The building draws from the roots of its location, offering a mix of wood, steel and concrete with office and showroom space that is contemporary within a traditional structure. The third and final building in this phased project is LEED Silver certified.

Factory South Lofts

Formally the Lance Building, this property was converted into an 85 unit mixed-use community in 1997. The commercial space houses a variety of shops and restaurants and while unique loft units make up the upper floors. In 2001 with the expertise and assistance of MECA, the community underwent a $250,000 full scale renovation. Since MECA began management, property values have doubled and Factory South Lofts is known as one of the most financially stable associations in Charlotte.

Gateway Lofts

A 2002 addition to the Gateway Village area of Uptown Charlotte’s 3rd Ward, Gateway Lofts is made up of 80 two level residential lofts and Retail units housing neighborhood restaurants and a mini mart. MECA’s management scope extends to elevator lobby and parking areas shared with Gateway Village and include developing and maintaining relationships to aid in the smooth operation of this mixed use building in a high traffic area. Since beginning management in 2011, MECA has successfully worked with the Board and community to establish a budget which will promote a better financial course and ensure all aspects of the building are properly maintained.

Gateway Plaza-Share Space launch

Developed in 2002 by Boulevard Centro, MECA took over management of this 116 unit mixed use property in 2010. Amenities managed in this secure building include a shared parking garage, pool, roof deck and clubroom.

Heathstead

This 55 acre property features tennis courts, 2 pools, clubhouse, laundry facilities and private roads. MECA added Heathstead to its portfolio in 2012 and is very proud of all that has been accomplished in this 544 unit community. Coupled with great leadership, MECA’s management style, effective systems and organized processes have been keys to this property’s successes in reducing delinquency by over 50%, making significant progress on building and property maintenance and repair and establishing a detailed maintenance and capital improvement plan.

Olmsted Park

This 138 unit conversion project in Dilworth sits on what used to be Charlotte’s minor league baseball park. The 12.5 acres feature several buildings, private streets, a pool and clubhouse. A healthy balance of maintenance and improvement projects in this community has been aided tremendously by a comprehensive Vision Plan created at the suggestion of MECA Realty when the community was first established.

Ordermore 8

Developed in 2009 by McAllister Residential Group, Ordermore 8 is a unique 8 unit townhouse style condominium community with craftsman detailing located in Dilworth.
