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.

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.

      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.
