Duke Energy Plaza

525 S. Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC

An Architectural Marvel in the Heart of Charlotte, NC

Radiating sophistication and modern design, this outstanding property is much more than a corporate headquarters for Duke Energy — it’s a testament to transformative urban architecture and a beacon of progress in the Queen City.

Occupying a signature spot in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, the Duke Energy Plaza, formerly known as the Metro Tower, teems with premium features. The beautifully constructed plaza offers a staggering square footage of over one million, providing ample space to accommodate approximately 4,400 employees of Duke Energy. This consolidation captures Duke's intention to streamline and reduce their overall real estate footprint in the Charlotte area, while not compromising on the company's capacity or capability.

Infused with premium finishes that define state-of-the-art commercial properties, the Plaza boasts 25,000 square feet of well-curated, accessible retail space. Tastefully positioned in the building's lower levels, these provisions foster a vibrant, dynamic atmosphere while providing convenience to both residents and employees.

Beneath the tower, a seven-level enclosed garage stands ready to accommodate over 1,100 vehicles, ensuring that employees and visitors alike enjoy unmatched accessibility and comfort in their daily commute.

With its towering presence, the Duke Energy Plaza is not just an office building—it is a centerpiece of Uptown Charlotte. Proudly, the Duke Energy Plaza is set to achieve a LEED-Gold Certification, a testimonial to our investment in green building strategies that prioritize the wellbeing of both our occupants and the environment.

The construction of Duke Energy Plaza follows a meticulously managed schedule, ensuring an on-time completion by the end of 2022, while the final interior touches will be drawn to a close in 2023.

In 2019 Childress Klein and Maryland-based CGA Capital acquired the site at 525 S. Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte from Duke Energy.
