I actually didn't plan on doing that until your comment. I was just thinking of the happenings now and the near future.


By the way, I'm really curious what the average office floor height in Charlotte is, especially for the new projects. It seems higher than the other cities...or maybe it is just me?

This long-empty reminder of the Great Recession is about to be filled with new apartments

Quote:
Charlotte City Council approved a plan to build new apartments at a development just west of uptown that’s sat mostly idle since the recession, where developers plan to lure tenants with lower rents than nearby luxury apartments.

Phoenix-based Alliance Residential’s plans call for up to 350 new apartments at Wilkinson Boulevard and Suttle Avenue, on 10 overgrown acres where the Radiator Specialty Co.’s plant once stood. The plant was demolished to make way for a major new mixed-use development, but those plans fell through after the 2008 economic crash.

Since then, most of the site has sat vacant, even as development around it picks up, with Mecklenburg County buying a new, adjacent office building and more houses, shops and restaurants built in the surrounding neighborhoods.

“The West End is really hitting its stride, with great restaurants, interesting office and retail, and a unique character we want to embrace,” said Donald Santos, head of Alliance Residential’s Charlotte office, in a previous statement. “Our goal is to reposition this former office park site into a cool residential project for the community and the city.”

The apartments will include a clubhouse and pool, but no ground-floor retail. Alliance said the lack of pedestrians on Wilkinson and the fact that it’s mostly a divided, one-way thoroughfare along that stretch would make attracting retailers tough.

Construction is starting on new apartments along Charlotte’s Blue Line light rail

Quote:
An Atlanta-based developer is kicking off construction on new apartments next to the Blue Line light rail extension, in the Optimist Park neighborhood near NoDa.

Wood Partners has closed on its acquisition of a 2.3-acre site, paying more than $5.3 million for land at 25th and Brevard streets. That’s next to the 25th Street light rail station, set to start passenger service by March 2018. The site is currently used as a truck yard.

The company is building a 261-unit apartment building, which has yet to be named. Wood Partners expects to complete the apartments by early 2019. Amenities will include a saltwater pool, lounge, game room and public kitchen area for residents.
Quote:
There are some 2,000 apartments under construction or planned so far along the Blue Line extension, with more on the way.

Good news

Quote:
About 55.6% of the speculative development underway in Charlotte has been pre-leased, according to a new report out from JLL.

Across the market, 2.3 million square feet of space is under construction between speculative and build-to-suit projects. That's the highest amount of new construction that Charlotte has seen since 2008, when about 2.5 million square feet of space was being developed.

But based on high demand, low vacancy rates and rising rental rates, it appears that construction isn't getting ahead of itself yet. JLL (NYSE:JLL) notes that landlords in new spec projects in high-demand submarkets are marketing rates in the range of the mid- to upper $30s per square foot, a new high for the Queen City. Even with those higher rates in some areas, JLL predicts that tenants will have to compete for the best space in urban and suburban areas as leasing velocity is high.

AvidXchange is getting ready to open its new HQ, complete with pool tables, yoga studio and basketball courts

Quote:
Charlotte-based AvidXchange is planning to move employees into its new headquarters building in two weeks, a six-story building that includes amenities such as Xboxes, shuffleboard, multiple gyms and basketball courts.

But the most important thing the 200,000 square-foot building provides the payment automation company: Space to consolidate its local employees. The company now employs nearly 900, and AvidXchange’s new building at the AvidXchange Music Factory (The firm bought naming rights to the entertainment complex last year) will hold up to 1,000 workers in the same location.

The company currently has offices in nearby buildings, and should move all of its Charlotte employees into the new building by the end of July. And once it fills that space, AvidXchange has the option to build a second, nearly identical office building on the adjacent site.

I expect to have Concept Renderings of the Courthouse to share in September. Its going to be pretty nice, about 200 ft tall. I don't think 8 years is correct though, more like 5-6.

A decrepit but prominent shopping center in Charlotte will be torn down and redeveloped

Quote:
Say goodbye to one of the biggest eyesores on Independence Boulevard: A slowly crumbling retail center that’s long been mostly vacant is set for redevelopment.

The Coliseum Center, just past the Eastway Boulevard exit from Independence, will be demolished starting in July, developer Chris Bitterlin said. The 18.3-acre site is next to a Walmart Supercenter, and the $35 million new development will be called Coliseum Crossing.

“The redevelopment of the dilapidated Coliseum Center is long overdue,” said Bitterlin, president of Bitterlin Development Corp. and managing member of Manchester NC Coliseum, the partnership behind the redevelopment. “We are excited to deliver the Coliseum Crossing project to this highly visible location.”

Proposed Topgolf, apartments expose piece of Charlotte’s history: Unmarked slave cemetery

Quote:
The old cemetery next to Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church slopes gently down a hill, where a low stone wall separates the worn headstones and manicured grass from another, untended burial ground hidden in the woods: The final resting place for an unknown number of slaves.

It’s a piece of the city’s antebellum history bumping up against Charlotte’s present-day boom, a reminder of the year just before the Civil War, when about 6,800 of Mecklenburg County’s 17,000 residents – four out of every 10 – were enslaved. When they died, black slaves were buried separately from whites, usually in poorly marked graves outside of white cemeteries, a practice that continued when slavery ended but segregation persisted.

The graveyard came to light in recent weeks, during the fight over developers’ plans to build a Topgolf entertainment venue and up to 395 apartments, on almost 66 acres of wooded land at Mallard Creek Church Road and Interstate 85. Some neighbors, who oppose the plan because they think it will bring noise, light pollution and traffic, raised concerns about the possibility of unmarked slave graves on the developers’ property.
