Carolina Theatre Expansion InterContinental Hotel
Raising Charlotte: Carolina Theatre combines with InterContinental Hotel high-rise
This 420-ft tall complex, mixed-used project consists of a 25-story, 200-key 4-star luxury Intercontinental hotel with a rooftop ballroom and restaurant over a seven-story lower structure, which includes three levels of office, three-story lobby expansion to the historic Carolina Theatre, and one basement level.
DCI Engineers worked in unison with the design teams and contractor to develop a fast track structural design to meet deadline requirements. DCI is the primary structural engineer for the hotel portion of this project and is preparing the design of the foundation; pile and pile cap; and composite framing plans, plus foundation details.
- Building structure will integrate full story transfer trusses to achieve the open spans required for the lower office levels and theatre’s lobby expansion.
- Hotel will include a rooftop ballroom and restaurant.
- Will feature a cantilevered 15th floor.
- Will be constructed around the constraints of two adjacent historic buildings.
