good to see a charlotte thread here.....there's much to keep track of. thanks!

Wheelingman04 May 9, 2007 8:09 PM

Damn, those towers are gorgeous!!

kazpmk May 9, 2007 10:44 PM

Nice to finally see a Charlotte thread. I didn't know BofA Superblock or the Overture already began construction.

Visiteur May 10, 2007 12:14 AM

Most of those look pretty good. It will help enhance Charlotte's cosmopolitan image greatly.

SpeedoPro May 13, 2007 2:31 AM

what about Trump's tower? does anyone have pics of it?

SeeMoreSkyscrapers May 28, 2007 8:51 PM

Update: 5/28/07

Added a couple renderings I was missing:
-Trinity Parners (500W. Trade) development 20-30 Stories X2 (Two Possibilities)
-Ghazi's SouthPark tower 16-18 Stories

-Also site work has begun at Royal Court, once they begin making substantial progress here I'll move it up into the U/C Area.

-Official Groundbreaking for The Vue has been set for July 12th 2007. Minimal Site prep and demolition of existing structures has commenced. Will move it up to U/C when Excavation begins.

-Trump rumor has been confirmed (Charlotte Observer, City Officials) and they have been in town feeling out the market. Possibility of more information in the next few months.

By the way the condo tower for Wachovia is underconstruction. Both towers are being built at the same time.

RockHillJames Jun 4, 2007 1:16 PM

Thanks for putting this together. I'm sure it was a lot of work!

Hopefully we'll have some Trump renderings to post soon...

SeeMoreSkyscrapers Jun 5, 2007 3:59 AM

Hmm, really wish they wouldn't have combined these two threads considering none of the photos work in the other post. Can anything be done about this? It was slipping away into the archives but then one of the mods brought them together unfortunantely.

Ohh well, As per the wachovia condo's I'm waiting untill excavation of the entry ramp is done before I'm adding it to the u/c list since no work has been done specifically for that portion thus far. Should be another month or so.

James Bond Agent 007 Jun 5, 2007 6:28 AM

There were two threads on the topic so I combined them a few days ago.

But yeah, you're right, the other one was a pretty useless thread so I just un-merged them and trashed the other one.

Where did all the Charlotte forumers go??:(

VA_Gentleman Jul 12, 2007 8:24 PM

Thanks for transferring all the updates over here. There is a lot going on down there but no one covering it. One of my best buddies just moved to Charlotte but he's not at all interested in buildings and construction so he'll be of no help. Hopefully there will be some more active Charlotte forumers, otherwise keep up the updates.

ChiSoxRox Jul 12, 2007 9:56 PM

Thanks, SMS, for starting this thread. Charlotte already has an outstanding skyline for a city its size, and looks to only get better. There are cities many times bigger that would kill to have Charlotte's skyline. I especially like One Charlotte Tower. :tup:

And a request: could you please make the Spirit Square rendering smaller? Something that blurry and big is not nice on the eyes. :koko:

mayhem Jul 12, 2007 10:54 PM

Tons of awesome towers going up in Charlotte! Can't wait to see it's skyline progress.

CHAPINM1 Jul 13, 2007 2:15 PM

I'm also keeping my eye on the Charlotte thread, despite all the great projects, the Wachovia project I am most excited for and will be the most fun to watch rise!

That's cool in the Wachovia project construction update you can see the tunnel that was mentioned on Emporis.

Dale Jul 13, 2007 4:25 PM

Hang on, what did I miss ? Will Wachovia feature a pedestrian tunnel under Tryon ?

SeeMoreSkyscrapers Jul 25, 2007 8:05 PM

Alright guys, made a quick update:

-Added/changed info on 15 story Sierra hotel on the small arena parcel
-Changed BOFA Superblock rendering to a newer (Nicer/smaller) one

Other things to note.

-I've seen the newer rendering for the ritz on the contactors website and its nice, almost as nice as the original proposal but still much better then the previous glass box representation. Another thing to note is the BofA is seeking LEED Platinum certification for their superblock project. Very few bldg's reach this certification. I hate that we don't have a height for the office tower yet but I'd guess its in the 470-510 range. The first major pooring of concrete for the hotel foundation took place the other night.

-The wachovia first street project is moving quickly (As seen in the above pictures, thanks btw.) The tower portion has reached ground level at one corner. Expect it to start rising above ground in another month or so. Clearing is still taking place for the condo portion but I'll move it up to U/C as soon as they get underway (Trust me).

-Novare's 3rd ward project will be accelerating soon with the arrival of mobile cranes and caison equipment onsite this last week. Catalyst caison and foundation work should be well underway in the coming months with the 15 floor Office tower starting the begining of 08 and the 39 story Twelve following soon after.

-300 S. Tryon site has been seeing some action with soil sampling and the arrival of construction trailors and mobile crane equipment. They have some clearing work to do onsite but this is def. a step in the right direction. This is one of my favorite projects as it will fill in one of the last surface lots along tryon street and help fill out Charlotte's smile a little.

-Nascar HOF site has been cleared and excavation has begun for the underground parking garage. Should be a while before they start actual structural construction however work is well under way.

-The park condo's have toped out.... wow.... Many people where happily proved wrong on this one. Even though the tower isn't that tall (270ft) its definitely making its presence known.

-Trademark should be 100% complete soon, so I'm anxiously awaiting when I can remove it from the list. Avenue still has a while to go (Interior finishing wise) but should be finished by the end of the year. (That blue glass is glorious, great tower)

Thats all the new news I have.... or could remember at least.

oreo Aug 9, 2007 8:50 AM

heres a few pics of avenue (?) from my recent trip across the US

taken july 30th

i guess you can see trademark in this one too

i dont know if this has been said before (probably has) but the wachovia office tower looks really f-in good.

While driving around Charlotte we saw 2 very deep holes around the downtown area. Judging by the pictures in this thread I'm going to guess that they were Wachovia and BofA.

themaguffin Aug 9, 2007 5:28 PM

That's an impressive list. There seems to be a LOT happening there. It seems that Charlotte is hitting another level and hitting a stride.

Has retail been developing as well? Is the area a destination for locals (other than sport and work)?
