Beacon Partners to Break Ground on Mixed-Use Project in Charlotte
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Beacon Partners is set to break ground this month on The Square at South End, which will include a 10-story building that will feature 150,000 square feet of office space and 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The project will also include a multifamily building that will be connected by an outdoor plaza. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2020. Amenities at the office building will include outdoor decks on multiple floors, a 2,400-square-foot coffee bar for tenants and guests, two-story fitness center, outdoor wellness area and a 2,500-square-foot patio overlooking Uptown Charlotte. As part of the project, Beacon will partner with Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation to develop Wilmore Centennial Park, a 1.5-acre park located at the intersection of South Tryon and Kingston streets. Centro Cityworks will develop the multifamily portion of The Square at South End. The design teams for the office portion includes Axion as the architect, Edifice as the general contractor and LandDesign as the civil engineer. Kristy Venning and Erin Shaw of Beacon Partners will handle leasing. Sauceman’s, a local barbecue restaurant, plans to relocate to a new, larger space next to Sugar Creek Brewery.
