CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers, acting on behalf of an institutional client, and Spectrum Properties plan to build a 17-story, 217-room lifestyle hotel at the corner of Third and Church streets in Uptown Charlotte. Kimpton Hotels, which was purchased by Intercontinental Hotels Group in 2015, will manage the hotel. Cornerstone and Spectrum expect to deliver the hotel by October 2017. The asset will feature a fitness center and 9,200 square feet of flexible meeting space, including a 4,000-square-foot ballroom and five conference rooms. The hotel will also include a signature 180-seat restaurant and a partially open-air, 7,500-square-foot, 160-seat rooftop lounge that overlooks Romare Bearden Park. The hotel will complement the previously announced 300 South Tryon, a 25-story, 600,000-square-foot office building at Third and Tryon streets.
