The Charlotte Research Institute (CRI) improvements creates a new gateway into campus by designing large lighted pillars, main signage, hardscape paths and seatwalls with a framed formal lawn area which simulates a “welcome mat” for visitors and guests. The CRI campus entrance is considered the second main entrance into campus. As the campus continues to grow and redevelopment progresses in response to the CATS Blue line extension, this side of campus will become a much denser development typology. Also, the football stadium will now be framed by this campus entrance feature.
