The Black Wall Street Experience will be a world-class culture and innovation destination anchored in community and opportunity with a people-centered design that will be a catalyst for rebirthing Greenwood through arts, technology, and entertainment.
The modern designed buildings are a vision of Greenwood's future. Most of the Structures will have a brick podium base and a combination of brick and cement panels for the upper structure. Retail spaces will have aluminum storefront windows resting on12” granite base. The upper floors of the buildings are a combination of fiber cement panels and corrugated metal panels, with touches of wood, and Low E glass windows.
Residential balconies will overlook open spaces and rooftop terraces to have glass railings so as not to obstruct views. The Units will offer quality enhancements for the new residents to the area. The units will have quality finishes which will further enhance the impression generated by the modern exterior. All the units will have floor-to-ceiling windows, with balconies.
