Duke Energy Center and Levine Cultural Campus, Charlotte
We represented a national bank in its development of a high-rise office tower in the uptown business center of Charlotte. The 42 story office tower contains over one million rentable square feet and has a 2,600 vehicle underground parking garage. We also represented the bank in its development of an adjacent “Cultural Campus” with buildings which house the Mint Museum of Charlotte, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Harvey B. Gantt African-American Cultural Center and the Knight Performing Arts Theatre. These facilities were developed by the bank under a public-private development agreement with the City of Charlotte. Upon completion, the facilities were transferred to the City and the City reimbursed the bank for the construction costs. The City then leased each cultural facility to the respective local cultural organization. The total cost of the office tower, parking garage, cultural facilities and other related amenities exceeded $1 billion.
