Queens Terrace Apartments

1300 Queens Road

Charlotte, Mecklenburg

 c.  1961 

            Queens Terrace Apartments are now Queens Towers Condominiums.  Located on Queens Road, this building is situated in the midst of older single family homes, although additional apartment buildings have been constructed in this neighborhood.  The building is irregularly shaped with three stories resting on concrete columns or stilts which allow for parking areas under the building.  The flat roof has deep eaves. 

            Balconies with concrete floors are located throughout and the windows are alumnium framed casements.  The site includes mature trees and landscape elements, a swimming pool, parking lot, and car ports. Designed by Louis H. Asbury & Associates, the building is an excellent example of a Modernist apartment building that retains a high level of integrity.
