CHARLOTTE, N.C.—General contractor Brasfield & Gorrie, founded in 1964 and based in Birmingham, Ala., has begun constructing a pair of state-of-the-art Atrium Health medical office buildings and a nine-level parking deck set amid the Pappas Properties Midtown development, which is located at Kenilworth Avenue and Harding Place in Charlotte.
Pappas Properties, founded in 1999 and based in the “Queen City,” develops and manages residential and mixed-used projects, according to their website. The firm has developed many similar properties in the greater Charlotte area, including in the neighborhoods of Birkdale, Sharon Square and Midtown. The firm also provides asset management and consulting services to various client firms.
“The Pappas Properties team is excited to work with Brasfield & Gorrie in delivering these state-of-the-art facilities as an outstanding foundation to our mixed-use campus,” CEO and president of Pappas Properties Peter A. Pappas said in a statement. “This campus will be further developed in phases and include additional medical, residential, hotel, and restaurant uses that will further amenitize the site.”
Brasfield & Gorrie, one of the country’s biggest privately held general contractors, has over 3,000 employees spread across 12 offices countrywide.
“We commend Pappas Properties for their long-term vision for this noteworthy development,” Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Michael Byrd said in a statement. “Their incorporation and revitalization of Pearl Street Park will create a live/work/play environment in a new part of our city.
“We are also honored to build on our long history with Atrium Health as they demonstrate their continued commitment to Charlotte through these new facilities.”
The twin medical offices will be connected by a four-level pedestrian bridge.
The project is slated for completion in the third quarter of 2020.
