Along Cheshire Bridge, dual apartment projects rising

Formerly seedy corridor is rapidly changing as gentrification sweeps through

Cheshire Bridge, once a corridor teeming with strip club and adult-oriented business, is getting a little more vanilla.

Construction of two apartment buildings—one on the site of the former Doll House Gentlemen’s Club—is moving along. Dubbed Accent Morningside and Accent 2050, the dual projects by developer Westplan will ultimately bring 437 apartments to the corridor.

Accent 2050, designed by Dwell Design Studios, will feature 198 apartments, 38 bicycle storage spaces, and more than 4,000 square feet of amenities. Expect a courtyard with a pool deck, as well as rooftop amenities spaces atop a parking deck.

Across the street, Accent Morningside will fill a much larger lot with 239 apartment units. Specifics about the building are scarce, but expect much of the same as far as amenities.

The properties join Helios Apartments—which opened last year on the northern end of Cheshire Bridge, near Interstate 85—and Modera Morningside (recently rebranded as Morningside by Windsor), at the far southern end of Cheshire Bridge at Piedmont Road.
