Portman Holdings has acquired a development site at 2151 Hawkins Street in Charlotte’s SouthEnd neighborhood, located directly on the Charlotte Rail Trail and Light Rail, next to Sycamore Brewery and across from Atherton Mill Market.

The project plans to break ground in late 2019. Current plans for the property include up to 260,000 square feet of office and 20,000 square feet of retail.

“Portman Holdings is pleased to be able to continue creating significant developments in Charlotte, and this time on the exciting Blue Line corridor which is among the most walkable transit-oriented, mixed-use neighborhoods in Charlotte,” said Ambrish Baisiwala, CEO of Portman Holdings.
