Legacy Union III

Charlotte, NC

855 South Mint Street is the third office tower in Lincoln Harris’ Legacy Union Development in Center City Charlotte. The building was selected as Honeywell’s Corporate Headquarters when the Fortune 100 Company decided to relocate to Charlotte in 2018. The 24-story tower sits adjacent to Bank of America Stadium, at the confluence of Uptown Charlotte, the financial center of the Carolinas and trendy SouthEnd.

The Tower consists of a double height ground floor housing Honeywell’s Lobby, retail and restaurant space and building loading and service areas. Above the ground floors are twelve levels of secure employee parking. These floors tie directly into the parking floors of the Legacy Union Central Parking Facility which the tower abuts to the east. The tower’s parking levels use the Central Facilities helical ramping system. Ten floors of the office space rise above the parking levels, these floors clear the top of the Central Parking Facility allowing glazing on all sides. Capping the top of the building is a double height, all glass penthouse housing a Visitor Learning Center with exhibit space, reception and entertainment space.

The architecture of the Tower’s façade reflects the industrial/mill building context prevalent in SouthEnd. This simple, functional brick based language had earlier been established as the architectural precedent for the west block of Legacy Union in tribute to the industrial heritage of the site. The common architecture results in a harmonious relationship with the Central Parking Structure. The all glass penthouse connotes a more contemporary expression as cap to the entire complex.
