New tower is the 3rd high-rise for Ballantyne in the last six months; amenities include wine fridges, sauna/steam rooms and a ‘dog run’

Developer Northwood Ravin announced Tuesday that it’s planning to build a 16-story luxury condo tower in Ballantyne that will be the tallest building in Charlotte outside of the center city.

The tower will be accompanied by a five-story building for a total of 212 luxury apartments. They’ll be located on Ballantyne Corporate Place next to the 11-story office tower by Northwood Office that is under development. These are across the street from the Aloft hotel.

It’s the third high-rise building announced in Ballantyne in the last six months. Besides it and the adjacent office tower, developers in July announced a 14-story hotel and office complex in Ballantyne Village.

Movin’ on up: Luxury apartments announced Tuesday will give Ballantyne residents high-rise living for the first time.

The 16-story tower will include:

  • a rooftop lounge on the 16th floor with full kitchen, private dining room, wine room and a “resident speakeasy.”

  • a large dog run

  • a 1,700-square-foot saltwater pool with private cabanas

  • a firepit

  • a health club with fitness room, cardio room, indoor spa, sauna and steam rooms

  • an onsite concierge

The apartments will be one- to three-bedroom units ranging from 650 s.f. to 3,800 s.f. Rents will be between $1,200 and more than $4,000 per month.

Long thought of as a suburban location, Ballantyne is evolving into a more urban area, with higher-density developments and, unfortunately, more traffic.
