Historic Second Ward Gymnasium Renovation

710 E M.L.K. Jr Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28202, USA

Community

Working alongside the alumni of Second Ward High School, the first African-American High School in Charlotte, our design team was able to capture essence and historical context of the structure. Our mission was to restore that pride and give the Second Ward Alumni Association and the community a place to host events such as tournaments, exercise classes, and reunions. Located adjacent to the Aquatic Center, this new facility will be run by Mecklenburg County Parks and Rec. The Second Ward Alumni Association along with Mecklenburg County Parks and Rec will each have their own office spaces, and a small addition will house brand new restrooms.
