Charlotte’s UREC Recognized as a 2021 Facility of Merit by Athletic Business

This past October, Athletic Business showcased the 2021 Facilities of Merit Awards winners. We are proud to share that University of North Carolina at Charlotte‘s University Recreation Center was recognized as one of AB’s Top Ten Facilities of Merit for 2021—recognizing the best, most innovative athletic, fitness and recreation facilities in North America from 60+ submissions that were featured in the June Architectural Showcase issue.
