CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Dilweg Cos. has acquired Vanguard Center, a 14-building office park in Charlotte, in two separate transactions. The sales price was not disclosed, but the Charlotte Business Journal reports the Durham-based company acquired the assets from True North Management Group for $45.6 million. Dilweg plans to invest significant capital to improve the park, which was constructed between 1975 and 1997. Planned renovations include exterior improvements, updates to mechanical systems and common area and tenant amenity upgrades. Perkins + Will, an architectural firm, will assist with the renovations. Vanguard Center totals 563,504 square feet and was 65 percent leased at the time of sale to tenants including MapAnything, National Welders, MI Home and The Home Depot. Patrick Gildea and Matt Smith of CBRE arranged the transaction on behalf of the seller. Dilweg has retained CBRE’s Joe Franco, Ralph Oldham, Stephanie Spivey and Katherine Richey to handle the park’s leasing assignment. The purchase of Vanguard Center brings Dilweg’s Charlotte office portfolio to more than 1.7 million square feet and its Southeast office holdings to more than 6.4 million square feet.
