Belk Plaza

Conceptual plan rendering

The much anticipated conceptual plan for the transformation of Belk Plaza was revealed April 11 during the last of three public forums presented by the University.  The forums, which began in February, were a part of an open process to solicit input from the campus community, alumni, and others on how to best utilize the plaza’s space.

“We want Belk Plaza to be more inviting to the campus community,” said Peter Franz, chair of the Belk Plaza Design Committee.  “All of what you see is the culmination of your input.”

LandDesign, a Charlotte-based urban design and landscape architecture firm, created the concept for the improved aesthetic and design.

In describing the functional hybrid of the redesigned space, Adam Martin, a LandDesign associate and UNC Charlotte alumnus, said “We created a palate that would accommodate just about anything.  The functional flexibility of space reflects classic design and introduces contemporary expression.”
