Luxury multifamily project by Miller-Valentine Group opening this week

The first luxury multifamily development by the Charlotte office of Miller-Valentine Group is opening this week.

Beckett Farms, at 1111 Gennett Circle near the intersection of Gold Hill Road and Interstate 77 in Fort Mill, will open with an event at 6 p.m. on Thursday. The 280-unit development broke ground last summer.

Charles Rulick, vice president of multifamily development at Miller-Valentine, said in a statement that, with Beckett Farms, the firm hoped to combine modern apartment living with a prime Fort Mill location, which is surrounded by a creek and wooded area.

Wood Partners starting construction at Brevard and 25th Streets in Charlotte

An Atlanta-based developer is kicking off construction on new apartments next to the Blue Line light rail extension, in the Optimist Park neighborhood near NoDa.

Wood Partners has closed on its acquisition of a 2.3-acre site, paying more than $5.3 million for land at 25th and Brevard streets. That’s next to the 25th Street light rail station, set to start passenger service by March 2018. The site is currently used as a truck yard.

The company is building a 261-unit apartment building, which has yet to be named. Wood Partners expects to complete the apartments by early 2019. Amenities will include a saltwater pool, lounge, game room and public kitchen area for residents.

Get ready for more construction on Stonewall Street: New apartments are starting in February

The busiest street for development in Charlotte is about to see another project kick off: Proffitt Dixon has closed on the purchase of its Stonewall Street site and plans to start construction in February.

The Montage, as the project is known, will be on the former site of the Actor’s Theatre and an adjacent parcel of vacant land next door that was owned by the city of Charlotte. Proffitt Dixon bought both sites, totaling about 2.6 acres, for $8.6 million this week. Designed by Axiom Architecture, the Montage is expected to total 230 units, with ground-floor retail.

Proffitt Dixon expects the first apartments will be available in late 2018. The Montage apartments are the second building the Charlotte-based company has developed on Stonewall Street. A few blocks away, at Stonewall and McDowell streets, Proffitt Dixon developed the Presley apartments.

The market’s response to our Presley project at Stonewall and McDowell has been remarkable,” said managing principal Stuart Proffitt. “That experience has made us eager to be a part of the district’s continuing evolution.”

The south side of Stonewall Street is set to completely transform in the next few years. From Bank of America Stadium east, in order:

▪ Lincoln Harris is building a major mixed-use development on the former site of the Observer, starting with a 30-story office building.

▪ Crescent Communities is planning a mixed-use development and office tower called Tryon Place.

▪ Crescent is building a Whole Foods-anchored development with 450 apartments and two hotels next to the Blue Line light rail, called Crescent Stonewall Station.

▪ Northwood Ravin last week kicked off a high-rise apartment development that will include 421 apartments.

▪ Then there’s Montage, this Proffitt Dixon project.

▪ BK Partners is planning to buy and redevelop the county-owned Bob Walton Plaza building as part of its Brooklyn Village plan.

For those keeping track, yes, almost every single tract of land on Stonewall Street between the stadium and the I-277 loop is being redeveloped. The one exception is the Westin hotel, which is staying put – but directly behind it and just off Stonewall Street, the 615 South College office tower is nearing completion.

Betting big on South End

Charlotte architect and developer David Furman brought an initial concept for what would eventually become Camden Gallery to Camden Property Trust in 2012. It was an opportunity the firm’s principals couldn’t pass up, especially considering its location on the LYNX Blue Line in booming South End.

We already had a great presence in the South End submarket and another site in pre-design, so it was a quadruple-down in the market,” said Will Smith, director of real estate investments at Camden.

A new generation of tenants at 1616 Center

When it delivered late last year, 1616 Center addressed two needs in South End — creative office space and ground-floor shops. Designed by David Furman, the 76,000-square-foot mixed-use project, developed by Charlotte-based Beacon Partners, was envisioned as a unique product that would visually reflect the neighborhood’s dynamic character and serve a need in the market. The building quickly leased up.

The five-story building sits at one of South End’s prime intersections, next to Price’s Chicken Coop at Camden Road and Kingston Avenue. Adding to its value is its proximity to the LYNX Blue Line, steps away from the building’s front door and an easily marketable amenity for retail and office tenants alike.

Charlotte construction firm upfits 1930s-era hangar for new office

Charlotte general contractor Edifice Inc. recently made a move from one adaptive-reuse office space to another in South End.

Edifice relocated this week from the former Coca-Cola bottling plant on West Morehead Street to the building at 4111 South Blvd., a structure built as two airplane hangars in the 1930s. The 20,000-square-foot building was dismantled and moved in 1955 to its current location in the Scaleybark part of South End, where it has since housed a crane-rental company, a tile shop and a boxing gym.
