Located in Charlotte’s vibrant South End area, the new Lowe’s Global Technology Center is a 23-story office tower that provides nearly 358,000 SF of urban office space for approximately 2,000 technology professionals.

Developed as a joint partnership by Childress Klein and RAM Realty Advisors for Lowe’s, the Global Technology Center is the tallest planned office building in the South End and includes multi-level tenant spaces and multi-tenant collaborative workspaces.

Metromont’s Greenville, SC manufacturing facility produced nearly 50,000 SF of architectural precast cladding with both heavy and light sandblast finishes for the project. Cast-in thin brick was utilized to create an exterior façade that blends with the surrounding industrial-style architecture of South End. The office building includes a 900-space parking garage, floor-to-ceiling glass offices, and is adjacent to an eight-level, 160,000-SF precast parking deck also produced by Metromont’s Greenville plant. The use of precast concrete reduced the overall construction schedule and contributed to faster occupancy of the building.
