In Press Release

Portman Holdings announced today the latest lease in the newly opened 615 South College office tower in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Financial start-up Sitehands is establishing its headquarters in a 13,524 square-foot space on the 7th floor of 615 South College.

615 South College is an 18-story, 371,000 square-foot Class-A office building that was constructed atop an existing parking garage. Visible from Interstate-277, the building features two story balconies with views of both downtown and South End Charlotte and an outdoor green space that connects the building to Stonewall Station, downtown’s first light rail stop.

“We’re pleased to welcome Sitehands, and the momentum their lease represents, at 615 South College and in Charlotte’s Uptown,” said Travis Garland, Director of Leasing for Portman Holdings. “The collection of tenants at 615 South College are evident of the importance of the Stonewall Corridor in this city’s changing real estate market.”

“Sitehands’ corporate headquarters relocation to 615 College is another great win for Charlotte,” said Michael Smith, President and CEO of the Charlotte Center City Partners. “In this center city location, they will find unmatched access to the talent of our region and the preferred location to become immediately connected to the business leadership of Charlotte. The addition of 240 jobs in the IT Field Services and FinTech sectors is part of the growing diversification of industries here, and reflects the market’s continued confidence in the economic strength of Charlotte’s Center City.”

“Charlotte’s IT/fintech sector is booming. More and more companies are choosing are choosing to move here not just because of quality of life and the business climate, but also for the diverse and increasingly younger workforce,” added Bob Morgan, Charlotte Chamber President and CEO.

Other tenants in the building include Regions Bank, co-working giant WeWork, Eric Mower and Associates, and global accounting firm BDO. Surrounded by respected corporate neighbors including Duke Energy and several other large financial institutions, 615 South College is steps away from the city’s professional sports arenas, parks, and the Charlotte Convention Center, as well as the Portman-developed and owned Westin Charlotte.
