Spengler & Agans sponsors Friends of Queens Park, calling for a 220-acre public park near Uptown

Spengler & Agans has been dedicated to helping local startups and businesses grow since our founding, but the firm is also helping Charlotte grow.

Our office sponsors Friends of Queens Park, a local non-profit organization founded by litigation partner Eric Spengler. The goal of the organization is to bring a Central Park to Charlotte in the area north of uptown that is now a railyard, not far from the firm’s office in the Elizabeth neighborhood.

We know Charlotte is rapidly growing and continues to bring in new residents and businesses, but the city is lacking in public spaces and parks. That is what pushed Eric to call for big changes: Charlotte deserves a major, iconic park open to the public.

The Charlotte Agenda wrote an article that explains the mission:

[W]orking on the effort is Eric Spengler, a local attorney with Spengler & Agans, PLLC, who recently formed a nonprofit called Friends of Queens Park [ ].

With the rapid redevelopment throughout North End, along the light-rail corridor especially, developers and city officials need to be more mindful about creating green space, Spengler says.

“It’s going to take some heavy lifting and some investment, but that’s the whole point,” Spengler says.

“Without that type of bold action you’re just going to have another South End, which is great, but it could be even better.”
