Whitehall I and II are located at 2915 and 2745 Whitehall Park Drive off of Interstate 485 and South Tryon Street in the southwest Charlotte submarket. The properties are part of the Whitehall development, a 700-acre community comprised of a technology park, corporate office park, light industrial park, retail district and several residential districts. Tenants at the fully leased property include Xerox, Osram Sylvania, Burkert Contromatic Corporation and Treffert Coatings USA.
The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by senior managing directors Ryan Clutter and Christopher Norvell.
"Whitehall I and II offered a compelling opportunity to the marketplace as the assets are best-in-class properties catering to a diverse base of office, warehouse, technology, and call center type users. These assets are poised to continue to experience strong leasing demand and generate attractive investment returns," commented Clutter.
"The sale of Whitehall I and II is yet another data point signifying the strength and appeal of the Charlotte market to institutional investors. The market continues to attract more and more investor interest as the city grows creating a favorable environment for sellers," added Clutter.
