AMERICAN LEGION

MEMORIAL STADIUM

Charlotte, NC

ABOUT THE PROJECT

This project includes the complete demolition and reconstruction of the American Legion Memorial Stadium. This historic property located 310 N. Kings Drive in Charlotte, NC was originally constructed in 1936 as part of the Work Progress Administration (WPA) initiative behind the Armory Auditorium (Grady Cole Center) on land previous included in Independence Park.

·         Dedicated, public memorial to the United States Armed Forces

·         Continued access and connection to Grady Cole Center

·         Continued access to adjacent roads, driveways, and parking

·         Public connection to Little Sugar Creek Greenway and Independence Park

 

Funding has been established and the design team has been selected to begin site master planning, programming, schematic design, and an extensive community outreach and public involvement process. (including public and stake holder meetings).
