The Renaissance
THE RENAISSANCE TEAM The Renaissance project was completed as a joint venture with RJ Leeper, a smaller contractor we partnered with to give them the experience needed to pursue larger-scale projects. RJ Leeper provided a Project Coordinator and Assistant Superintendent to the team. Because The Renaissance was completed in three phases, two different teams were assembled to oversee this project.
OVERVIEW The Renaissance community in Charlotte, NC, began as an effort to redevelop the former Boulevard Homes and provide safe, decent housing while offering residents both educational opportunities and professional resources. It provides 224 units of multi-family housing in a mix of townhomes and apartments. A senior-focused building called The Retreat provides 110 additional one-bedroom, affordable apartments for the elderly. Laundry facilities, computer rooms and libraries are available in several areas throughout the building. The first floor of the building is used as a “clubhouse” area, which includes a game room, common kitchen, exercise room and several offices. The development also features a new two-story community center with classrooms, office space, meeting rooms, an outdoor swimming pool and a lounge with a large, two-story window.

IMPACT The three phases of The Renaissance were part of the redevelopment of an area of Charlotte that had one of the lowest household incomes and highest crime rates in the city. Laurel Street Residential submitted a plan to revitalize the area by creating a mixed-income development with a charter school and large community center. The neighborhood includes hundreds of affordable units to help with the on-going affordable housing crisis, as well as subsidized units offered to former residents, and some units reserved for seniors. This was WEAVERCOOKE’s first project with affordable housing developer Laurel Street, marking the beginning of a fruitful relationship that has since resulted in several projects.
