Charlotte (April 28, 2016) – SkyHouse Uptown is opening an outdoor park six stories
above North Church Street Saturday.
Called SkyPark, it is the only amenity of its kind in the market. The park features a regu- lation size tennis court, an athletic field and two regulation bocce ball courts on just un- der one acre on top of the mixed-use project’s parking deck. There are also pergolas, several grilling and seating areas with fire pits, a putting green and a walking trail. For four legged friends there is a walk for large and small dogs as well as dog washing sta- tion.
“We are focused on delivering a true intown residential experience for the people choos- ing to make SkyHouse their home,” said Jim Borders, CEO, Novare Group. “Parks are critical to our ongoing health and wellness for everything from exercise to peace of mind. SkyPark gives our residents the opportunity to enjoy a park experience an eleva- tor ride away and also have something interesting to look at for homes on the park side of the buildings.”
The opening coincides with the grand opening of the Charlotte location of VetweRx, a growing chain of state of the art veterinary facilities. VetweRx has existing hospitals in Denver and Arlington, Virginia.
“We are thrilled to be opening our third unit in the heart of Uptown Charlotte,” said Justin Yurek, CEO of VetweRx. “We are particularly happy to be part of the SkyHouse com-
munity, as it is the premier pet friendly building in all of Uptown. Amenities like the dog park in SkyPark demonstrate the building’s commitment to pets and we are happy to be the newest veterinary resource not only for SkyHouse residents, but also for everyone in the Greater Charlotte area.”
The chief of staff of our Charlotte facility – Dr Jen Larson – has been practicing in the Charlotte area for many years.
SkyPark complements SkyHouse, which has a signature roof-top amenity deck on the 24th floor complete with a club room, fitness area, and outdoor plazas that include a swimming pool, fireplaces, covered outdoor lounges and 360-degree views of Charlotte. The newest SkyHouse tower is expected to open in early 2017.
SkyHouse Uptown features residential units ranging from studios to three bedrooms with high-end finishes, floor-to-ceiling glass and private balconies. The Energy Star project also includes 10,000-square feet of street-level retail space.
Located near Charlotte’s financial banking center, SkyHouse is nestled between Uptown and historic Fourth Ward. It is in close proximity to Bank of America Stadium, Discovery Place and the Mint Museum. It is a short walk to the center of Uptown Charlotte at Trade and Tryon. The SkyHouse team broke ground on a second tower on the site last year.
SkyHouse is led by Atlanta developer Novare Group and co-sponsored by Batson-Cook Development Company and Grubb Properties.
