Architecture Firm will Relocate to 615 S. College Street

CHARLOTTE, NC, January 9, 2018 – Cushman & Wakefield’s Charlotte Tenant Representation team has represented Little, Charlotte’s largest architecture firm, in securing new office space in Uptown Charlotte.

Cushman & Wakefield Senior Director Keith Bell, CCIM, SIOR and Director John Christenbury represented Little in the approximately 60,000-square-foot leasing transaction at Portman Holding’s 615 S. College Street project, which was recently completed. The architecture firm is moving its Charlotte headquarters from 5815 Westpark Drive, which it occupied for the past 30 years.

Little has grown its office in Charlotte from 40 employees occupying a single, small office to now employing over 200 locally. Bell and Christenbury took that incredible growth into consideration when assisting the firm in finding a new place to call home. After looking at possible sites in Midtown, SouthEnd, Uptown, NoDa and North End, Little selected Portman Holding’s 615 S. College building for the convenience of being amidst Uptown Charlotte’s vibrancy and retail, entertainment, cultural and business amenities.

“The Cushman team was excited to assist Little in relocating its HQ to the Uptown/CBD Charlotte submarket,” Bell said. “We explored all the existing and new development opportunities after spending the time to fully understand Little’s culture as well as plans for their current and future office needs.”

Added Christenbury, “The move from suburban Charlotte to the CBD is an exciting change that Little views as a boost to their already fantastic culture.”
