ATCO Forms JV with Shorenstein on Charlotte Adaptive Reuse
ATCO Properties & Management formed a joint venture with Shorenstein Properties LLC to undertake the adaptive reuse of five buildings at the Camp North End, a one million square-foot campus in Charlotte, NC. San Francisco-based Shorenstein will serve as a strategic capital partner on the redevelopment and leasing of the buildings at the 75-acre site.
Plans have been filed for the first phase of a redevelopment to transform the current structures into a destination for state-of-the-art office space, dining and hospitality, entertainment, arts/culture and recreation. That includes the Gama Goat Building at 1701 North Graham St., and a portion of another building facing The Mount.
Passageways will cut through the Gama Goat Building to connect with cross-streets in the Lockwood neighborhood and the broader North End corridor. The central pedestrian “spine” will be lined with small spaces for ground floor retail, food and beverage and four-season outdoor patios.
