There is always plenty happening on the building development scene in Charlotte, with never-ending construction as new projects are constantly getting underway. Charlotte is currently seeing the biggest apartment boom in the city’s history, plus there are numerous new office towers being built across the city.
There is a lot on the horizon for the next few years, but let’s start with what can be expected relatively soon in 2016:
The Gibson should be ready for tenants on July 1 and is a 250-unit apartment building located at Central and Louise Avenues.
The Mint Museum apartment tower will boast 394 apartments in 43 stories on top of the Mint Museum on South Church Street. Construction is slated to be completed in November.
