John Portman & Associates (JPA) is pleased to announce the grand opening of 615 South College in Uptown Charlotte. A celebration was held on Thursday, May 18 where Charlotte business leaders and commercial real estate professionals joined representatives of John Portman & Associates to commemorate the occasion.

615 South College

615 South College is a 19-story, 371,000 square-foot Class-AA office building that was constructed atop an existing parking garage. Visible from Interstate-277, the building features two-story balconies with views of downtown and South End Charlotte as well as an outdoor green space that connects the building to Stonewall Station, downtown Charlotte’s first light rail stop. Surrounded by respected corporate neighbors including Duke Energy and several other large financial institutions, it is steps away from the city’s professional sports arenas, parks, the Charlotte Convention Center and the Portman-designed Westin Charlotte.

This powerful new building incorporates the technology, amenities and aesthetics in demand by next generation companies.” states John Portman & Associates design Principal Gordon Beckman, AIA.

The August 14 event was no ordinary groundbreaking and not just because 615 South College is no ordinary office tower. This new 370,000 sqft Class A office building for Atlanta-based Portman Holdings is set to cost $122 million. The 19-story tower is scheduled to be complete in February 2017.

Since this new Class AA office tower is to be constructed atop the existing parking structure adjacent to The Westin Charlotte hotel, a crew of dignitaries such as North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, as well as Portman representatives, wielded pickaxes to “Pop the Top” and begin construction.
