While you might think you need to visit the New Gallery of Modern Art or Shain Gallery to admire artwork from nationally and internationally recognized local artists, instead you can visit Broadstone Queen City, the newly opened multifamily development located at the intersection of South End and Uptown.
With a robust art program curated by Hope Cohn Projects, which has a specialty focusing on Southeastern contemporary art, many nationally recognized visual artists have artwork displayed throughout Broadstone Queen City, including local artist Matt Moore’s bike room mural entitled RIDE, Jourdan Joly’s purple gradient Crown Installation, Mill and Forge’s Queen City Topographical Map and John Tindel’s large-scale handmade paintings gracing the walls of the fitness room. Additionally, William Massey’s Gold Coin in the lobby is a modern take on the original gold coin design that the Charlotte MINT produced in 1849, reminding residents of Charlotte’s rich history.
Art and design are at the heart of the Charlotte-based development team from Alliance Residential, who have been working diligently for two years to complete and perfect this one-of-a-kind apartment community experience. Led by local designers and architects, the team aimed to create a place that would attract and cultivate a community that appreciates the chance to live among an art collection that you would only expect to find in galleries or museums.
“Our goal with this property is to build a community of like-minded, successful leaders who are more than just tenants in our spaces. We want them to be proud and appreciative of where they live – and contribute to its sophisticated culture,” said Alliance Residential Carolinas Managing Director Donald Santos. “Our company is known for striving to make each and every property unique, beginning in the design and branding process. Based on the intent to add to the surrounding community, our main focus with Broadstone Queen City was honoring Charlotte’s thriving art scene.”
Broadstone Queen City, Alliance Residential’s third recent development in North Carolina, is the culmination of the company’s nationally recognized commitment to unique architecture and interior design in each property, setting the new standard for luxury apartment living. Broadstone Queen City debuts 260 luxury studio, one- and two-bedroom units that bridge stylish technology into its interior design.
Each open-floorplan unit features the modern convenience of home technology with electronic locks that allow you to control your space at the touch of your fingertips. Step inside and you’re greeted with gorgeous, warm wood plank-style flooring that immediately makes you feel at home and touches of brushed gold or matte black finishes throughout for that unique edge unlike anything you’ve seen before. Open-floorplan kitchens made for entertaining contain expansive kitchen islands, stylish quartz countertops, top of the line GE appliances and luxe designer lighting and cabinet packages, making you forget you’re in an apartment. Luxurious, spa-like bathrooms are unmatched with beautifully tiled showers and floors, and top of the line Moen fixtures. Soaring floor to ceiling windows and high-end custom entryway mud benches can be found in select units.Each sophisticated finish is carefully designed to bring elegance to your home; Broadstone Queen City delivers apartment homes fit for royalty.
Residents at Broadstone Queen City can also enjoy a relaxing afternoon or evening in the many first-class amenity spaces available, including a unique glass-edged, elevated resort-style saltwater pool, the only pool with this design in an apartment community in the region; rooftop observatory with a bar and lounge; solarium with a full catering kitchen and billiards; and courtyard with grilling station, games and firepits.
Queen City Grounds, a popular local coffeehouse, which has its own creative and stylish reputation, recently opened its second location in Broadstone Queen City’s ground retail floor. Founded in 2017, Queen City Grounds quickly became known for its hand-crafted specialty drinks with fresh ingredients, delicious foods, and extensive beer and wine selection. The launch of this second location opens the doors of Broadstone Queen City to the Sound End and Uptown communities.
“We are thrilled to open the doors of our second location in the ground floor of Broadstone Queen City and to do so in this development. This incredible property is the perfect spot for our second shop and we look forward to welcoming its new residents with a fresh cup of in-house roasted Nightflyer Roastworks specialty coffee every morning,” said Queen City Grounds co-owner Adam Hummell.
Located at 101 West Morehead Street, Broadstone Queen City is also walking distance to Charlotte Beer Garden, which offers the world’s largest selection of draft beers available in one restaurant, as well as Bank of America stadium, Whole Foods and Light Rail.
Both South End and Uptown inspire creativity and nurture culture, making the intersection of these two neighborhoods the perfect home for Broadstone Queen City to shine. With flourishing art scenes, including colorful, large-scale installations, murals and sculptures displayed throughout the neighborhoods, countless art museums and regular public art festivals, Broadstone Queen City highlights these eclectic art scenes and Charlotte’s rich history in its community spaces.
