Goodbye Uptown. Hello NoDa!

Anyone who knows the Croixstone team knows that we’re changemakers at heart.  And this week we’re thrilled to announce a big change as we relocated in June 2020 to a larger office in Charlotte’s NoDa district.  

The historic events of 2020 will catalyze seismic changes in both American society and business.  We can’t think of a better place to foster the creativity needed to drive these changes than Charlotte’s beloved arts district. 

As long-term community members and supporters of Industrious Charlotte, we’re pioneering as Industrious NoDa has opened the district’s first Class A office space in a converted warehouse (originally part of the historic Newco Fibre Mill complex near North Davidson and 36th Streets). 

While COVID-19 still has us social distancing and largely working from home, the Croixstone team invites you to virtually tour our new home here.
