The Beck Group’s Dallas Arboretum Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden is one of the projects competing for the Urban Land Institute award.Crescent Communities is bringing a new model of urban living to Uptown Charlotte to redefine the city’s Stonewall corridor. The company’s plans for a mixed-use, transit-oriented development include a 5.4-acre site at the Lynx Light Rail’s Stonewall Station, which will feature a 47,000 square-foot Whole Foods Market, 450-unit luxury apartment community and a parking deck along with retail and up to two hotels.

“This development will be a transformative project for the city of Charlotte,” Ben Collins, regional vice president for Crescent Communities, told MHN. “Whole Foods Market will be Uptown’s first full-sized grocery store. Its size, combined with Whole Foods Market’s holistic approach to the shopping experience, will help this Crescent community redefine urban living in Charlotte.”

Located at the southwest intersection of Stonewall and Caldwell streets, this development will directly connect the community to the Stonewall Station which caters to hot Uptown spots including the NFL Carolina Panthers’ Bank of America Stadium, Levine Center for the Arts and the Charlotte Convention Center. This free-flowing access to Whole Foods Market will represent one of the nation’s most accessible transit-oriented grocers and is perfectly located for everyday Uptown living. Read more
