Belk Place: Carolina Theater and Hotel Intercontinental

One floor basement, 4 floors of lobby, 3 floors office, 25 floors hotel, 1 floor ballroom, 1 floor rooftop restaurant.

 

200 rooms on 25 floors. I’m not sure if any are “penthouse suites” but that makes it 8 rooms per floor.

 

This building is going to be very tall and skinny. I don’t think people grasp what 420 feet will look like on this lot that is smaller than most Dilworth backyards.

This building will be a fascinating addition to the skyline because of this.

I was driving by last night and it seemed like there was more equipment on site then I've seen before.  Can anyone get a daytime picture for us?

Question, and I don't mean this to sound pessimistic: if for any reason the slow construction and/or market variables wind up raising the cost of this project significantly before it's finished, is there any reason to worry over where the funding will come from? As this was bankrolled by a lot of donation-type sources, have they continued to accept donations after launching construction just in case of a thing like this, or was it only started when there was enough in reserve to account for cost hikes, or is there some other way they might avoid troubles with money if the scenario I named should occur?

 

I feel woefully undereducated, hah.

Pretty sure the money raised was to restore the theater the hotel is being done by a separate developer with their own financing.  Here is the story in their own words

Interesting thing I did not know this developer is from Melbourne Australia and the hotel operator Valor is from Atlanta.  

https://www.sbggroup.com.au/portfolio/     the rendering and information on their webpage is out of date. 

I dont remember this being in the press this is a EB5 deal for foreign investors.

I actually think the rendering is up to date...as in this is the current design

It matches with approved Elevations.

^So the nice-looking glass from before is no more? The one that was in the rendering of the bottom of the hotel.

If so, oh well the height for that site more than makes up for it, sorta lol.

Love the design but I wish it were a different color.  Am I the only one that thinks we have too much blue glass in the skyline?

I think its going to be a darker blue than this. I emailed the rendering to the developer in Australia to see if they have any comments.

I think this is part of the updated, meanwhile, they could have actually used a photo of Charlotte to create it lol. Also looks like its listed at 420'

Looking back, is this the same type of glass as in the rendering above? Or am I looking too much into how glass is rendered.

I think the other rendering is not at twilight, and not as fleshed out. I emailed the developer, told them I was going to run this photo next week and maybe that’ll get a response. I actually like what I see, I always thought the cascading glass would be the first thing to get VEd out

Now I am confused I thought the glass had a pattern or something in it.  Those renderings on the 2 different websites I noted look different.  

so was this the old rendering or what?   I thought this was the design.
