TD Bank and Regus, which leases office space, are moving in the Fountain Park Place office building at the corner of Elizabeth Lane and Main Street.
TD Bank is not moving far. The bank is currently next door to the new office building. A mid-January opening is anticipated.
Bank officials want to make the new location as environmentally and energy efficient as possible. The bank is seeking a gold certification from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program of the U.S. Green Building Council.
Regus is an international company that has 2,000 business centers in 102 counties, including a location 11 locations in Charlotte. Regus is based in Luxembourg and listed on the London Stock Exchange
Regus leases office and meeting rooms to companies needing space for as short as a day to longer-term leases. The company is using the entire second floor of the Fountain Park Place building.
The types of companies that use Regus “are typical Knowledge Park workers, such as accounting firms and engineering firms,” said Matt Dosch, Comporium’s executive vice president. The location’s meeting rooms could be used by clients such as the city’s technology incubator at the Citizens Corner building or Winthrop University, he said.
Comporium invested more than $9 million in the Fountain Park Place building.
The law firm of Morton & Gettys’ office are the third floor of the building.
With the two new tenants, Fountain Park Place is 60 percent lease, Dosch said.
Fountain Park Place is first phase of a project called “Downtown East,” Comporium’s and the city’s vision to transform that area of downtown. The vision includes Fountain Park, a downtown hotel and a performing arts center.
