AP3

Charlotte Metro Tower | 40 Story Duke Energy Tower

Recommended Posts


I would assume the demolition costs at 526 S Church would be cost prohibitive due to the size of the building as long as there are other parcels available Uptown that would not require demolition.  In other words, I would think a developer would have to build an absolutely huge building to justify the land acquisition and that large of a demolition job.  That is a complete assumption though, so I could be wrong.

I've heard from a trusted source that the height is nothing huge.

Positive spin: points to already having a rough design.

Also means "The Green" space may not be sunk into eternal shadow

Any more info on this? How much of the site would be taken over? Height?

 

The biggest negative is this is ANOTHER site which will go by the wayside that could be a flagship hotel.

Two acres is enough space for both.

That data center site on s. college beside the convention center would be a perfect spot for a thousand room hotel.

Exactly my thoughts

From glancing at Google Earth earlier, this plot of land looks pretty similar in size to the plot where 300/Kimpton are built on.  I could def see the office tower fronting Tryon st and the hotel portion fronting college.  Would also be directly across from the convention center.  Could imagine the same type setup like 300/kimpton there possibly.  If there is no hotel aspect, I wonder how they will utilize all that space in that lot?  Once everything is all said and done though (this tower, TP, LH, and hopefully all the retail surrounding these projects), I see the intersection of Tryon/Stonewall giving Trade/Tryon a run for it's money!

Is this thing actually going to have a hotel component or is that just speculation at this point?

I was under the impression that the whole project is still complete speculation.

maybe a little taller, but not by much.

At 525 that would make it taller than BOFA Plaza building which is at 503 and shorter than the Vue at 560, which make it the 6th tallest.

That is awesome for this site!

Personally I think it could be as tall as 600, just depends on top of the building, how its built out.

and how much podium parking is used ;)

Wouldn't mind some like the Hines spec tower in Denver where floors 3-12 are parking, about 605' 36 floors or so.  Like how they hid the parking better than ascent.

Somebody correct me please... $25m land cost has to be 25% or less of the total project cost.  So total project cost is min $100m.  So if we say $300/sf the project is 333,333sf min. 2 acres is 87,120sf so..... it is possible we will get a 5 story apartment building?!?!?!?

I'll move back to Florida if that's what we get.
