CBRE to Lead Overhaul of EpiCentre Mixed-Use Development in Uptown Charlotte

by John Nelson

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — CBRE has announced plans to lead the marketing, property management and renovations at the 302,324-square-foot EpiCentre mixed-use development in Uptown Charlotte, which opened in 2008 before CBRE took it out of receivership in 2021. CBRE plans to begin a renovation project at the development, which has been renamed Queen City Quarter after Charlotte’s nickname “The Queen City.” Streetsense, a global urban design and placemaking agency, has been engaged to shape the physical and branding elements of the property. Significant repairs to the courtyard, parking garage, patios and roof are underway and expected to be complete by year-end.

In 2023, Queen City Quarter’s public staircases and escalators will also be renovated, and new landscaping, lighting, benches and security cameras will be installed. CBRE’s Kivett Williams is the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for the retail space at Queen City Quarter, and CBRE’s Kris Westmoreland is the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for the office space and will be involved in the rebranding. The development can accommodate traditional retail, restaurants and office tenants in addition to creative office, medical office and various other office and retail uses. CBRE Property Management is leading the property management services at the property.

Queen City Quarter is situated on College Street (between Trade and Fourth streets) and features a Lynx light-rail station on the second level. The property is within walking distance to Spectrum Center (home of the Charlotte Hornets), Bank of America Stadium (home of the Carolina Panthers) and the Charlotte Convention Center.
