The names don’t get much bigger in Charlotte – Bank of America, Lincoln Harris, The Wall Street Journal and The Charlotte Observer. The impact of their two real-estate announcements could be equally big and very positive for University City. Lincoln Harris and other investors recently bought Bank of America’s 24-acre office site near the LYNX light-rail line. The Observer has bought the Wall Street Journal facility in University Research Park and will move its print operation there from downtown.
The Bank of America property is at the southwest corner of North Tryon Street and Mallard Creek Church Road. Lincoln Harris helped Bank of America get the property rezoned in 2009 for a million square feet of offices in buildings up to 14 stories tall.
