Garden District Row, 10 homes, First Ward, Charlotte NC
Garden District Row is located in Center City Charlotte on East Eighth St. This site and the matching portion of the adjacent block were the only First Ward areas excluded from the 1990’s urban renewal because of private ownership.
The town home style floor plans were designed to appeal to urban dwellers who value the single family home experience. This project incorporated new urbanism influences with its rear alleyway, detached rear-loaded garages and private courtyards. Signature dual-level front porches with distinct column and rail detail provide a view of Charlotte’s skyline.
Midwood Central Phase 1, 10 homes, Plaza Midwood, Charlotte NC
Midwood Central was one of the catalysts of the sweeping urban renaissance that uplifted the Plaza Midwood community for nearly two decades. This progression primarily had been a residence by residence transformation. Built of hardi-panel and cedar siding, these single family homes incorporate arts and craftsman style architecture with inviting front porches and detached garages.
Midwood Central replaced a street of dilapidated duplexes, triplexes and rental homes. Over 95% of these structures were demolished for this project that involved the acquisition of all or part of 22 individual land parcels from 11 different land owners.
Prior to this acquisition and redevelopment effort, the highest sales price on this street was $70,000. Approximately one-fifth of the neighboring single family residences were renovated when the project was announced, including a 2,000 square foot addition to a residence that was acquired for $147,500 and later sold at $675,000.
