Portman SouthEnd – Hawkins btw Ashton and Sycamore.

Recommended Posts

Also - they said this photo represents the ultimate build-out.  What's actually built could be smaller although I personally would like to see the ultimate build-out constructed.  I think Hawkins and the area can handle it.

The revised site plan for the Portman project.  I still don't know about this being located on  2 lane street with 2 lane streets all around it.   Check out the massing diagram.

It is very close to this very important corporate office too photo below  where egress and ingress is important not to mention Sycamore Brewing.

Speaking of Portman I can't believe their One Charlotte tower is still on their website. 

Maybe someone should dust off this plan and built it at Legacy.  47 story tower 577 feet tall.  It is  great looking tower.  It was to built as condos at the site of the 615 Region Building today.  Maybe it could be built as apartments.  

Johno:  call Portman up and see if they would build this next to your huge parking deck at Legacy.

Speaking about what I know (office) this is the first deal this cycle in Charlotte that is a real head scratcher. No matter how you look at it just not an office location. However I think they are gaining a huge advantage by getting in the ground.

- A minimum of 50% of the Site's ground floor building frontage along Hawkins Street and the light rail line, will be occupied with active ground floor uses.

with a hopeful link directly to Atherton.

A pedestrian bridge over the tracks or just using the planned crossing / station?

From what I hear, station is being prioritized over the bandaid fix of a crossing.

The crossing was always going to be built to accommodate a future station, so if the station is now a priority then that would explain why it hasn't been built yet.

I really hope this gets built on this scale. I LOVE what it will do for that area. I was just down the street this weekend restaurant hopping at the design center- that area is really becoming a walkable/special area of Southend.

Do we know the architect?  It reminds me of Dimensional Place, which is Duda Paine, and hopefully we get something complimentary.

Are you serious about the building height being protested?

Terry Shook (architect) attended the community meeting on the rezoning with the development team.  Don't know if he was acting as sort of a local connections consultants or their  architect, but it seemed a little weird for the previous owner to attend the rezoning meeting.

He could be a part owner of the venture if he contributed part of his land value. Common to do for tax planning purposes.
