Exclusive: 13-story apartment tower named “Hawk” coming to South End next door to the Design Center



A 13-story, 71 unit apartment tower named “Hawk” is coming to South End right next door to Superica, Barcelona Wine Bar, Hawkers and Jeni’s Ice Creams. Ram Realty Advisors, the development company behind the project, will soon break ground on the project with a grand opening set for summer of 2020.

The unique project will sit on top of 6,200 square feet of retail and will only have six units per floor, giving it a super exclusive feel.

The project has a modern look yet still manages to seamlessly blend into its surroundings.


The building is set to open in the summer of 2020.

“Ram’s vision is to bring a level of living to the epicenter of South End that doesn’t currently exist,” Ram Realty Advisor’s Director of Development Rachel Russell Krenz told the Agenda. “Hawk is a carefully planned community for distinguished residents who live private, aspiring lifestyles.”

RAM seems to be sparing NO expense when it comes to this project.

The lobby will have marble floors, brass mailboxes, top notch lighting, walls clad with indigo silk and walnut wood veneer.

The units will have beautiful, wide plank flooring reminiscent of European oak and expansive warehouse-style windows. Kitchens include state of the art French-door refrigerators, gas ranges, custom walnut cabinetry, brass and black hardware and quartz countertops. The bathrooms will have luxurious freestanding soaking tubs and even a separate toilet rooms.

Unit options will include studios, two bedroom and three bedroom layouts. Additionally, the project will have a pedestrian bridge so residents can utilize the adjacent parking deck.


The Design District is without question the most desirable location in South End (and arguably the city) right now.

With hotspots such as Barcelona Wine Bar, Jeni’s Ice Creams, Superica and Hawkers blowing up — the Hawk puts residents right right in the middle of the action with top notch finishes and construction quality.

“RAM’s investment in South End continues to add to the neighborhood, and this project will provide a new kind of residential option right in the heart of a retail-rich and walkable area,” said Megan Liddle Gude, Director of Historic South End for Charlotte Center City Partners.

Stay tuned to the Agenda as we will feature apartment layouts, and first look walk throughs of the project as it nears completion.
