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.

This was truly a remarkable collaboration with CannonDesign!

 

A dynamic hub for campus recreation, the University Recreation Center is UNC Charlotte’s first facility fully dedicated to campus recreation. The four-story facility triples the previous amount of available space and responds to growing student demand and enrollment by filling a significant void in UNC Charlotte’s student life experience with a wide variety of recreation offerings.

Phase XVI Residence Hall Begins Construction Next Week

The new five-story, 147,000 sq.ft. residence hall replaces Moore Hall—a high-rise tower that was previously demolished. The remaining high-rise tower (Sanford Hall) will remain in place. The new residence hall will complete the front quad, connecting Levine Hall, Housing and Residence Life Operations, and provide a direct pathway to South Village Dining Hall. The residence hall design includes traditional double rooms supported by communal bathrooms, study lounges, laundry rooms, multi-purpose rooms, and apartment suites for resident employees.

When given the chance, an old building can often surprise in its ability to take on a new use. This adaptive re-use project at UNC Pembroke is a great example of transformation. Originally designed as a residence hall in 1965, West Hall now houses the IT Innovation Center for students and faculty. The team was excited to work with UNC Pembroke to breath new life into the structure, and provide the campus a building they can use for many years to come.

UNC Charlotte celebrates the Grand Opening of their New State-of-the-Art Rec Center!

Jenkins Peer Architects could not be more proud to be a part of this amazing project on UNC Charlotte’s campus! The new rec center (UREC) will offers students a unique atmosphere to stay active on campus and engage in different programs that focus on health and well-being. The center includes basketball courts, volleyball courts, multi-purpose courts, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, locker rooms, an elevated running track, fitness equipment and group classes, cycle studios, a demo kitchen, as well as a dedicated area for cardio and strength training.

We truly hope the students at UNC Charlotte enjoy their new rec space as much as we enjoyed designing it for them!
