Atlanta, GA. (October 8, 2014) — Batson-Cook Construction has broken ground on The Gibson, a 250-unit apartment community in Charlotte, N.C. being developed by Atlanta-based Pollack Shores Real Estate Group.

The project is the first between the partners, who are also planning future multi-family developments in the Southeast. The $25 million complex is expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2015. The mid-rise, infill apartments will total 202,000 rentable square feet and be located at 1000 Central Avenue. The project was designed by Poole and Poole Architects.

“We are honored to be starting on this first project with the great team at Pollack Shores,” said Randy Hall, President and CEO, Batson-Cook Construction. “Charlotte is a market that is well known to us and we are honored to be building again in the Queen City.”

The West Point, Ga.-based general contractor built two of the iconic buildings that define Charlotte’s skyline; the Duke Energy Center and Hearst Tower. Batson-Cook Construction is currently building Marvin Road, a 300-unit garden-style apartment community in the Ballantyne area and SkyHouse Uptown, a 24-story luxury high-rise on the corner of 10th and Church streets. Both are in Charlotte.

The construction firm also has a good deal of experience with stick frame multi-family construction, including the recent completion of Two Addison Place, a 325-unit community just outside of Savannah, GA.

“We have worked incredibly hard to see our vision The Gibson come to fruition. It is exciting to be underway,” said Tyler Gaines, Development Manager, Pollack Shores Real Estate Group. “Our partnership with Batson-Cook Construction, which has a history of high level execution in this type of development and a strong history in Charlotte, will deliver a project that will be an asset to the city.”

Plaza Midwood and Elizabeth are diverse and eclectic areas located just east of Uptown. The community is home to a thriving business district, a historic neighborhood and some of Charlottes best restaurants and bars.
