NC Dance Theatre building uptown studio and office facility
Posted on 31 Mar 2009 by Justin Ruckman
Reading through Urban Planet today, I came across the above rendering, and information about the NC Dance Theatre’s new uptown building. Apparently all money for construction has been pledged. Some stats about the facility:
- $8.5 million
- 35,000 sq. ft.
- will be located at N. Tryon & W. 10th
- will hold 6 rehearsal studios, a costume shop, offices and meeting rooms
- studios overlook Tryon for pedestrian viewing
- expansion space left behind building for a future black box theater, to be used for experimental dance
- will take its place among N. Tryon’s “cultural mile” which includes Discovery Place, Levine Museum, The Light Factory, Spirit Square, and the McColl Center
An article on the Dance Theatre’s website notes that the recession is actually helping the project, due to falling prices for concrete and steel.
