Childress Klein, Partners to Break Ground on 154,000 SF Creative Office Building in South Charlotte
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Childress Klein, in partnership with Crosland Southeast and the B. Frank Matthews II Family, will break ground next month on The Nexus, a 154,000-square-foot, creative office building in south Charlotte. The six-story building will be the second creative office building at Waverly, the joint venture’s master-planned mixed-use development. The Remi Group, an equipment maintenance management provider, has preleased 31,000 square feet at The Nexus for its new corporate headquarters. Ben Speir of Cherry & Associates represented The Remi Group in the lease negotiations, while Travis Hart and Jenny Fowler represented Childress Klein internally. The Nexus will feature exposed ceilings, collaborative office space, a covered parking deck, bike storage, outdoor Wi-Fi-enabled meeting space and a connection to The Yard, Waverly’s master-planned park. In addition, the developers are seeking LEED certification. Wells Fargo will provide construction financing for the project. The design team includes general contractor Shelco and architect Rule Joy Trammell Rubio. The first creative office building at Waverly, The Hub, was delivered in August 2017. NN Inc., an industrial company, plans to relocate its global corporate headquarters to The Hub. Childress Klein has also signed leases with tenants including Esri, Horizon Investments, Axene and Tokai Carbon GE LLC. In addition to office space, the 90-acre Waverly project features 250,000 square feet of retail anchored by Whole Foods Market, two medical office buildings, a 375-unit apartment community and single-family homes and townhomes.
