605 Lexington Development Update

Construction of Selwyn Property Group’s 605 Lexington Avenue office building is progressing nicely. All the structural steel is in place, and the metal framing for the building exterior is well underway. Landmark Builders has performed well in the face of a very wet winter. At this point they still plan to complete the shell building in late March/early April. The tenant upfits for Merriman Schmitt/Orsborn Engineering and Selwyn Property Group should commence in early March, providing for occupancy in late April/early May.

As construction has progressed, leasing activity has also picked up for the two vacant spaces in the building- 2,500 SF on the first floor and 6,600 SF on the second floor.

The renderings below show how some of the interior space in the building will look. Stay tuned for more updates as this development nears completion!

East Charlotte Redevelopment Project Underway

Selwyn Property Group and SunCap Property Group have started construction on their new 60,000 square-foot retail redevelopment. This 13.6 acre site is situated at the new interchange off of Independence Blvd., and is bounded by Monroe and Idlewild Roads, and Long Avenue. The project has been named MoRA Point, paying homage to the nearby branded neighborhood along Monroe Road.

MoRA Point will be anchored by a 22,000 square-foot Aldi grocery store. Other retail tenants will include a coffee shop, gas station, and other service related commercial uses. The property was rezoned in 2017, and Selwyn and SunCap closed on the site earlier this year. Jensie Teague, with Selwyn, said in a statement that the redevelopment will bring neighborhood retail back to a “fast-changing and underserved area” with a dense population. We will keep you updated as this project progresses!
