Ted Williams, Charlotte Agenda, January 25, 2017

museum-tower-childress-klein2I’d love to have been in the Childress Klein development conference when somebody said, “You know what? We should add 394 apartments on top of the Mint Museum…”

Say hello to luxury high-rise apartments at the Museum Tower.

Spring 2017, residents will begin moving into this 42-floor tower.

Lawyers, consultants and energy executives working on the upper floor of the Duke Energy Center will look out their office window in jealously at the heated infinity pool – complete with cabanas, grills, oversized fireplace, lounge seating and bar.

View from what will be a rooftop lounge with fireplace.

The apartment complex has all the high-end amenities that you could dream of – including a massive lounge with high ceilings and a stunning view of the Panthers stadium.

Museum Tower lounge with game room, massive fireplaces, free WiFi and more.

Floor plans and pricing

All 394 apartments are either 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom units. The building is currently 5% pre-leased and 5 of the 10 penthouses have been leased.

There are 13 different apartment floor plans for the one and two bedroom apartments inside the Museum Tower.

One bedroom apartments range from $1,805/month to $3,130/month.

Two bedroom apartments $3,070/month – $6,750/month.

Here’s a look at a few of the plans and their respective price ranges.


Smallest 1 bedroom apartment option. 856 total square feet. Rental price range: $1,805/mo – $2,140/mo.


Largest 1 bedroom apartment option. 1,006 total square feet. Rental price range: $2,285/mo – $3,130/mo.


Smallest 2 bedroom apartment option. 1,409 total square feet. Rental price range: $3,070/mo – $3,950/mo.


2 bedroom penthouse. 2,111 total square feet. Rental price range: $6,680/mo – $6,750/mo.



The Museum Tower’s amenities, views and finishes are outstanding, but as more towers hit the market (Skyhouse, Ascent, etc) along with existing staples like the Vue – will supply outpace demand? Not yet.
