The Story

Uptown Embassy Suites is a global brand of upscale, all suite hotels from Hilton.  The proposed urban luxury retreat is located in Uptown Charlotte, with breathtaking views of the city, just steps away from the NASCAR Hall of Fame and Charlotte Convention center.

The proposed development is in a UMUD zoning district, bounded by E. Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Caldwell Street, Festival Brevard Street, and consists of 250 suites, 12,000 square feet of event space, and floor area for retail, with underground parking deck, and bicycle parking.

Other technical design keys include a challenging underground detention vault facility under the sidewalk, and sewer and water services connections requiring resolution of conflicts with existing underground utilities (including a 6′ tall communication duct bank).
