A building with a story & views of Uptown
We envisioned Launch Factory to bring community workspace to one of Charlotte’s oldest historic buildings.
The General Dyestuff Building was constructed in 1939 and supported the textile industry. Originally German-owned and operated, the US government took control of the building in 1942, during World War II, because of its enemy affiliation.
Today, many of the original building elements remain from the wooden beams and brick walls to the large industrial windows and loading docks. Even one of the building entrances passes through the original freight elevator.
In our common areas, you’ll find vintage photographs, many sample dye templates, and original textiles. The oversized windows offer an abundance of natural light and great views of Uptown Charlotte.
Upscale Coworking in a Relaxed Environment
We designed Launch Factory for the demands of today’s workforce. In 2016, we opened the doors of our first suite to the Charlotte community and beyond. Then in 2019, we expanded to add more offices, meeting rooms, and coworking opportunities for our members. We are now located on the entire third floor of The General Dyestuff Building.
The interior is modern with offices featuring original architectural details, such as lofted ceilings and exposed brick walls. Take a break in our cafe to enjoy the SuitePlants living plant wall along with a local amenity like coffee or kombucha.
