Located in a suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina, the City of Kannapolis is undergoing a $30 million revitalization to its downtown core, featuring a plan to build more pedestrian-friendly areas and public greenspaces. The new streetscape includes a series of water features that engage passersby, with the signature fountain designed to bring people into the feature. Stretching nearly 30 feet long, this feature boasts 30 angled clear-stream nozzles that spray in a 12-foot-tall arc, creating a tunnel of water for guests to be fully immersed in the fountain. At night, the color-changing LED lights illuminate the streams for a dazzling and inviting feature that anchors the new downtown district. This interactive fountain is another addition to Martin Aquatic’s large portfolio of projects.
For this project’s interactive water feature, Martin Aquatic provided the hydraulic, structural, filtration, and chemical system design and engineering services.
