About the Building
7th & Caswell, located in the Historic District of Charlotte’s Elizabeth neighborhood, is a mixed-use project with retail, office, and residential components. The basic massing of the project was split up into two separate buildings in an attempt to be more respectful to the existing fabric of the neighborhood. The two contrasting styles of architecture are representative of the adjacent neighborhood context while still fit nicely with each other to maintain a cohesive urban design. The first floor of the two buildings consist of 30,000 s.f. of retail/office space respectively while 60 large-sized residential units make up the four floors above. Parking the site was an issue to the neighborhood as it is a challenging location to park in already so sub-grade parking structure is used to accommodate the residential units as well as the commercial functions.
