CHARLOTTE — Riverside Investment and Development, along with its partners, celebrated the groundbreaking of the Queensbridge Collective development on Wednesday.
The new mixed-use project will be located in the area that links the South End and Uptown neighborhoods; it is set to be finished by mid-2025. The development team and city officials attended the event.
The mixed-use project was designed by global architecture firm Goettsch Partners. Their designs include two highrise buildings: a 42-story apartment building with over 400 units and a 35-story office tower. The entire project will include about 30,000 square feet of retail space, over 90,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor activity space, and 1,600 parking spots.
Tony Scacco, CEO of Riverside Investment and Development, shared his excitement about beginning this project.
“Today culminates nearly three years of planning and is a major step toward our goal of delivering a new benchmark in residential and office space at the nexus of Charlotte’s most vibrant neighborhoods,” Scacco said. “Riverside is excited to start bringing this vision for Queensbridge Collective to life.”
Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles spoke during the event as well and pointed out the importance of improving the connection between Uptown and South End.
“The groundbreaking of Queensbridge Collective represents the ongoing transformation of Uptown meeting South End,” said Mayor Lyles. “We are fortunate to have teams like Riverside invest in Charlotte and contribute to the momentum of high-quality development occurring in our city.”
Woodfield Development, Riverside’s co-development partner for the residential part of the project, plans to bring unique, quality amenities to Queensbridge Collective, like a rooftop restaurant and 42nd-floor pool.
“This project allows Woodfield and Riverside to bring a custom, irreplaceable residential product to Charlotte’s most dynamic location,” said Chad Hagler, Woodfield’s Development Partner for Charlotte. “Each of our communities draws on the character of its unique location, and Queensbridge Collective will tell its own story and offer an incomparable resident experience.”
