CHARLOTTE – Mecklenburg County on Monday issued three building permits to the Charlotte School of Law to start work on the renovations in the 243,000 square feet of space the school is taking in Charlotte Plaza, at 201 S. College St.
The permits were valued at a total of $1.49 million. One permit, valued at $504,000, was for work on the building’s roof; the other two were valued at $493,000 apiece for renovations on two of the 10 floors into which the school plans to move, according to county records.
Larry Provonost, director of facility development with Infilaw, the company that owns the Charlotte School of Law, said the renovations will have to be permitted floor-by-floor.
“It will look like a lot of different permits,” Provonost said, “but it’s for the one project.”
The Charlotte School of Law will move into the space starting in August, Provonost said, adding that all construction is expected to be finished by November. The school is moving students from two buildings, one on Suttle Avenue, west of uptown, and one in the Gateway Center in uptown.
Charlotte-based Balfour Beatty Construction is the general contractor on the project, according to the building permit.
