Charlotte's new multifamily mid-rise will feature exposed mass timber

Construction recently kicked off for Oxbow, a mass timber multifamily community in Charlotte’s The Mill District. The $97.8 million project, consisting of 389 rental units and 14,300 sf of commercial space, sits on 4.3 acres that formerly housed four commercial buildings. The street-level retail is designed for boutiques, coffee shops, and other neighborhood services.

The structure will be composed of a two-story concrete podium housing below-grade parking, topped with a five-story hybrid structure of stick frame with cross-laminated timber slab. About 50% of the structure will feature exposed mass timber ceilings using Austrian Spruce timber.
