The Barclay at SouthPark

Charlotte, NC

This new 595,000 SF Continuing Care Retirement Community is located in the heart of Charlotte’s thriving SouthPark district with easy access to businesses, retail, entertainment, and residential neighborhoods. Designed to encourage an active senior lifestyle in a resort-style setting, The Barclay blends traditional and contemporary architectural elements to respond to the urban context. The high-quality masonry and architectural precast construction will provide long-term durability, resiliency, and ease of maintenance.

The development will offer 166 independent living units and 126 healthcare units including skilled nursing, memory care, and various levels of assisted living on separate floors, each with dining areas, living spaces, and salon support. The healthcare tower features skilled nursing and multiple levels of assisted living with independent dining rooms and service kitchens, activity areas, private exterior courtyard space, and a full OT/PT clinic.

Independent living options range from the 800 SF one bedroom/ 1-1/2 bath to the 2,450 SF two bedroom/ 2-1/2 bath, all with walk-in closets, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and island kitchens with quartz countertops. The Barclay offers a wide range of unit plans each with unique features and views providing each resident a truly individual home.

The Barclay includes a wide range of resident amenities such as an indoor pool, spa, fitness area, common living room and library, card room, billiards room, arts room, and flexible multi-use space located on the ground floor for easy access along the primary path which opens to expansive north and south facing terraces. Four dining options include a grill, bistro, upscale private dining room, and a bar/coffee shop.

In addition to designing the development, LS3P assisted the client with a comprehensive masterplanning, visioning, and programming effort for the 11-acre site which also includes multifamily residential development, future expansion of the Barclay, and a hotel.
