The Atlantic Coast Conference has signed a lease with Highwoods Properties at Bank of America Tower in Charlotte, NC for its corporate headquarters.

Atlantic Coast Conference to Relocate HQ to Charlotte’s Bank of America Tower

The Atlantic Coast Conference will be relocating its headquarters to the 12th floor of the Bank of America Tower at Legacy Union in Charlotte, NC. The ACC will settle into the 33-story, 841,164-square-foot building in Charlotte’s Uptown district over the 2022-23 academic year.

Bank of America Tower is located at 620 S. Tryon Street and was developed by Lincoln Harris and Goldman Sachs. It is owned by Raleigh, NC-based Highwoods Properties, which was under contract in 2019 to purchase the property for $436 million.

Newmark both lead the execution of the multi-phase assignment and represented the ACC in the 27,650-square-foot lease transaction.

“This decision results from months of comprehensive, data-driven assessments in collaboration with the ACC Board of Directors and executive committee,” said Bob Hess, vice chairman of Newmark global consulting service’s global consulting. “The relocation to Charlotte will add incredible value to the community, the conference’s 15 member institutions and its student-athletes.”
