October 08, 2020

October 8th 2020, Charlotte, NC – Panorama Holdings is excited to announce that the final beam has been placed atop Ballantyne’s newest speculative mixed-use building, Panorama Tower. The tower, on schedule to deliver Q2 2021, includes approximately 100,000 square feet of Class A office above a 186-room AC Hotel by Marriott. The building will also feature a rooftop restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor seating—the highest elevated rooftop restaurant outside of Uptown Charlotte.

“Panorama Tower is a first for the Ballantyne area and brings new and exciting urban amenities to one of Charlotte’s top submarkets. Ballantyne already has great office, hotel and dining, so our goal is to offer something unique within each use,” Jane Wu, President of Panorama Holdings said. “It’s rare to see Class A office built over a hotel, and our restaurant will offer views like no other. We are working on bringing in a restaurant concept that will introduce culture through the “foodie” experience with foods that will not only inspire and nourish the bodies of our guests, but also their hearts and their minds. The breathtaking view and spectacular rooftop space will create unforgettable memories for special meetings and weddings.”

The six floors of office space feature unmatched panoramic views spanning from Ballantyne Country Club to Uptown Charlotte. The AC Hotel by Marriott will occupy seven floors of the building and will feature outstanding meeting space and fitness for guests. The entrance and lobbies for the hotel and offices will be separate and each will have dedicated elevators.

“Aside from the incredible views and top of building signage available, this location will redefine convenience for tenants. Structured parking, over 20 dining options, hotel, business services, and fitness all on-site, Panorama Tower is a great potential headquarter location,” said Charley Leavitt, Managing Director at JLL.

The tower offers 20,000-square-foot office floorplates, 13-foot ceilings with expansive windows that provide unobstructed views and natural light. Signage is also available with incredible visibility across Ballantyne.

Archer Western is the general contractor for the project, RBA is the architect, JLL Project and Development Services is the project manager, and JLL’s Charley Leavitt and Alex Mann are marketing the building on behalf of Panorama Holdings.
