Moore Hall, a new six-story residence hall at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, has officially begun construction after a delay in 2020.
The 147,00-sf project will replace the old Moore and Sanford Hall towers to complete the upper south village residential quad and provide a direct pathway to the South Village Dining Hall. “The design of Moore Hall combines modern features and sustainability, while providing new students with a welcoming atmosphere to make them feel at home,” said KWK Principal Paul Wuennenberg, in a release.
Moore Hall was designed with the first-year student in mind. The project includes traditional double rooms for up to 692 residents and their Resident Advisors. Resident rooms will be supported by shared bathrooms for more privacy, with lounges and study rooms on each floor. The design also includes a community kitchen, a laundry room, a gaming area, and office and living space for Housing and Residence Life staff.
Moore Hall is slated to open in August 2023. KWK Architects designed the project with Jenkins Peer Architects as the architect-of-record.
