Vantage South End - 1100 S Tryon

Recommended Posts

If you notice that garage has a flat first floor that could be converted into storefronts with parking above.

Isn’t that what it already is...

I think he's referring to my post concerning the garage next to Brevard Court, which has the flexibility for first-floor retail.  The Grant Thorton move to South End sort of signaled a sidebar on how Uptown might want to remake itself, and one of the ideas was expanding Brevard Court (its look and feel) by tearing down the garages on each side of MLK, so Brevard Court would be less of an alley-way, and more of an entertainment district/strip.

This second building seems to be going up a bit quicker than the first. Maybe it just seems that way. I remember they used a mobile crawler crane to erect the steel for the first one. This one they have a tower crane set up. Obviously they had room for the crawler to begin with and now they don’t. Even with the room, I wonder why they didn’t just use a tower crane on the first one? I guess cost.

Yes it costs more.  Tower Cranes takes longer to install and the operators are paid more.  Crawler Crane is faster.

One of the best projects coming out the ground in CLT.

Totally agree. And it's awesome how quickly the second office tower is rising!

This picture just reminded me of the lot Enterprise is on.  The likelihood this Vantage project's view is disrupted by a future project is high.  It would be unfortunate to block the little urban park's view between the two towers, however, it's bound to happen I would think.  Would love to see some good density with all these empty lots starting at this enterprise all the way to 277 (Uptown Cab, Cigar club lot, etc).  Infill on those lots are going to be crucial with truly making the transition from Uptown to South End seamless and vice versa. 

As a reminder, the Enterprise building is considered a non-designated property eligible for historic designation. It's had some bad renovation work, but is otherwise considered a good example of 50s modernist design.

Pre-covid, I heard rumors of a tower slated for the Enterprise lot. Last I heard,  it's still slowly moving forward/on the back burner, but rumors are rumors. 400'+
