Gantt Huberman Architects
Causing a slight stir in Charlotte's local architecture industry, Gantt Huberman Architects has been sold off to a New York company. The firm, founded originally by Harvey Gantt a former mayor of Charlotte, was made famous by its hand in numerous Charlotte landmarks. Though the exact terms of the sale were not disclosed, employees can rest assured that their jobs will not be lost in the transition.
Gantt Huberman Architects, the firm that built such Charlotte landmarks as Transamerica Square and ImaginOn, has been sold to a New York-based company.
The firm, founded by former Charlotte Mayor Harvey Gantt and business partner Jeff Huberman, has been acquired by Bergmann Associates, a 375-person architecture and engineering firm with a dozen offices across the Northeast, Midwest and Florida.
“We reached a lot of the goals we set for ourselves. We developed a nice practice here,” Gantt, 69, told the Observer on Tuesday. “But we’re also getting older. We had to start thinking about succession, especially because we have such a wonderful group of young architects and professionals on the staff.”
