Charlotte-based development firm Lincoln Harris said Monday that it has signed two more tenants to its Capitol Towers office project in SouthPark, and the company plans to break ground later this year on a second tower at the site.

Campbell Walker represented Lincoln Harris in both transactions. Albemarle Corp., a chemical company relocating its headquarters from Baton Rouge, La., signed a lease for 47,060 square feet. And the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board signed a lease for 8,599.

“The office space at Capitol Towers is unlike anything else currently being offered in SouthPark, and the number of tenants we have secured during the past several months is proof that demand for this kind of product exists,” Walker said. “We look forward to breaking ground on the second phase and believe it will be equally as successful.”

When complete, the towers will have a total 480,000 square feet of office space and 35,000 square feet of retail space.

In July, Lincoln Harris signed two leases for Sterling Capital Management and Dixon Hughes Goodman at Capitol Towers for 62,075 square feet of space.
