Charlotte’s newest apartment tower is nearing completion next to Romare Bearden Park, and the 33-story Ascent is listing some of the highest non-penthouse rents in uptown.
Developed by Greystar, the 314-unit apartment tower had been targeting a first quarter opening this year. Amenities in units include keyless Bluetooth locks, a washer and dyer in every unit, floor-to-ceiling windows, USB charging outlets, Nest smart thermostats, high-end kitchen finishes and appliances and walk-in closets.
The apartment tower also includes a rooftop pool, lounge and penthouse for residents, a gym with a yoga studio and on-demand training programs and a pet spa.
For all that luxury, though, residents will pay: Rents for some units at the new tower are above $3 per square foot, higher than many comparable apartments in uptown that have opened in the past five years.
