Lord Aeck Sargent’s Mark Lange: Designs For Charlotte
Lord Aeck Sargent principal Mark Lange likes a challenge, and in our business that means doing complex, mixed-use projects in transit-oriented urban areas. He started his architectural career in bustling Houston before moving on to Atlanta for game-changing office buildings, hotels, and multifamily work. Mark designs projects in cities across the Southeast and he says a key to taking Charlotte to the next level is public transportation (a serious appreciation of light rail and streetcar trolley lines, for starters). He says the definition of “Uptown Charlotte” is broadening and is no longer simply focused on the financial center—and dependable mass transit will energize that expanding urban fabric. Mark adds that complex mixed-use adds big value to any community, and car-shunning Millennials are calling the future shots, which are purely pedestrian. When it comes to taking Charlotte to tomorrow, keep an eye on Mark. For more info on our sponsor, Lord Aeck Sargent, click here.
