21 Jun 2018

CBRE Global Investors has acquired 615 South College, a recently constructed, 375,865-sq.-ft. trophy office tower in Charlotte’s Uptown submarket, on behalf of a separate account client. Developed by Portman Holdings in 2017, 615 South College is currently 84 percent leased with an existing high-quality tenant roster.

The 18-story property is located at the center of Uptown’s Stonewall Corridor with the Charlotte Convention Center in its immediate vicinity and direct access to I-277 and the LYNX light rail line. The building is connected to the area’s largest hotel, The Westin, adding to the state-of-the-art property’s extensive amenity package. Other features include open functional floor plans, 10-foot finished ceiling heights, floor-to-ceiling glass windows with panoramic views, multiple two-story balconies and a parking garage with 1,456 spaces. Anne Vulcano and Joe Franco with CBRE will lease 615 South College, and CBRE will provide property and construction management services for the building. 

“We believe strongly in the Charlotte region, in particular the robust and growing Central Business District,” said Tom Kirby, Senior Director of Commercial Operations for CBRE Global Investors. “615 South College’s building design offers an urban office environment that caters to today’s modern users, and the property fits perfectly into our client’s investment strategy of owning high-quality, core assets in A+ locations in growth markets. Uptown’s attractiveness, coupled with Charlotte’s overall success story with two decades of unprecedented population growth, make this property a very exciting investment for our client.”
