550 S. Tryon

550 South Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC

Just steps away from work, shopping and diverse cultural offerings, 550 S. Tryon has transformed this area of Uptown into one of the most prestigious addresses.

Topping out at 48-stories, and nearly 1.3 million square feet, this LEED Platinum office tower developed by Childress Klein uses a whole building approach design that address both human and environmental health and satisfaction while providing a high-quality indoor environment. Through this initiative, the building was certified LEED® CS Platinum, and was the first core & shell commercial office space to require all tenants to pursue LEED® Commercial Interiors certification.

The experienced team of Wells Fargo and Childress Klein, combined with world-renowned architectural firm tvsdesign, considered every detail of this project.

Building features include:

  • The impressive yet unassuming lobby combines warm woods, marble and granite.
  • Three points of ingress and egress combined with the spacious parking deck make access convenient and easy.
  • State-of-the-art, destination dispatch elevators ensure minimal waiting.
  • Column-free, square floor plates maximize design flexibility and provide exceptional views.

As part of this project, Childress Klein also transformed nearly four acres of surface parking lots into two museums, a cultural center, a performing arts theater and a 300-seat auditorium, known as the Levine Center for the Arts.
