Westin Hotel & Charlotte Convention Center / Charlotte, NC

Convention Center final

The Details

The Westin plays a prominent role in the City’s ability to attract large meetings and conventions. With 700 rooms, more than 44,000 square feet of meeting and pre-function space, and the City’s largest hotel ballroom at 16,276 square feet, this has been touted as one of the most successful public / private partnership projects in Charlotte.

Stewart provided the existing conditions survey and all of the site work design. This included a major utility relocation, excavation plans, traffic control plans, grading, phasing and utilities, underslab utility design and UMUD related landscape, streetscape and the associated urban open space design, including an electric trolley station.

Prior to the completion of the Westin, Stewart served as the landscape and horticultural consultant to the City of Charlotte in preparing construction documents for streetscape planting within the public right-of-ways surrounding the Charlotte Convention Center. Stewart researched appropriate plant material, relocated existing material from other City properties and prepared final landscape and irrigation construction plans.
