CHARLOTTE – Mecklenburg County has issued two more permits, valued at $745,000 apiece, for further renovation work at the Charlotte School of Law’s new campus in Charlotte Plaza, at 201 S. College St. in uptown.
The most recent permits were for work on Suites 600 and 700 in the 625,000-square-foot Charlotte Plaza. Overall, Charlotte Law will be taking 243,000 square feet in the building.
Work started in March on the renovation, which will include construction on 12 floors, 10 of which the school will fully occupy. Charlotte-based Balfour Beatty is the general contractor on the project.
The majority of the construction is expected to be finished by Aug. 1, in time for students to start fall semester classes, said Harry Workman, the school’s director of facilities management.
In moving to Charlotte Plaza, Charlotte Law is abandoning its two active campuses, one on Suttle Avenue, west of uptown, and one in Gateway Center, in uptown.
