Franklin Urban Sports+Entertainment District


FUSE District





The FUSE sports and entertainment complex in Gastonia is bordered onsite by several parcels suitable for developing complementary businesses. There is also a large inventory of adjoining and nearby properties within walking distance that are available for sale or lease.


The FUSE District in Gastonia is easily accessed and navigated by main thoroughfares, Franklin Boulevard and US-321/York and Chester Streets. Bus routes run throughout the District and pedestrian and bike traffic is encouraged by designated walkways and lanes.


The options available are limited only by your imagination and tastes. The multi-use complex facility and its adjoining businesses within the distict offer a variety of sports and entertainment choices year round. Your possibilities multiply as you venture out of the district into the National Historic Loray District or Downtown Gastonia.



If we’ve fueled your interest about FUSE and plans for its development, we invite you to visit this site frequently. We will update the information as the project progresses. You’ll find information on current designs, project costs, potential private development, etc. Just click the “learn more” button.
