110 East, a new, 23-story office tower in Charlotte鈥檚 South End neighborhood promises to offer the city鈥檚 booming workforce a bold new destination, meticulously curated for the new era of corporate users.

Construction broke ground in January 2022 on the only Class-A office building in South End, featuring a platform at the East/West Station along Lynx Blue Line. Opening in late Q2 2024, the vision of a mixed-use, highly amenitized, hospitality-inspired workplace destination will finally come to life.

110 East instantly sets an approachably sophisticated tone with rich materials, modern textures and soft colors featured throughout the building, but the purpose-built design is what really distinguishes Queen City鈥檚 latest office tower. Built to meet the evolving needs of today鈥檚 tenants, 110 East caters to a new generation embracing an in-office culture that values adaptability and collaboration above all else.

鈥淔lexibility and adaptability are key drivers in designing an office for today鈥檚 workforce.

This helps ensure a future-ready environment with leading technology integration that will offer advanced connectivity throughout the building, including the light rail platform, sky lobby, conference rooms, outdoor spaces and even the fitness center … wherever users choose to work,鈥 said Zalkind.
