Construction begins in Elizabeth on mixed-used project

CHARLOTTE, .N.C. — Construction has begun on a mixed-use project at the intersection of East 7th Street and North Caswell Road in Charlotte’s Elizabeth neighborhood.

On Monday, developer Crescent Communities unveiled details on Elizabeth on Seventh.

The project will feature 103,500 square feet of office and ground-floor retail space.

The pedestrian-friendly plan calls for a courtyard, a first-floor tenant lounge, three outdoor terraces and public art throughout. In addition, there will be a parking garage with entry points on East 7th Street and North Caswell Road. Bike parking will also be available.

“The historic characteristics of the Elizabeth neighborhood provided a palette of materials, color and architecture that helped us design a building that feels authentic to the community while embracing a high-caliber workplace,” said Crescent’s managing director Sagar Rathie in a news release.

Crescent is also pursuing a Fitwel certification, which will put a focus on health and wellness specifications throughout the building’s design, development and operations processes.

“The building’s design, architecture and layout will add to the appeal; Crescent Communities has been thoughtful to incorporate amenities that will enhance the tenant experience,” said Stephen Woodard of JLL.

JLL will manage leasing for the office space.
