I can’t say I’m a huge fan of the design of these buildings, but I like the project. There are a lot of large corporate relocations rumored around the country and Charlotte will be well poised to go after some when this project is done.



“Bissell broke ground early Thursday afternoon for two 10-story speculative office buildings totaling 550,000 square feet at the south Charlotte office park. The buildings will be at the northwest corner of North Community House Road and Ballantyne Commons Parkway and are expected to be finished by the end of 2012…It is the largest speculative office project in the nation, the development company says, citing CoStar Group Inc. data.”

Oh wow... this will make the temptation to bring "affordable housing" to Ballantyne so great that the uptown crowd won't be able to stand it!

I thought there was a surplus of space for lease in this city, but perhaps Ballantyne demographics makes it feasible to create more office space. It sure fits with what I understood was the concept for that area. It has been my observation that a lot of the existing space is used as medical office buildings.

And yes . . . absolutely - there must be affordable housing there! Not that anyone living in that afforable housing will be working at any of the new buildings, lol.

Oh sure they will be. After all, affordable housing residents are just all hard working maids and gardeners.

Reminds me of Mike Rowe before Congress last month.
Politicians talk about millions of "shovel ready" jobs for a society that doesn't encourage people to pick up a shovel.

Huge gamble here.... Hopefully he has a large tenant signed up and ready to go. Commercial/Office rental space is quite abundant these days .
