center City Suites is able to pass on the saving to it's clients. Competitors in the area typically work with apartments as opposed to condominiums and have little control over costs. This is not the case when you own the condo. The company's Mission Statement:
Our mission at Center City Suites is to become an industry leader in the corporate apartment arena. We strive to provide excellent customer service and quality accommodations at an affordable price unmatched by any competitor
