300 South Tryon
This 25-story, 21st-century workplace, built on the best remaining site on Tryon Street in the heart of downtown Charlotte, is the first tower to start construction in uptown since the end of the Great Recession. Babson Capital Management will be the anchor tenant for the building, which is expected to have earned a LEED Gold Certification when it opens in spring 2017. It will have four underground parking levels with 408 spaces.
One of the major difficulties on this 970,000-square-foot project with Balfour Beatty Construction is the self-climbing core that will start four to five levels above the structural steel. Our metal deck placements will follow six to eight levels below the core at all times.
