One Beale Application Includes Meeting Space
By Bill Dries
The Carlisle Corporation’s planned development for its One Beale project at Riverside Drive and Beale Street includes an “assembly/performance hall and convention center” as well as a lounge or nightclub with more than 125 seats.
The details of the $150 million project are in the One Beale application to the local Office of Planning and Development filed April 27 by SR Consulting LLC.
Carlisle had previously stated its intent to have some kind of meeting space. But late Monday said the convention center category on the planned development application best fit its plans for the meeting space.
However, Carlisle representatives said the space will not amount to a convention center in its scale.
Carlisle Corp. is also seeking to raise the maximum building height to 450 feet for the twin tower complex with initial plans for 20,000 square feet of office space, another 40,000 square feet of retail and meeting space – including a 6,500 square foot restaurant, 280 apartments and a 300-room hotel.
The 3.21 acre site includes not only the land at Beale and Riverside long owned by Carlisle but also a parcel of land on the eastern side of Wagner Place south of Beale.
The application is due before the Land Use Control Board on June 11.
