The newest office product hitting the market in uptown has a fresh website with more details about its upcoming renovation: 300 South Brevard.

“A building designed for Charlotte’s creative class.” That’s how new owner Stream Realty Partners is pitching the building, which formerly housed AT&T workers and was known as the AT&T Plaza (the phone company is relocating to offices off of West Tyvola Road). An upcoming renovation will add more tenant amenities and retail space, and will refresh the building’s lobbies, bathrooms and exterior.

“Stream Realty Partners’ planned renovation will transform the building’s exterior, lobbies, entrances, and on-site amenities. By mid-2016, 300 South Brevard will be a modern office building perfectly suited for today’s creative worker,” Stream wrote.

Dallas-based Stream bought the building for $45.5 million from its previous owner, a partnership of Childress Klein and Norfolk Southern. The 360,000-square-foot building will be the largest block of contiguous office space on the market uptown, a potential draw for a corporate headquarters tenant or other big users.

The 15-story building was originally constructed in 1994. Architectural firm Ai Design Group is working on the project with Stream.

So, what do you think of the planned renovations? And what would you like to see in the building, amenity- and retail-wise?
