CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Bissell Development has announced the construction of the Calhoun Building, a new speculative 140,000 square foot office building in Ballantyne Corporate Park and one of only a handful of projects of its kind in the southeast.
Named in honor of community leader Andy C. Calhoun, the Class A building will be located on North Community House Road and complete the four building campus-like set overlooking the 12th hole of The Golf Club at Ballantyne. Set for completion in April 2011 and built to LEED Gold specifications, Calhoun will feature six-stories and free structured parking. Calhoun will be Bissell Development’s sixth LEED building and will bring the total office development to more than 3.5 million square feet in just 14 years.
The building is named for Andy C. Calhoun, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Charlotte YMCA. Andy has been instrumental in carrying out the YMCA’s mission and vision in providing life-changing programs and enriching services.
The Calhoun Building was designed by LS3P Associates and is the 34th building designed in Ballantyne Corporate Park by the firm. The building will be built by Cox Schepp Construction.
