Dimensional Place

Charlotte, NC

Dimensional Place is located in Charlotte’s historic SouthEnd neighborhood and occupies an entire downtown city block. The cast-in-place structure with deep foundations is clad with glazed aluminum curtainwall with custom perforated fins, Indian sandstone, perforated metal, and custom color metal panel. Programmatically the nine-level office tower includes a mix of ground floor retail, conference space, full dining facilities, and office space. An adjacent integrated structured parking deck includes seven levels of parking (two below grade) and 632 spaces.

LS3P, the Architect of Record, is integral to the overall collaboration and complexity of the project team in association with Duda Paine as the Design Architect and Gensler as the Tenant Upfit Architect.

With two levels of below grade parking and a high water table, a permanent dewatering system was required to capture, treat and discharge the groundwater within the site. Sustainable design strategies for this system include capturing, treating, and reusing this water for cooling tower makeup prior to discharge, reducing the amount of overall water used. Another prominent and complex feature is a vast outdoor terrace covering the top level of structured parking and portions of conference/prefunction space. The terrace required strategic design team coordination for bollard-lit walkways, covered and uncovered dining areas with custom stamped concrete, seating areas, maturing trees in recessed tree pits, landscaping, and synthetic turf.
