The existing retail corner buildings are to be renovated and restored including an institution to the Charlotte music community, the Neighborhood Theater. The balance of the block contains the mixed use Mercury NoDa project is a mixed use project containing niche retail, a green grocer, art lofts, 160 condominium units, and both cast in place and precast parking structures. The architecture is cued by a mix of traditional retail forms in this central business district, neighboring warehouse buildings, and an infusion of bold colors and massing inspired by the local arts scene. The final product will include art installations from community artists.
