CHARLOTTE, N.C. --  Construction continues to move along at uptown Charlotte's newest 22-story high rise building.

The last piece of steel has been installed at the luxury SKYE Condominiums.  The high rise located at south Caldwell and East Third Streets has been topped off, 310 feet from ground level.  A rooftop restaurant will complete the building.

Construction on the exterior of the building is well underway and the electrical and plumbing inside the building is taking place as well.

When completed the building will have 67 luxury condos, two penthouse suites, a 172-room Hyatt Place Hotel, ground floor retail space and the rooftop restaurant.

The building is expected to be finished in the second quarter of 2012, and condo sales begin this week.

NewsChannel 36 anchor Bobby Sisk received an exclusive tour atop the high rise on Monday and will have a full report Monday at 4 p.m.
