Apartment project adding ‘micro-units’ in South End nears completion

A project in South End that has most­ly small­er-than-aver­age stu­dios — some­times called micro-units — has begun pre-leas­ing. Cen­tro Rai­l­yard, which wraps the park­ing deck for The Rai­l­Yard devel­op­ment on the Win­nifred Street side, includes 91 apart­ments, two-thirds of which are stu­dios mea­sur­ing about 400 square feet. The project is some­what unique for Char­lotte because of its below-aver­age unit sizes and few on-site ameni­ties, a hall­mark of most lux­u­ry mul­ti­fam­i­ly devel­op­ments that have been built, espe­cial­ly in South End.

David Furman calls on industry to continue building ‘a great city’ at Heavy Hitters awards event

Thurs­day night revealed a lot of win­ners — and a lot of ties — at the Char­lotte Busi­ness Jour­nal’s fifth annu­al event hon­or­ing com­mer­cial real estate projects com­plet­ed over the past year in the Char­lotte region.

Twen­ty-five region­al real estate devel­op­ments across eight cat­e­gories — rang­ing from cor­po­rate office build­ings to ameni­ty-rich mul­ti­fam­i­ly com­mu­ni­ties to non­prof­it and civic projects — sub­stan­tial­ly com­plet­ed between July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018, were hon­ored at The West­in Char­lotte in uptown.

Among the win­ners was 2018 Pil­lar Award recip­i­ent David Fur­man, whose archi­tec­ture and devel­op­ment has helped trans­form the urban land­scape of cen­ter city Char­lotte for more than three decades.

Fur­man has been a pio­neer and leader in cre­ative, cool and funky real estate projects — pri­mar­i­ly in the res­i­den­tial space but more recent­ly in com­mer­cial and mixed-use deals in South End and uptown — as well as a civic leader. He serves on the board of Char­lotte Cen­ter City Part­ners as a dri­ving force behind Rail Trail projects and doing pro-bono design work for local non­prof­its like the Cri­sis Assis­tance Min­istry, the Urban Min­istry Cen­ter and the Men’s Shel­ter of Char­lotte.
