Cameron Brown Building

RealINSIGHT Marketplace and Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. acting by and through Holliday GP Corp. a North Carolina licensed real estate broker (“HFF”) are pleased to exclusively offer for sale the Cameron Brown Building, a value-add, multi-tenant office building located in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Cameron Brown Building (the “Property”) is a 13-story office building developed in 1971 and renovated in 2012. The Property offers 184,144 square feet of rentable space and is easily accessible due to its proximity to all major thoroughfares and local transit systems. Approximately 79.2% occupied, the asset sits in Charlotte’s Central Business District and within walking distance of Charlotte’s most visible points of interest including Bank of America’s headquarters, Wells Fargo’s East Coast Headquarters, Spectrum Arena, and Bank of America Stadium. The Property offers prospective investors a generational opportunity to acquire significant critical mass, well below replacement cost, in burgeoning downtown Charlotte. Current market conditions further complement the rare opportunity that exists for a potential investor to lease up existing vacancy at attractive, rapidly rising rates. Downtown rental rates have grown more than 18% in the past twenty four (24) months and the current Downtown vacancy rate is at a six year low of 8.7%, creating a highly favorable leasing scenario.

The Cameron Brown Building is a prominent office building that greatly benefits from Charlotte’s dynamic, thriving, and expanding economy. Charlotte has become nationally recognized for fostering an economic environment that attracts a diverse range of industries - technology, healthcare, education, energy, transportation, and legal and professional services - which have bolstered strong fundamentals in this thriving market as direct vacancy fell to 8.7% in 2016. Vacancy in the Charlotte market is at its lowest point since 2007 after more than 7.2 MSF of positive net absorption in the past five years. These factors are suggestive of an office market with high stabilized occupancy and will provide investors with attractive investment returns. Located in Charlotte’s coveted CBD submarket, the asset is positioned to experience strong future rent growth as investment continues to flow into the region and the office market tightens.
