Trillium Health Resources brings headquarters Uptown
Local MCO signs 10-year lease for former Bank of America Building
GREENVILLE, NC – 1st Street Investments has finalized a 10-year lease with Trillium Health Resources to consolidate and relocate its headquarters in a facility occupying an entire city block in the Uptown Greenville district. Trillium’s relocation will move approximately 129 jobs to the Greenville central business district.
Tom Taft and Jim Ward, the team behind 1st Street Investment, will provide approximately $1.1 million to up fit the former Bank of America building into a 27,000 square foot, Class A office space.
“Tom and I are delighted to welcome Trillium and are excited about the future of the Uptown District. We look forward to a long relationship with Trillium,” said Jim Ward.
Trillium is the largest employer to relocate to the central business district in over a decade, a huge win for center city advocates and a move consistent with national commercial leasing trends. In addition to centralizing its operations, Trillium was attracted to the Uptown District because of its walkability and convenient access to a range of offerings, including restaurants, a greenway, parks and municipal and county services.
Leza Wainwright, CEO of Trillium noted, “We are pleased to be part of the fabric of the Greenville business community and look forward to joining the Uptown community. This relocation will consolidate our operations in a much more efficient and productive workspace and to be able to provide enhanced services and training in pursuit of our mission serving special populations in Eastern North Carolina.”
Trillium is a local governmental agency whose mission is transforming the lives of people in need by providing them with ready access to quality care. This past year, Trillium awarded the City of Greenville a $750,000 grant to an all-access park on the Town Common across from their new office.
Tommy Stoughton of Kittrell and Armstrong represented the owners in the transaction. Pete West of Custom Building Company will oversee the building renovations. Richard King of Dunn and Dalton provided architectural services. Occupancy is scheduled for Oct. 1.
