CBG Celebrates Milestones in the Charlotte Market
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—CBG Building Company celebrated today the topping out of Hazel SouthPark, a 203-unit luxury apartment community with a six-level garage in the SouthPark shopping district. CBG welcomed representatives from owner ZOM Living and architect Cline Design to commemorate the completion of vertical construction on the five-story community, which includes amenities such as a spa, fitness center, and rooftop pool.
To celebrate the topping out, CBG catered lunch, gifted commemorative t-shirts, and held a raffle for field staff. The project team reached this milestone on schedule despite an abnormally wet season with two hurricanes. Due to the heavy rain, roughly 10 acres of topsoil drained into the parking lot, causing blockages and requiring the team to replace approximately 58,000 tons of soil.
Establishing its 11th office in Charlotte to serve the Carolinas, CBG also completed construction of Bainbridge South End in April of this year. CBG's first project in Charlotte, Bainbridge South End is a seven-story, 200-unit apartment community with below-grade parking developed by The Bainbridge Companies. Tight site conditions at Bainbridge South End required close coordination with neighbors, county inspectors, and subcontractors.
"Commitment is judged by action," said George Vomvolakis, CBG's vice president in the Carolinas. "In opening this office, CBG has shown its commitment to this market, its clients, and the local team. We look forward to smart growth in the future."
Because Charlotte is one of the country's largest submarkets for multifamily development, CBG staffed a team who have vested relationships with the area's developers and subcontractors. The Charlotte office's goal is to start roughly two projects per year with a focus on mid- to high-density developments in urban areas. Since its opening, the Charlotte office has signed multiple bids and is on schedule to finish Hazel SouthPark in the beginning of next year.
