SKYE Condos tops off a 310 feet!

Charlotte, NC- Small Brothers Charlotte, LLC announces the last piece of steel has been installed at SKYE Condominiums, a 22-story luxury high rise located at South Caldwell and East Third Streets. The steel that supports the rooftop, penthouses and rooftop restaurant was installed at the building's tallest point, 310 feet from ground level, and the building has now been topped off.

This benchmark progress on Charlotte's newest and only mixed - use project of its kind takes the building's construction to its next phase. Work on the exterior is well underway with the second layer of vapor barrier and framing of the exterior currently in progress. Final finishes of the exterior will be installed as this work is completed. Accent bands, windows, metal panels and granite are scheduled for completion on the exterior throughout the summer months, along with the roof system.

Work on the interior is progressing as planned. Framing of interior walls and roughing of electrical and plumbing of the entire building is currently taking place. All four phases of the building project is being constructed simultaneously under one roof -67 luxury residential condominiums and two penthouse suites, a 172-room Hyatt Place Hotel, ground floor retail and a rooftop restaurant with panoramic views of Uptown Charlotte's skyline. The building project is seeking to achieve LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
