Uptown at 550 Stonewall
Another mixed-use development is under construction on one of the liveliest streets in uptown Charlotte. Uptown at 550 Stonewall will include 421 apartments and some retail, which will be split into two different building structures. There is a low-rise structure used for parking with a podium slab to support five levels of wood and high-rise structure with a twenty-story cast in place apartments.
Our work started in June 2017 on the low-rise podium building. The twenty-story tower was to start within two months of the low-rise. However, rock excavation delayed the critical path of the high-rise by three months.
The project team used a night shift and a schedule and sequence that allowed the tower floor to pour every other day to gain time on the tower structure. The tower will be pouring out the last week in June 2018. The schedule was also achieved despite one of the wettest Winters and Spring on record in Charlotte.
