Brevard @ 4th St - Moxy Hotel - 20 Story - 226ft tower

Recommended Posts

Oh my, much taller than I expected! Although it doesn't gobble up much in the way of surface parking. Maybe that's being eyed by larger concerns ?

I'll take it, makes the historic buildings on the corner of Trade much harder to remove and redevelop.

Different land owners, different projects. Parcels surrounding this project are all owned by Ellen Fleming Gibson of EFG Enterprises... just a holding company. Interesting/cool part of EFG land holding on that block: they have access from Trade, Brevard and 4th Streets.

GOOD! I hate seeing single buildings that aren't of a significant height consume entire blocks. I hate surface lots as much as everyone else, but I'd rather see a surface lot remain with potential for future development than see a small building spread its legs around an entire block.

Fantasy: Spectrum Center to be entirely surrounded by high rises.

I wonder if the Hornets have considered a retail-entertainment center like so many other sports franchises are doing ?

Maybe they figure they'd just be competing with EpiCenter ?

There is certainly a better way to have pedestrian interaction between the Arena and a entertainment center, than EpiCentre and Spectrum currently align. Also there is room for some cool rooftop bars above the old building across the street at a better scale than EpiCentre.

There was an entire stroll district proposed on Brevard and then the Nascar Hall of Fame happened, and blew up a large portion of the possibility of a stroll district.

There is an archived thread about this from 12 years ago (no joke) lol

Since there is no pictures linked any longer, here you go.

That plan was with the NASCAR Hall of Fame already in the plans.

I thought there was another updated version of Brevard Street project that still kept many of the features.

This is exactly what I think about every smaller-footprint development.

I hate "superblock" style developments, especially when they're unnecessary, this hotel doesn't need to take an entire block, and it's not going to. It opens up room for variety. Another good example of a well diversified block would be the block containing 300 South Tryon and the Latta Arcade. You have bars and restaurants, specialty shops, boutique office space, a 5 star hotel, conference rooms, Class A (or AA?) office space, a parking garage (boo) and the chamber of commerce, which I believe also has office space upstairs.

I’m excited to have another pink building in the center city area. I don’t like pink, but it’s a nice diversity.

Looks quite nice actually IMO, especially for some vacant lot with surface parking.

Good, as long as it wasnt me who posted this :)

      An uncomfortable question, but one that needs to be asked, in light of 'rona and riots:  how bad a long-term hit has the demand for office space and hotel rooms taken?  I don't want to leave out residential, retail, bars and restaurants, parking garages, and public/cultural facilities, which are already having a tough time, but office and hotel  demand seems to be in a particularly difficult long-term spot.  
      Years ago, one of the big commercial real estate companies, in conjunction with, as I recall, the Central Charlotte Association (since absorbed by the Charlotte Chamber) kept a running count of office vecancy by building.  Is such a list still being maintained?  What's the real vacancy rate for uptown office space?  And by "real," I mean stats which avoid double-counting leases (counting as occupied both the space that Law Firm X is currently leasing but is scheduled to leave, and the space they will occupy in a new building).  Surely it has become a renters' market, given the massive office square footage recently added or under construction.  It seems obvious that the new buildings will have to slash their rental rates and/or increase their tenant upfit allowances, as well as offer deeply discounted or free parking.  But the real hammer might fall on the so-called Class B buildings which were built in the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.  Take, for example, the 400 South Tryon building, the gold and white building known as Wachovia Center in the 70s and 80s, and later occupied mostly by Duke Power (now Duke Energy).  is Duke still the major tenant there?  If so, not for long, I would surmise.  What about BB&T Center, at 200 South College?  Southern Bell was for many years its majority tenant; when they left, Bank of America took most of their space for back-office operations.  But now, in addition to BB&T leaving, BofA has greatly reduced its space, and I would guess might leave entirely.  Who would fill the building?  And the once-tallest and most prestigious office building uptown, the all-glass BofA Plaza, will certainly have some move-outs.  What about One, Two, and Three Wells Fargo?  Is Wells occupying more space than they need?
      If anything, the hotel situation may be more dire.  I trust the NFL and NBA will be fully back in a year or less, but it will be a long time before the convention business bounces back.  That's the life blood of hotels, of course, and new hotel rooms, from economical to luxe, are rapidly coming on line.
      I hate to be negative.  I've always been a Charlotte booster.  Would anyone like to demonstrate that things look better than I think they do?

      Just a link to the MPB staff report.
      I combined Ph 2 tower and Ph 3 former Church Street Station re-work as it seems they are both ramping up to start.

      Photos from today this JW Marriott hotel at Plant Riverside  is getting ready to open in November of this year.  This is a great project new construction blending with renovated old power plant all along the Savannah River. This project will include an extension of the riverwalk further towards the bridge.
