New office, retail complex planned along South Boulevard

When you think about the development boom in the South End these days, the first thing you typically think of are the apartment complexes sprouting like mushrooms along the South Boulevard corridor. But commercial real estate firm CBRE and development firm Pappas Properties are hoping to add a substantial new office park to the mix. CBRE has just begun marketing a new mixed-use development planned for South Boulevard, near the Scaleybark light rail stop, according to Anne Vulcano, a senior vice president at the firm.

Billed in marketing materials as "Charlotte's next great TOD (transit-oriented development)," it would bring more than 487,000 square feet of office space spread across three six-story buildings located at South Boulevard, near Scaleybark Road. It would also include an unspecified amount of retail. CBRE is marketing the office space, while Pappas is handling the retail. "This is a fantastic location for the new 'urban' office tenant," Vulcano told me in an email. "Hop the light rail to amenities and the CBD (central business district). Drive to SouthPark if that is your flavor. The best of both worlds."

Where is the Scaleybark Park and Ride lot existing now?

at the intersection of S. Blvd and Scaleybark.

Without looking it up, I'd say it is about 4 miles south of Uptown.

It is the only station that is in the middle of S. Blvd if you are familiar with the Blue Line at all.

I'm told the plan is to build a parking deck to accommodate the Park N Ride folks before any buildings go up on that site.

No denying it! I remember when the numbers showed ridership was 3x what they expected after the first year alone.
