Van Allen & 555 Mangum

ChapelHillSean
I work in an office at the American Tobacco campus and I took some pictures on March 27, 2019.  These are a bit out of date but we can compare them for some progress pictures later.

I drive up Roxboro every morning on my way to work, and have loved seeing these go up. I am not a fan of the attached parking garage, but oh well.

It will be great to see the Lennar Project go up next door, and I still have my fingers crossed the phase 2 of that will have a commercial tower, though Lennar said it is no longer in the plans, because the people who were going to build it bought the venable Center and are buildign a tower there. Regardless hopefully there is some height.

American Tobacco Part 2 will finish off the whole area! Heard some rumors there is going to be a couple of "towers" on that site, and should be announced soon.

This is awesome - thanks for posting these photos, Sean!

AT2 will be really interesting. When I have spoken to people at Capital Broadcasting, they have mentioned that it will definitely be more integrated into the rest of the urban landscape as a part of a walkable downtown that feels connected to the other developments (Broadstone, BB&T renovation, Willard St Apartments, etc).

A couple of towers with retail at ground level would certainly fit that description.

 this was taken February 12th from the east parking deck. To give contrast to the others. They are pretty fast!

Of course! Now got to figure out why this one went sideways on me...

strange these show up sideways..... I only have this problem with this forum for some reason.  I don't see a way to edit the photo in the forum.

Anyways the closer building is Van Allen and the building still under construction is 555.  The Van Allen building has 0 street level retail (I think this sucks... as there is a huge block with nothing on it).  The 555 building should have street level retail... at least the plans call for it.

I also am not sure about the new parking deck... it would be awesome if this is more modern parking deck with street retail.  The entire sidewalk is closed off so I can't easily go explore.
