Lincoln Harris announced finalized plans for a new high-rise tower in Uptown Charlotte. The new 18-story tower, named 650 South Tryon, will become the second phase of Legacy Union, the development being built on the old Charlotte Observer facility.
With its sleek glass-and-steel design, 650 South Tryon will feature a modern glass-and-steel design, complementing the more traditional look of Legacy Union’s phase 1 33-story tower.
Deloitte will occupy the top four floors of the building, including about 90,000 of the building’s 362,000 total square feet.
“Lincoln Harris is proud to welcome Deloitte as anchor tenant for 650 South Tryon,” said Johno Harris, president of Lincoln Harris. “With the launch of the second phase of Legacy Union, we have made significant progress toward our vision for Legacy Union as a major destination that will redefine Uptown and serve as a gateway to Charlotte’s center city.”
Legacy Union, bordered by South Tryon, Stonewall, Mint and Hill streets, will offer a mix of Class-A office space, retail, residential and hospitality space as well as a large pedestrian plaza and green space. Active discussions with potential hotel, multifamily and retail partners are ongoing.
“This move reflects an exciting new chapter in our rich Charlotte history,” said Theresa Drew, managing partner for Deloitte’s Carolinas practice. “It will give our people best-in-class space and location, an environment that helps bring out our very best performance. It also communicates our commitment to Charlotte and being part of an urban hub that is exciting, sustainable and livable.”
Approximately 270,000 square feet of office space is still available at 650 South Tryon, which will be managed and leased by Lincoln Harris.
