DPR's first office was located on Providence Road, in historic Myers park. In 1980, to accommodate a growing staff, DPR acquired and renovated a former 7th Street residence in the historic Elizabeth neighborhood. In 1982, DPR became the first N.C. Landscape Architecture practice in recent history to add in-house civil engineering to provide comprehensive land development services.
DPR moved in 1995 to our present location on Hawthorne Lane. Remaining in the Elizabeth neighborhood, we are conveniently located to Charlotte uptown, I-277, I-77, and I-85.
Two of the original founding partners, Lee McLaren and Tom Duggins, remain with DPR today. DPR currrently employs over twenty experienced and dedicated Landscape Architecture and Civil Engineering professionals. In September 2008, DPR will celebrate our 35th year of service throughout North and South Carolina.
