Charlotte, North Carolina
Charlotte City Council has approved the new Link Building at Bojangles’-Ovens Auditorium. Odell was retained by the City of Charlotte and the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority to renovate the Coliseum and also to study options for improvements to the Coliseum and Auditorium Complex as a whole. The assessment of the existing facilities identified a lack of hospitality and amenity spaces, single point of entry for common events, and flexible support spaces between the two existing facilities.
The recommended design solution, nicknamed “The Link” is a building linking the Coliseum and Auditorium with approximately 40,000 SF of space. The design includes office space, meeting rooms, and other ancillary gathering spaces shared between the two facilities.
