With these proposed towers mentioned on this site, in addition to, the whole morehead st corridor about to explode into it’s own little skyline, the case for a cap/park over 277 has to be strengthened I would imagine. It would be expensive endeavor but it would be amazing. 

Given the site prep at Legacy Union right now, I imaging they have a tenant lined up for a tower too.

I suspect that, once opened, the medical school is going to create substantial residential demand in the neighborhood (including at LU).

The rumor mill says that the tenant has plenty of money to pay for this, they fit very nicely into the uptown ecosystem, and they have nothing to do with the medical school.

Does the rumor mill say whether they are already established here, or new to the area?

Any word on a tenant? You'd be pretty crazy to build a 40+ floor spec office tower in this environment. 

Only heard they have one do not believe it will be spec as no one will build that big.  In market and out of market tenants names floating around

I'm now convinced that you are intentionally trolling and/or have never been to Gateway. J&W moved into their "old" buildings way back in...2004.  Gateway Village is actually a pretty decent piece of urban development, including a public park space integrated within the main complex, parking largely hidden behind (not under) apartments and retail. It's a work in progress like much of the city but what has been developed in the past 20 years there is mostly pretty good.

As for the church, the forced razing and relocation of the Brooklyn neighborhood in the '60s and '70s remains the most egregious development offense in modern city history (narrowly edging the building of freeways through African American neighborhoods).  I'd chain myself to that church before I let someone knock it down.

Hah I’m really not. I live two/three blocks away up Trade St. There is nothing here. The market bears this out too. Can’t give away the condos here and the office space is -$12/15 less then anything in ‘’real’ uptown/SE/midtown/SP/park rd. Need a developer with deep pockets and who wants a vision legacy project and can do something special here on all these blocks. Anyway we can let these people have their thread back. Can agree to disagree on this.

So interestingly, Riverside announced they are going spec on their 30 story Denver tower: https://www.bizjournals.com/denver/news/2021/07/21/1900-lawrence-downtown-denver-office-building.html

They announced it in July.

That is interesting on it's face but also is a bit upsetting.  Charlotte never (recently) seems to get  Speculative Projects of that size to actually Start.  I wonder if we (CLT) are truly a more risky prospect than our 'Peer' Cities like Denver?

I mean, Legacy Union 2, Spectrum 2, and the Line have all gone up on Spec over the last 3 years.... all 300,000sqft+. Two of those projects currently have no tenants, with the Line being 3 or so months from completion.

Is this likely to be office space or residential?  Also, is this something that's going to happen within the year or more of a longer term likelihood?   Even when I first moved to Charlotte in 2008, I thought that this was a massive waste of prime space.

3 towers. 1 office, 2 residential.

That's fantastic!  Will they all rise at once or in stages?

Also, when is it likely to start?

Do you have any idea as to the height?

If I had to guess, probably will be built in stages. The office tower will probably be over 500 feet tall. No word as of yet when this might start.

informed speculation or wild?

It was a question... They are an employer who has started hiring in the area, with probably about 90 employees, who would be home in uptown near Tryon... Which are the hints dropped. But entirely speculative on my part. They are hiring pretty heavily, not just what they are posting on Job sites either. Active recruiting of mid and senior managers for Risk/Controls/Audit in the area. 

 

Edit: Wanted to add, Citibank looks like Wells did 5 years ago. They are facing a huge amount of regulatory pressure, have multiple consent orders, and need to build out independent risk management. Over the last 5 years, Wells hire 1000s of IRM employees to satisfy their consent orders, before them BOA in the early 2010s... expect Citi to do the same. It will be interesting to see if they do it here in Charlotte, but they are hiring here. 

Here is some background on what they are doing.

probably over 600 feet tall for the office tower it is really big and tall from what I have seen.  Citi could be a possibility but there are others far west too in a city by the bay.

I’ve read a company that would fit well amongst the companies in uptown” but not “the stagecoach”...so a major fintech???
