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

Recommended Posts


Not bad, but what does the other side of the building look like?  That's going to be the side that most of us will be looking at when this thing is complete.

Well, I guess it's a huge undertaking. *sarcasm*

Yep - definitely won't be ready in time for a possible RNC 2020.  Maybe that's by design to avoid riots?

Uh, no...

Seems like it should be a perfectly decent addition to Uptown's scape, but the description of the brand makes my skin crawl. l like my hotels boring. 

I'm with you.  However, this sounds like a copy of the Aloft brand and I find those perfectly pleasant places to stay.

Is it seriously pink like that? Charlotte has enough pink buildings as it is.

It's not even Arlington pink... it's like Mean Girls pink

Either way I support this hotel's construction.  I think it'll add interest to the surrounding city blocks and maybe even spark other development for the adjacent Parking Lots.  Too bad Brevard Condo Tower didnt gain any traction.  Maybe another more modestly priced one can be viable in the future.

Where else is their pink Uptown? That section of Uptown in particular is very beige. The color could be a nice add of personality.

I was referring to the Arlington. I never specified Uptown. There’s beige, therefore we need pink to offset the beige?

We don't need pink specifically, but in that area I think it will look good, brings some personality, fits the hotel brand, and is far enough away from the Arlington that it won't look like a cluster of pink.

This project is weirdly exciting to me.  

It is an area that in theory should have been very hot for development a long time ago, when we had all that exciting Nascar Hall of Fame, convention center rebuilding, Epicenter development, and the arena itself.  It is also not only a block away from the most notable light rail station but also the end of the line of the already build Gold line phase I.  Then there was the Brevard St plan that pretended that Brevard was going to become some magical pedestrian street between the convention center and arena.

But we all somewhat know a number of factors that has kept this zone quiet.   

But not only do we have a colorful and decently tall hotel project. but they didn't even take up all the parcels along Brevard.  It is a very compact parcel, which is great for continuing to keep our skyline compact when theoretically other parking parcels in the area get developed.

City Council approved a zoning change last night. Is it still thought construction won't start till late 2019 or even 2020? I'm hopeful this will help trigger more redevelopment on the adjoining lots.

Updated renderings of the Moxy Hotel at 15 stories and no pink. 206 rooms and a 2021 opening. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/development/article228177534.html

lost 20 rooms and got 5 floors shorter, how disapointing.

      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.

      A 400 room 24 story convention hotel proposed for Devos Place? Hmmmm I'm surprised to see something like this one sliped under the Urban Planet radar.  http://www.mlive.com/business/west-michigan/index.ssf/2017/04/new_400-room_hotel_proposed_at.html

      I lived in a high-rise condo uptown for a few years, when you looked out over the city, the 6-7 story mid-rise condo building had the A/C units setup in little grids all around the roof.  And same thing for our building, at the top of our building there is a rooftop terrace and if you looked over to one side you would see the A/C units lined up in nice groups of 4-6 units. The picture of the Stonewall Station apartment condo's brought this back for me (see picture below)
      When I was looking at it, each grouping almost perfectly corresponds to a footprint of a small 6-8 panel solar array.
      Benefits:
      With commercial solar panels at 21+% efficiency, a condo tower or mid-rise building could cover all the common electrical needs with these arrays + a decent battery backup. No one can argue that it is ugly, because this would be about a 12-24 inches above the already ugly A/C units on the roof. You are still connected to the grid for backup power. (need to run some simulations) but COA (HOA for condos) costs could be tamed or even lowered based on actual design and sun exposure for a particular condo. Drawback:
      Initial cap-ex of construction is higher. lets say it is $200k for the full solar array system with 200kWh battery storage  (based on https://electrek.co/2016/11/14/tesla-powerpack-2-price/ costs) if the building has 200 units that is $1000 more at sale of the condo unit... Would love your thoughts.
