Kings of the Queen City

The Community Builder

Posted June 2018 by Emily Glaser in the South Charlotte Lifestyle

Charlotte is a beautiful city, and the architectural creations of Steve Onxley sit like perfect puzzle pieces in our skyline. His firm, Onxley Architecture, has garnered laudations for projects like Sovereign Grace Church and a preservation award for Central Elementary School in Albemarle. “I really enjoy helping a client realize their vision for their project and sharing the client’s delight in experiencing the beauty and proper utilization of their build space,” says the architect.

When Onxley isn’t busy shaping our skyline, he’s shaping the community that resides within it and the city that he loves through the Rotary, as a longtime member of the YMCA and an officer of Christ Covenant Church, and as the Charter Organization Representative for Trail Life USA Troop 413. When asked for advice, his words are simple, yet revelatory: “Put your family first in making decisions concerning where you should live and how you should play.”
