Crescent Uptown architect posts more details on project

Uptown is set to soon see its first Whole Foods, along with 450 more upscale Crescent apartments. Now, the project's architect, The Preston Partnership, has posted some more details about the project's bells and whistles online.

The company's official project description is on its website. Here are the highlights:

▪ "The 3.6 acre site includes a 12-story, 116 unit apartment tower over 9 levels of parking, and a 5-story, 332 unit, type IIIA wood frame apartment building, over a shared 2 level parking and retail podium. Crescent Charlotte Uptown offers residents every convenience with over 15,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, anchored by Charlotte’s first vertically integrated Whole Foods Market at 47,000 square feet."

▪ "Amenities include a stunning saltwater swimming pool with a mixture of private cabanas, outdoor living spaces, fireplaces and outdoor media. The bottom floor of the high rise features a contemporary clubroom for entertaining and social events, a tech lounge with multiple computer stations, and an adjacent amenity building features a state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga room, and an outdoor kitchen with grilling stations. Perched atop the 12 story tower, residents have access to a spacious amenity terrace with panoramic views of uptown Charlotte."

The project is also supposed to include two hotels with 300 to 400 rooms total. Crescent Communities has said it's still negotiating with hotel groups and will announce the hotels later. The company is also buying the adjacent parcel, currently home to Club Caviar, as part of the project.
