The Mecklenburg County Bar & Foundation Center is a modern, functional facility equipped with everything needed to help lawyers connect with the community and each other. The Center helps to capture and define the stature of the legal profession’s prominence in Mecklenburg County now and for years to come.

With approximately 24,000 square feet, the Bar & Foundation Center is four times the size of the former Queens Road headquarters and has 150 parking spaces and leading-edge technology throughout the building. The increased facility size offers the Bar and the Foundation more flexibility in use of the Center and offers lawyers both informal and formal places to gather, as well as large sites for seminars, training and networking events.  Meeting, conference and event space are available for Bar members to use during normal business hours. 

The Center at 2850 Zebulon Ave., Charlotte, NC 28208 is centrally located, only 2.2 miles from the intersection of Trade and Tryon in uptown Charlotte, and easily accessible from interstates 85, 77 and 277.  In short, the Bar & Foundation Center is designed and situated to fully serve Bar members and enhance their professional lives and service to others.

In support of the Bar & Foundation Center, a naming rights campaign was established. The naming rights campaign was designed to ensure the following goals:

  • Enhanced finishes and features that reflect the stature of the legal profession;
  • Functionality, with current technology and flexible meeting spaces; 
  • Fiscal responsibility and a plan for sustainability of the new Center once it is completed; and
  • An awareness of the historic, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create the appropriate home and focal point for lawyers in Mecklenburg County for years to come by honoring lawyers and law firms with a lasting legacy for their contributions to Mecklenburg County’s vibrant legal community.

The naming rights campaign raised almost $1.2 million. A special thanks to Campaign Co-Chairs Dianne C. Bailey, John W. Lassiter, DeWitt F. McCarley, the entire Campaign Cabinet and the Major Gifts Committee. Gifts to the campaign are recognized on plaques in the lobby of the Bar & Foundation Center.
