Located in the heart of Charlotte’s developing South End neighborhood, this 17-level building includes 298,600 ft² (27,740 m²) of office space atop its 8-level, 304,500 ft² (28,290 m²) parking garage with a total of 710 spaces.

An existing next-door brewery will be moved into a portion of the ground level’s 24,400 ft² (2,265 m²) of retail space.

Customer Benefits

Optimized Construction Process Led To Shoring System Decision

The cycling sequence of the hybrid E-Z DECK® beam towers and CUNNINGHAM® deck panels placed EFCO’s shoring solution at the top of the list for formwork suppliers, making EFCO an easy choice.

Varying Floor Heights

EFCO’s E-Z DECK system was an efficient solution for the varying floor heights, given its ability to be assembled and disassembled quickly because of the minimal components it uses.

Slab Cantilevered

100′ (30.5 m) tall E-Z DECK shoring towers on both sides of phase one to handle the 12′ (3.6 m) slab cantilevers.

Wet Deck To Span Tower To Tower

EFCO’s SUPER STUDS® with moment connections were used to span several areas with a maximum span of 23′ (7.0 m) from tower to tower.
