New ownership of South Tryon Square in uptown Charlotte has appointed the local office of Cushman & Wakefield to handle leasing.

Also called simply 201 South Tryon, the tower was purchased by a Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) affiliate in a $69.5 million deal that closed Aug. 11, as previously reported by the Charlotte Business Journal. The 15-story building contains about 238,000 square feet of office space and is about 88% leased.

Jessica Brown, Joe Franco and Kris Westmoreland at Cushman & Wakefield will represent the landlord, with service lines including leasing, property management, project management, sustainability and optimization. Adam Williams at Legacy Commercial Real Estate will handle retail leasing for the building.

The office building is slated for renovations to the first and second floors, an upfit to the building’s fifth-floor patio and sustainability-driven features throughout.

Brown said Tuesday that improvements will utilize current infrastructure and create an “updated, boutique” feel for the uptown building. A visioning session will be held in the coming weeks to discuss specific upgrades.

Built in 1960, South Tryon Square includes office tenants such as CIT Group and U.S. Bank and retailers Dean & DeLuca and Vapiano.
