Located at 901 West Trade St., between West Fourth and Trade streets in the heart of downtown Charlotte, Gateway Center is a 10-story office building with tenants such as Bank of America and Johnson & Wales University. The property was 90 percent leased at the time of the announcement. A 1.6-acre parcel, currently used as a 29-space surface lot, was also part of the sale. The transit-oriented property is within walking distance of the Greyhound and light rail stations and has easy access to Interstates 277, 77 and 85.

“We received tremendous interest in the Gateway Center offering, further demonstrating the appeal and national attention Charlotte and the Carolinas are receiving from institutional investors,” said Clutter in prepared remarks. “Well-located, urban assets that offer notable upside potential for investors are currently in high demand and we believe this pattern is poised to continue for the foreseeable future.”
