Charlotte Fillmore Music Hall looking like a sure thing

We just got a news release that a construction company has been hired to build the new Fillmore Music Hall in the N.C. Music Factory, meaning it's looking like this may happen. (We've heard--and reported--a lot of buzz about new national clubs at the N.C. Music Factory, but not a whole lot has actually happened yet). Details from release:

 

The project is designed to look like The Fillmore, the historic music venue in San Francisco, and is expected to bring national acts to uptown Charlotte. The 20,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open in June and will have a capacity of up to 2,000 patrons, which will make it the largest night club of its kind in the region.
 
“This will be an exciting new venue when construction is complete,” said Roger Hendrick, president of Hendrick Construction. “We’re proud to be a part of what is sure to become a Charlotte landmark.”
 
The music hall will feature exposed aged-wood ceilings, wood floors, and state-of-the-art stage, sound and lighting systems. When complete, the roof will be raised to accommodate unique sound and lighting systems for various artists and performers.
 
The venue will also have red velvet draperies, chandeliers and custom lighting, artwork to accent the décor, and VIP areas with granite countertops.
