Metropolitan at Midtown

Charlotte, NC

Uniquely located between historic residential neighborhoods and Uptown Charlotte, Metropolitan densely combines nearly 1.5 million square feet of quality retail, office, and residential space along with structured parking on an approximately 14 acre site. The development organizes and connects eight buildings along a “walkable” street combining high-rise office and mid-rise residential over street level retail / restaurant tenants. Street level amenities include landscaped parks, public plazas and water features, creating a new urban center along Metropolitan Avenue. The project’s retail components are part of a new urban model offering convenience and efficiency. Target sits over an Expo Design Center, while T.J. Maxx and Staples are stacked over a Best Buy. This mixed-use project offers an affordable mix of housing that is flexible and responsive with greater amenities—a truly dynamic approach to the market.
