West Charlotte Replacement High School

Charlotte, NC

The project is an onsite replacement of a high school facility and demolition of the existing high school facility. The new facility on Senior Drive campus will accommodate 2,500 students and replace the current sprawl of 15 buildings — the oldest dating back to 1964. The school will provide 125-classrooms with a new cafeteria/child nutrition, general classrooms, science classrooms, instrumental music spaces, vocal music spaces, theater arts, visual arts, career and technical Education, JROTC, administration, student services, staff support, media center, a natatorium with a 25 meter, 8-lane pool and physical education/athletics spaces and amenities.

LS3P hosted community outreach and engagement events to provide a platform for participants to share community aspirations for the new high school and to review design concepts. The design will provide a contemporary, technically-advanced building that is deferential to the context and rich history of the community and honor its legacy.
