UPTOWN FOREST TRANSIT 1 1.6 to 1.8 million m3/yr North America’s demand for C LT North Carolina- 18.14 million acres of timberland 2 and 2.5 million m³ by the end of 2020 was valued at $ 119 million in 2016, Charlotte North Carolina Largest transit system between 10 O ce Towers It is the third fastest-growing Ranked top 10 Busiest Airport Cross laminated timber panels are 47% Tree Canopy Coverage 18.2 Million Acres of Forest Washington DC & Atlanta, GA Built / Being Built Since 2010 major city in the United States. In The World transported using the existing track system About This Project and stored on site. The UPTOWN FOREST is at the nexus of one of Charlotte's largest transit hubs. This mixed-use building considers the future of transportation with the future of construction. Visual connection across tracks: East to West. TRANSIT 2 Considering the new addition of the LYNX Silver Line travelers will be directly connected from Charlotte Douglas International Airport to the heart of Uptown Charlotte. Additionally, this mixed-use Uptown Forest - “O ff-Grid” environment. building will also host Charlotte’s rst hostel, a food hall, as well as a variety of socially equitable spaces; accessible to both visiting travelers and the community . Furthermore, the building will also host Greenery + Possible Green corridor venue. The extension of the Gold line intersects with the Greyhound station, a storage facility for cross-laminated timber products. and the proposed Silver line,which would extend from Belmont,N.C., move Wood Composition through Charlotte Douglas International Airport, The 180,000 square-foot facilities will be made of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) an emerging building technology, that will be sourced from the North Carolinian forests, bringing a and terminate in Mathews, N.C. physical piece of the forests into the heavily urbanized core of Charlotte. As such, the articulation of the project bridges the divide between North Carolina ’s forestry industry in both the Western and TRANSIT 3 Eastern regions of the state with its largest metropolitan area, the Charlotte-Mecklenberg region right in the middle. This simultaneously provides a touch of southern hospitality to entertain and house the “urban nomad” visiting the city within a building that is the culmination of the emerging technologies of wood in the building construction eld. The structure will encompass a rail station, a hostel, The intersection of the Gold line and the Silver line will increase the number as well as amenity spaces for the hostel and the community. of travellers moving through the city, creating a demand for a ordable accomodations. Additionally, several key fatures promote an energy-e cient design. The rst is the woven wood facade that allows the bottom two levels of the building to be naturally cooled by allowing passive air ow and by providing shade at the same time. The second are the balconies that wrap around the hostel levels. These balconies provide equitable access to the city skyline for all TRANSIT 4 guests, while also providing shade to sub levels. The use of mirrored glass and these “wrap-around balconies” drastically reduce the amount of heat gain during the day, while still allowing daylight to enter the hostel rooms; this feature ties the interior and exterior spaces, reinforcing the connection gusts have with the city and the forestry culture of the state. The overlapping transit systems create a node that encourages movement The addition of a CLT storage facility, adds a layer of movement that connects the urban nomad and the process of forestry. This happens through the simultaneous use of train routes to move in and through the site and into city. out of the city. Due to the strategic location of Charlotte, and the immediate access to the train tracks, charlotte’s will be even more connected to an already emerging globalized market. Throughout the perimeter of the building, a series of plazas and parks will be adorned with pine trees arranged in a grid that resembles the structural grid of the wood columns within the building. Special OUTDOOR 1 connections such as these create a new standard in urban space, as well as dwelling space by connecting the process of forestry with the urban occupation. - Global Production Regions Mt.
