Share:

Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. ("HFF") announces the sale of 101 North
Tryon, a 546,878-square-foot, 20-story office tower located in the
Uptown submarket of Charlotte, North Carolina.

HFF marketed the portfolio on behalf of the seller, Barings LLC, to
Crescent Communities.

101 North Tryon is situated in the heart of Charlotte's central business
district, affectionately known as Uptown. This "Main and Main" location
is within walking distance to all of Charlotte's major public
transportation hubs, which offer bus, trolley and light rail service
throughout the city. This prominent Uptown location also provides an
abundant amenity base of more than 100 restaurants, retailers and
entertainment options, including Bank of America Stadium, which is home
to the NFL's Carolina Panthers, and Spectrum Center, which is home to
the Charlotte Hornets NBA team. Additionally, the Class A office tower
is within minutes of the Levine Center for the Arts, Discovery Place and
Epicentre. Recently renovated in 2018, 101 North Tryon offers tenants a
newly updated lobby and tenant common areas. Additionally, the property
has direct access to two hotels, The Charlotte Marriott City Center and
the boutique Ivey's Hotel. Tenants at the tower include Bank of America;
Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, P.A.; Spaces; Sunlight Financial and
Northeastern University.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller consisted of
senior managing director Ryan Clutter, managing director Scot Humphrey,
senior director Chris Lingerfelt and director Zack Drozda.

"We received significant interest in 101 North Tryon, underscoring a
notable trend gaining momentum in Charlotte and Uptown Charlotte in
particular," Clutter said. "The city is currently experiencing notable
job growth with numerous high-profile job announcements and corporate
relocations to the city within the past few quarters alone. Capital
follows job growth, and we anticipate we will continue to see more and
more investors targeting Charlotte throughout 2019."

"101 North Tryon's unmatched center-city location, unobstructed views
and untapped retail will provide new ownership with limitless
enhancement opportunities," Lingerfelt added. "This asset garnered
significant interest from both regional and institutional capital
sources."

"The sale of 101 North Tryon culminates the successful execution of our
value-add office repositioning strategy at the property," said Kevin
Miller, managing director at Barings. "Together with our partner, LRC
Properties, we were able to significantly increase occupancy and rental
rates over the four-year holding period through the renovations at the
office building while taking advantage of the strong market fundamentals
in Uptown Charlotte."
