The Gateway Village project transformed a 15-acre site in downtown Charlotte into an urban village of more than 1,000,000 sq. ft. of "Class A" office space; 2,700 parking spaces; over 500 residential units; and street level retail elements.
The first phase, Building 800, included the construction of 650,000 sq. ft. of office space in two towers. The two buildings are connected by a sky bridge and galleria at floors five and six. Phase I also included construction of a 2,700-space parking deck - the largest in the Carolinas.
The second phase of the project included construction of Building 900, an eight-story office building with approximately 480,000 rentable square feet of office space.
Both buildings sit atop a platform that conceals below-grade maintenance, central plant, and service access for the entire complex. State-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems were integrated into the structures to allow 24/7 usage with 25x redundancy.
