Floor plans reveal details about UNC Charlotte’s center city building

Posted on 27 Mar 2009 by James Willamor

CLT Blog has discovered new renderings and floor plans of the planned UNC Charlotte uptown building. The renderings were posted in the Charlotte section of the Urban Planet forum. According to the plans, the twelve floor building will include a gallery and bookstore with entrances on 9th Street. Additionally, the building will have a cafe with an entrance on Brevard Street, and the main lobby will face the proposed First Ward Park. Additional renderings after the page break.

    I see no built in parking deck or attached lot. Or is that only one floor of parking underneath? i would have expected them to build in more parking. there will probably be parking initially in surrounding lots, but a lot of that nearby parking will eventually be developed. small detail for now, but for the long term, I wonder what the parking needs/plans are for this space… looks like the building holds up to 2,0003,000 at max capacity. that could be a lot of cars potentially.

    with all that said, that is my only critique. I am very proud of the university for their vision on this project. it will be a great statement. finally glad to see them leading the way in showing what Charlotte as a city can become

    Not sure about the parking. Though I’ve been very impressed with the Epicentre and other new uptown developments in allowing amble parking, so perhaps that thinking will spill over. Also I’m totally uninformed on how to read this stuff, so maybe it’s implied somehow.

    There is supposed to be underground parking under a portion of the 1st Ward Park. In terms of number of spaces and levels, I’m not sure how much.

    I am glad to see the UNCC is going to be uptown with a little bit more umph. The archtiectural statement could have been more, I wish. But hey, better than nothing. They showed the architectural rendering in the observer the other day. Good to see some more info here.
