Developers Childress Klein and Crosland Southeast have begun construction on a six-story, 154,000-square-foot office building in the Waverly development, according to a press release from the companies.
The building will be called The Hub and will be part of the 90-acre project at f Providence and Ardrey Kell roads in south Charlotte. The Hub will be at the east end of Waverly Town Center and is the first of two planned office buildings in the project. General contractor Shelco LLC is scheduled to complete construction in May 2017, according to the release.
“We are thrilled to begin this phase of development at Waverly,” said Paul Devine, office partner at Childress Klein, in the release. “Waverly will fulfill the growing demand from businesses for a suburban location with an urban feel. We have carefully planned this project to ensure it provides the activity, walkability and vibrancy of Uptown while remaining close to employees’ homes.”
The Hub was designed by Georgia-based architecture firm RJT+R and will be LEED certified, according to the release. The building will have an architectural precast and brick façade with high-performance glass. Exposed ceilings, a four-level, 840-space parking garage, and flexible floor plans are also key selling points, according to the release.
At build-out, the Waverly development will include 250,000 square feet of retail, anchored by a Whole Foods Market; two six-story office buildings; two medical office buildings; 375 apartments; and 150 single-family homes and townhomes.
