Ballantyne is a neighborhood in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina occupying a 2,000-acre (8.1 km2) area of land adjacent to the South Carolina border.

The community was named after land developer Howard C. “Smoky” Bissell's aunt Barbara Ballantyne. Mr. Bissell anticipated that Charlotte would expand toward the South Carolina border and planned an office and commercial development accordingly.

At present, Ballantyne includes a country club community and neighborhoods containing houses ranging from starter homes to estates selling for several million US dollars. Additionally, Ballantyne includes several restaurants, shopping facilities, hotels, and corporate offices. The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge, offering 30,000 square feet of event space, is frequently the site of weddings and social occasions. It also includes a golf school and 18-hole golf club on premises.[1]

The I-485 Outerbelt runs through the northern area of the development and sees one of the highest traffic counts in North Carolina.[citation needed]

In February 2010, The Charlotte Housing Authority and a developer wanted to include a low-income public housing project just south of the Ballantyne Country Club at Johnston Road and Providence Road West. The proposal was ultimately dropped following local opposition.[2]

April 14, 2012, brought residents together to discuss an idea of breaking away from the city of Charlotte to form their own city.[3]

In the history of North Carolina, this has never been done before. If it is done, the residents will name the new city Providence. However, there is currently a North Carolina community that already carries this name and has its own zip code.[4]

According to the N.C. Constitution, the N.C. General Assembly would need a three-fifths majority in both houses in order to approve the creation of a new municipality that is within five miles of an established city and has a population of at least 50,000 people.
