CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- NBC Charlotte got an exclusive look inside an upscale condo and restaurant project that was once a major eyesore in uptown.

“It's an opportunity for me to parlay good food In a culture of a great environment, crafty cocktails, competitive wine list, as well as food, I hope to deliver 20 floors above the city," Whalen said.
The Skye condos are about half sold right now. The first of them will be finished the end of next month. The two penthouse units are still available – if you have $2.3 million to spend.
