QUEENS UNIVERSITY OF CHARLOTTE
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA
Working with staff, faculty and the board of directors, Sally Coyle led the design of a landscape master plan for this 25-acre campus. The plan addressed short-term concerns such as siting a communications
tower, parking and landscape maintenance. Long-term goals were also addressed including physical expansion and removing vehicles from the campus interior. The plan included a tree inventory and assessment and concept plans and budgets for restoration of all of the major landscaped
areas and gardens.
The plan to remove vehicles from the campus green was implemented. An access drive was removed restoring a continuous green space and linking all of the campus quads.
The architect for this part of the project was Joddy Peer of Jenkins Peer Architects.
Later, a 70-foot-high brick bell tower was constructed to enclose a telecommunications structure. Although beautifully designed, the large structure made this secondary campus entry more prominent.
At the request of the Board of Directors, Sally Coyle prepared a concept plan, sketches, and budget for
redesigning the south entry in a manner appropriate to the new edifice.
