Market Street - Daniella Fergusson Summary1. Curbless Streets create a pedestrian prioritized space that can fluidly change from hosting regular traffic to being cordoned off for a block party. 2. Permanent kiosk space and large awnings balance the height of the proposed buildings and give another side to Market Streets retail. This is important, because the light rail effectively blocks the retails access to the new First Ward Park. Proposed Parking Structure and office Building 3. Second floor local-serving commercial space provides a balcony walkway that takes advantages of the views over First Ward Park.

The height of the buildings creates a strong sense of enclosure in First Ward Park, without dwarfing Dixies Tavern (shown in gray).

Retail and Street Level Design FeaturesStreet-Level Design Features

Market Street - Daniella Fergusson

Curbless streets combined with bollards can maximise pedestrian use of the space, while slowing and controlling traffic. Paving can define the space and provide a semi-permeable surface for stormwater reduction.

The 4 photos on the left show examples of how paving can interact with greenery on site. The center two images show seating options: a bar with stools occupies the corner of a building giving patrons a view of a bustling intersection (top); and, moveable chairs on a lawn let people congregate or look for sunny spots (bottom). The right four examples illustrate possible characteristics of the permanent market stalls. Important features include permeability by using glass or slatted wood materials and the ability to close the stall when not in use.

Retail Facades in Charlotte

Retail Facades

The design uses traditional storefront designs that can be seen in Charlotte. On the left is a typical storefront in North Davidson. The space can be divided in half, or multiple bays joined together while keeping a consistent rhythm for the facade. On the left, Dilworth Coffees facade mimics this traditional storefront design, although the shop is part of a much more contemporary development. Both designs have recessed doors and small windows on top of larger plate glass windows. Traditional storefronts invite the eye into the shop via the recessed doors and feel more at the human scale, which is important on a market-focused street.

These storefronts are in Portland, OR, and have the same principle characteristics of the traditional design seen in Charlotte.

Ritz Carlton, Charlotte

Boutique hotels tend to have smaller floorplates than their large chain counterparts. While many boutique hotels, such as 21C in Kentucky, occupy renovated historic buildings, many other hotels take a distinctly contemporary approach to facade design. The Ritz Carlton in Charlotte matches the heavy fenestration of other Uptown buildings built at the same time, such as its neighbor One Bank of America Center.

Kiosks balance the strong statement of the colonnade. The colonnade breaks for the entrance to the residential building.

Vendor kiosks can be locked up at night, plug into electricity and water services, but can also be changed over time. The kiosks activate both sides of Market Street.

Offices and ColonnadesContemporary office buildings in Charlotte employ heavily fenestrated facades with blue-green colored glass. Colonnades are a challenging typology in Charlotte; some buildings such as the Nascar Office Tower and One Bank of America Center have colonnades that are more architectural than functional. Buildings in Charlotte also tent to have strong horizontal movement, rather than vertical movement which provides a sense of scale for pedestrians.
