 About THE CHARLOTTE CLUB! This is a premier “Lifestyle” hotel mixed-use development project. Included in this world class facility, that will be implementing the latest green technology as well as environmental friendly materials, is a mixture of multifamily units (153 apartment units and 20 residential fractional condo units) that features state-of-the-art amenities and décor. Also Hard Rock International’s 450 room Hard Rock Hotel – Charlotte and Hard Rock Café offering the most exciting and energetic lifestyle brand in the world.


As a group we believe that modern travelers are not the travelers their parents were. They are looking for “something extra” in a hotel and they reject cookie-cutter hotels. They see luxury more and more in the storytelling of having an experience rather than in luxury items. When traveling for business, they are incorporating leisure time to maintain a healthy balance between their work and personal lives. Modern travelers try to connect to the destination and they look for local experiences. This all adds in creating a “Live-Work-Play and Shopping” experience within the project. Parking for guests, owners, tenants and visitors will be incorporated in this 47 story tower/deck stacking design. The design concept will maximize the size site by using height, amenities, architectural expression that helps mitigate traffic congestion while yet enhancing the pedestrian experience.

These 153 apartments have studios,1, 2 and 3 bedroom floor plans that ranges from 890 square feet to 1,350 square feet. Contemporary kitchens, ceiling fans, decorative glass pendant lighting, select apartments feature oversized patio balcony with spectacular views and walk-in closets, and secured building access. THE CHARLOTTE CLUB apartments are to be some of the most sustainable in Charlotte designed to U.S. Green Building/LEED® Silver Standards, featuring energy-star appliances, energy-efficient lighting and mechanical system, storm windows and doors and high- efficiency plumbing fixtures, equipment and materials.

LIVE. WORK. PLAY

THE CHARLOTTE CLUB is master-planned development that seeks LEED®Neighborhood Development certification, which promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability. LEED®certified construction throughout THE CHARLOTTE CLUB supports a commitment to environmentally responsible development for a healthier way of life. Innovative green features include:


  • An innovative locally engineered and built system providing chilled water to throughout the building. This lowers construction and operating costs by eliminating rooftop air conditioning equipment.

 

  • Water Capture System that collects rainwater to filter and reuse the water for irrigation of the development’s drought-tolerant native landscaping.

 

  • Solar Panels that generates enough energy to cover electric costs of all the indoor lighting in the common areas. Solar panels installed atop of the tower. These will generate enough energy to cover the electric costs of lighting the building’s common areas.

The Queen City was founded in 1768 and named for Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III of England. Now the nation’s second leading financial center, Charlotte was originally built at the crossroads of two Native-American trading paths. The intersection of these two paths, now major streets, is known as the heart of Charlotte – “Trade & Tryon.” These 20 luxury condos take center stage and their interior designed are fully furnished and features state-of-the-art amenities and décor.

Sustainable Initiatives

  • Located in the developing cultural area of uptown Charlotte 450+ guests rooms and suites; over 45,000++ sq. ft. of ballroom, conference center/meeting and banquet space
  • Satisfying the desire to live in more of a professional/leisure environment for changing demographics favoring the live-work-play “lifestyle” concept.
  • Close to the connection to Charlotte’s light rail system
  • Estimates are intended to identify benefits to local economies from major capital investments. The direct and in-direct plus permanent 2,500 plus job estimate is based on the developer’s investment in the Charlotte Region, minus costs for these items: right-of-way, insurance and financing. The estimate includes temporary and full-time jobs during the design and construction period (FY2016-FY2019). As is typical with construction-related jobs, these jobs will dissipate as construction ends. These jobs are to last between 10 to 36 months. This estimate includes all jobs created by the project.

LIFESTYLE. SYNERGY.

THE CHARLOTTE CLUB

Our objective and strategy for The Charlotte Club project will be to create an environment of “Lifestyle”  a sense of belonging that caters to the our potential guests, tenants and owners so they see the product and services as a need in terms of benefit and cost. Our competition will be whole owned real estate condos, hotels, apartments and condo converting to apartments. Creation of the “Lifestyle” concept, especially the fractional component, attracts buyers need and cost verses whole ownership. This is the “Lifestyle” concept in a Private Residence Club (PRC).


Synergy and appeal is critical for The Charlotte Club project. It will increase office and retail prices, rent and occupancy rates as well as accelerating absorption rates. Retail tenants may be willing to pay higher rents because of the increased customer traffic generated by the compatible and complementary uses. Fractional owners and renters of each component along with hotel guests can be attracted by the convenient location uptown for their work, dining, shopping and entertainment venues on and near the site.
