Coming in 2017, Uptown Charlotte will have yet another unique urban development offering the live-work-play evolution, Crescent Stonewall Station by Crescent Communities.
It wasn’t long ago when Uptown Charlotte was only office buildings and retail storefronts. As more companies entered Uptown’s office buildings, more people began to commute into the city. Lately, there are fewer commuters and more people who live, work, and play in Charlotte Uptown, due to the high costs and extra efforts of commuting. Coming in 2017, Uptown Charlotte will have yet another unique urban development offering the live-work-play evolution, Crescent Stonewall Station by Crescent Communities.
Crescent Stonewall Station is Crescent Communities’ (Charlotte) newest mixed-use development in Uptown Charlotte. Crescent Communities is a large commercial and residential developer based out of Charlotte. Crescent Communities expands their developments throughout the major cities of the southeast. Their mission is to cultivate communities with lasting legacies, which is what they are culminating over at Crescent Stonewall Station.
This new development sits on the edge of Second Ward and I-277. The prime location, with over three acres, on Stonewall Street will set a new precedence for future Uptown developments. The designs and plans for Crescent Stonewall Station are so multi-functional that a resident will have to leave the premises only by force.
Here’s a look at this Crescent Communities project and how they plan to create this mixed-use urban development.
- A 12-story apartment tower with 110 units will sit on top of the west wing of the development.
- A five story apartment building with 340 units will create a centralized hub for the surrounding amenities.
- The granite countertops and designer lighting give a little taste of how modern the apartment features are.
- The parking deck is slated for 11 levels, however an exact space per apartment count has not been released yet.
- The Whole Foods Market will utilize 47,000 square feet of retail space on the main level, making this one of the only residential buildings in Uptown Charlotte that features a complete supermarket. (Currently Fourth Ward’s Fifth and Popular condominium building is the only residential building with an supermarket in Uptown.)
- Besides the short walk to places like the Convention Center, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, or the Charlotte Observer, the Crescent Stonewall Station has direct connectivity to the LYNX light rail station for simpler commutes into Uptown and beyond.
- If you’re a shopping enthusiast, fabulous server, or a smart manager, then the 15,000 square foot retail space for shops and restaurants will become your new work space.
- If you’re an art connoisseur you will appreciate that Crescent Stonewall Station is just three blocks from the Mint Museum, Levine Museum and the Harvey B. Gantt Center.
- All residents will have access to the yoga room, fitness center, tech lounge, and the club room for social events.
- The rooftop terrace will provide one of the best panoramic views of Charlotte Uptown, giving restaurants like Fahrenheit and Bentleys some serious panoramic competition.
- While on the rooftop, residents can enjoy the saltwater pool with poolside cabanas and additional outdoor living space.
- Allow your best friends to meet a few new best friends in the gated dog park.
There has not been any official statement released on the monthly rental rates for a unit at Crescent Stonewall Station. Considering the costs of other mixed-use buildings in Uptown Charlotte the monthly rental costs could range anywhere from $1200-$1800 per unit. A community with these features and amenities may not seem rare since most of Uptown Charlotte offers convenience, however most apartments and condominiums do not offer such community feel.
Crescent is obviously targeting successful adults who enjoy the urban life and the convenience it offers to their work. Hopefully, the retail shops and restaurants will speak to the needs and must-haves of these successful individuals and couples. One idea would forn a partnership with one of the local breweries. Offering a speakeasy, beer garden or pub on the facility would create more opportunities for play and give the residents a nearby happy hour spot.
A few banking options or at least a few ATM options would also be necessary for a crowd of professionals. The restaurant options should also offer a variety of cuisine, as the demographics of Uptown Charlotte’s dwellers are more diverse than ever.
It’s hard to assume that these successful adults are single, perhaps at least one third of the residents at Crescent Stonewall Station would be small families. Therefore, options for childcare, a small pharmacy, or space for mommy-and-me activities are hopefully a part of the retail plans as well.
