    Charlotte-based Panorama Holdings last week broke ground on a 14-story, vertical mixed-use development that will include a 186-room AC Hotel by Marriott, nearly 100,000 square feet of office space and a rooftop restaurant and bar in one building at 14819 Ballantyne Village Way. The project, Panorama Tower, is expected to deliver in early 2021.

    Jane Wu, president of Panorama Holdings, said her firm has been interested in doing a project in the Ballantyne area for some time, believing there’s demand for new office space and hotel rooms.

    “It will be nice for the tenants to have something more trendy, more modern,” Wu said, adding the goal is to create space that coworking and similar types of tenants gravitate to — notably, Ballantyne is one of the few office submarkets in Charlotte that doesn’t have a major coworking group. Wu said the office space could accommodate one single tenant or multiple companies.
