A site at Tenth and North Tryon streets is being marketed as a potential new office development, in a move that could add to growing interest in the northern end of uptown.

Marketing materials posed online show a development called 10 Tryon, adjacent to the pair of 24-story SkyHouse apartment towers, with a Publix supermarket along North Tryon. The 1.5-acre site, currently vacant and used for SkyHouse construction, sits along North Tryon, between Ninth and Tenth streets.

A North Tryon Publix would be the grocer’s first uptown location, as it expands aggressively throughout the Charlotte market. A Publix spokeswoman said the retailer doesn’t have a signed lease for the site.

“We are continually seeking out new sites to better serve our customers and introduce Publix’s quality and service to even more residents,” said Kimberly Reynolds. “We’d love to serve Uptown if the right opportunity becomes available.”

David Dorsch and Joe Franco of Cushman & Wakefield’s Charlotte office are marketing up to 75,000 square feet of office space for pre-lease in a nine-story, Class A office building. The asking rate is $34 per square-foot.

The SkyHouse towers have 336 units each, and are expected to bring about 1,000 new residents to the block. The first tower is complete and the second one is expected to open to its first residents in October or November.
