Charlottetown Terrace Renovations

Last certified on: Aug 06, 2012
(Awaiting performance data)

The Charlottetown Terrace renovation has secured another 40 years of affordable rental housing to low-income, disabled adults, and provides an option for a healthy living environment to those in need.

Charlottetown Terrace was originally built by the Charlotte Housing Authority in 1977 as an 11-story high rise to provide affordable housing to both seniors and the disabled. This apartment community has now been designated as housing for low-income, disabled residents of any age. The original structure had 180 dilapidated apartments that no longer met today’s building standards.

Axiom Architecture provided a renovation design that includes 161 apartment units and a service rich environment to the residents, while contributing to the revitalization of midtown Charlotte, NC. The renovations included full system upgrades (mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire and elevator), complete interior upgrades/ refinishing, a window system replacement and multiple exterior upgrades and changes. Along with these renovations, two floors were completely gutted and redesigned to house full-services and amenities for the residents. Furthermore, the Charlottetown Terrace renovation has secured another 40 years of affordable rental housing to low-income, disabled adults, and provides an option for a healthy living environment to those in need. The residents will have access to local amenities including multiple retail areas, a grocery store, a revitalized park, and a bus stop, among others.

With this LEED Certification, Charlottetown Terrace has the distinction of being the first LEED Gold project for the Charlotte Housing Authority.
