The last time you whizzed down Morehead on your way to Rhino Market or Town Brewing, did you notice that the incredible art deco building across the street at 1401-09 West Morehead Street? The building’s corners along Morehead are adorned with intricate stone Coke bottles and there’s a laser-perfect Coca-Cola logo above the door.
According to a 1987 report by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission, the building was completed in 1930 and served as headquarters for Coca-Cola Bottling operations in Charlotte until 1974. It was designed by Marion Rossiter “Steve” Marsh, a prominent architect in the region and its whimsical ornamental details were created by Ornamental Stone Company of Charlotte.
