South Green Shopping and Dining
Located on the site abandoned by Triem Electric Motor Company due to repeated flooding issues, the site now home to South Green Shopping and Dining. The project currently includes 27,400 square feet of retail, dining, office space, etc. spread across three buildings, with space for a future fourth building of approximately 15,000 additional square feet. The project has progressed through multiple stages to address deficient load bearing capacities, flooding, water main replacement, extension of NCDOT storm drainage system, relocation of power, roundabout construction, and to finally being permitted to construct the buildings.
PCCI’s involvement in the South Green Shopping and Dining project began in December 2013 with conceptual budgets based on schematic plans. Stage 1, which included clearing, grading, and creating surge piles on the building pad sites began in August 2015. The first phase of Stage 2 which began in August 2017 was to extend the NCDOT’s storm water to the upstream subdivision to eliminate the repeated flooding of the site. Once the storm water was diverted, the second phase of Stage 2 began. Which included the construction of a roundabout in South Greensboro Street. Since construction required a road closure, it was closely coordinated with the NCDOT, Town of Carrboro, UNC, CHCCS, Chapel Hill Transit.
Construction of two buildings began in June 2018 and was turned over for tenant fit-up in April 2019. The third building was delayed due to change in use and is currently under construction, with completion slated for 1st quarter 2020. Although the scope has changed, we are still working within the same budgets and contingencies established in 2013.
The South Green Shopping and Dining project is an example of PCCI’s ability to coordinate and work with entities including the Owner, Designers, Governments, Public and Private Utilities, etc. to keep a project on track and within budget.
