Metropolitan at Midtown

2009 / Charlotte, North Carolina

A 30-acre derelict parcel adjacent to downtown Charlotte and an exceptional collaborative effort between architect, client and municipal authorities gave rise to this new mixed-use urban quarter.  Layering an office tower and mixed-income residences over boutiques and restaurants juxtaposed with big-box retail, the project offers a model for urban renewal.  Reclamation of a previously paved-over riverbed and the creation of  a linear park along its edge effectively weaves the project not only into the fabric of the city, but also to a new greenbelt conservation system.  Key components of the project were awarded LEED Silver Certification.
