    By: Jennifer Thomas, Charlotte Business Journal


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Construction on a creative office-and-retail project in South End will start this week. Charlotte-based Vision Ventures plans a four-story, 90,000-square-foot building as well as a smaller building at 2100 S. Tryon St. It will be called 2100 Trymont — a nod to its location at the corner of Tryon Street and Tremont Avenue.

    The developer has owned the 3-acre parcel for more than a decade.

    “We just felt like it was time to develop it,” says Paul Picarazzi, principal at Vision Ventures. “Tremont has really become the heart and soul of South End.”

    The main building will have 75,000 square feet of creative office space and feature exposed mechanics, beams and brick as well as lots of glass. There also will be 15,000 square feet of first-floor retail.
