Project Slugger office building in downtown Greensboro

Recommended Posts


Still a great looking building and the first new class A office tower in downtown Greensboro in years and years.

There is a slight change in the design from the 9 story version but I like the modified design better even if its 3 stories shorter.

I'm also glad the building will have ground level retail and a bar/cafe.

Looks lank Landmark Builders are gearing up for construction on Project Slugger office building across the street from Hyatt Place/Carroll at Bellmeade and overlooking First National Bank Field. Part of the ballpark plaza and children's playground is fenced off with Landmark Builders fencing.

This also means the future 8 story parking deck across the street on the south will be under construction soon. In less than a month well see Roy Carroll's development plans around the deck.

This looks really nice.  When does construction start?

Suppose to begin summer or early fall

It looks great.  It reminds me of the buildings surrounding the Durham Bulls stadium.

 

 

 

What’s the exact address of the site where this tower will go?

Will the new parking deck also be on Bellemeade between Eugene and Commerce?  Also, is Carroll expected to begin the retail/office project that will surround the deck as soon as the deck is ready or does he plan to wait for an office tenant to prelease the space?

The deck will be in the lot below the ballpark in the aerial but it will not be fronting the streets. The office/hotel tower will be built along Bellemeade at the corner of Eugene between the stadium and the parking deck. Retail will front Eugene Street. So the deck will be hidden from the streets. No word exactly where residential is going and we'll have to find out if Roy Carroll does indeed build a convention center on site. If he does it would likely be built at the corner of Eugene and West Friendly Ave. We should find out about Carroll's timetable when he announces the project May 1st. But the whole project will take up almost an entire city block.  A building below the lot will have to be demolished

Hopefully it won't take as long as it did to build Carroll at Bellemeade. But my guess is that we'd have to wait 6 months to a year before the county vacates the building before it is torn down for Carroll's development. Completion date depends on when he starts construction. But expect it to take at least 2 years considering the size and scope of his project particularly if he decides to build a convention center on site. If Carroll gets the ball rolling soon, I'd say 2021 or 2022 when its complete. But this is speculation at this point. With Carroll's development, we'll see at least two new highrises downtown. The other being the Westin hotel.

Groundbreaking will be held today for the 9 story office building known as Project Slugger according to the Triad Business Journal.  It will be 9 stories too.  2 office tenants announced law firm of Tuggles Dungins and First National Bank.  Total sq footage 111,000 sq ft. 

https://www.bizjournals.com/triad/news/2019/05/30/groundbreaking-set-for-project-slugger.html

first new office tower in downtown Greensboro since mid 1990s. 

Great news. Finally under construction!

First National Bank will locate its regional headquarters in the building.

Now that AAA baseball cities won't be able to host the ACC Baseball tournaments, Greensboro may become more of a permanent home. Greensboro has hosted the tournament off and on but Durham has been more of a permanent home. No more. With all the development and hotels going around the ballpark and the fact that ACC is in Greensboro, expect that tournament to come to the Gate City. I must say an amazing transformation is taking place around First National Bank Field.

Grading is taking place for Project Slugger. This will be one of the most developed intersections (Bellemeade and Eugene Streets) downtown. Hyatt Place on the north east, Project Slugger on the northwest and Carroll's 20 story office tower on the southwest corner. Now we need some one to develop the southeast corner.

Wonder if the construction around the ballpark is the reason the city didn't submit a bid for the ACC Baseball Tournament next year which will be played in Charlotte.
