Batson-Cook Development Company, BCDC, and Novare Group officially topped out the 23-story SkyHouse Raleigh apartment building on Friday, putting in place the structure for the project’s top floor. The building is expected to open by the end of the year. Pre-leasing of SkyHouse’s 320 units begins this month. The project is one of 11 SkyHouse-branded luxury apartment towers that have either opened or are under construction in the Southeast.
Developers broke ground Monday for SkyHouse Uptown, a $70 million, 24-story tower on a parcel bordered by 10th, Church and North Tryon streets. Novare Group, Batson-Cook Development Co. and Grubb Properties are developing the 336-unit project, with Batson-Cook Construction building it.
Atlanta-based Novare Group, Grubb Properties and Batson-Cook Development Co. will begin construction soon on SkyHouse Uptown, a 24-story, 336-unit apartment tower at the corner of North Church and West 10th streets in Charlotte. The group announced its plans for the project last year, and this week, a company managed by Novare president Jim Borders purchased a 1.3-acre site at the southeast corner of that intersection for $5.5 million.
The developers of SkyHouse Channelside, the Channel District’s newest apartment tower, will break ground Tuesday morning on its 320-unit project. Mayor Bob Buckhorn will be on hand for the groundbreaking at 10:30 a.m. The 23-story tower is going up at 12th Street between Washington and Whiting streets. The developers, Novare Group and Batson-Cook Development Co., announced last month they had arranged financing for the project.
