Spot, a leading third-party logistics company, announced today a major expansion to its Charlotte presence with an additional 22,000 square feet buildout in its office on 128 Tryon Street, the First Citizens Bank Plaza building.
The expansion will further solidify Spot’s commitment to the city of Charlotte and the Uptown City Center Business District. The new office space will support the growing demand for Spot’s services, adding 144 spacious workstations and making room for more than 300 total team members. Additionally, Spot is adding a dedicated training facility to accommodate professionals’ onboarding and continued education. The company currently occupies the 22nd and 23rd floors. With this addition, the company will also occupy the 17th floor and leverage the space for further operations and sales functions.
Spot worked closely alongside the teams at CBRE, Playbook Project Management, Perkins & Will and Barringer Construction to bring the space to life. In addition to the sweeping views of the city’s architecture and surrounding landscape, Spot leveraged its long-standing relationship with Business Furniture to provide high-end workstations and ancillary furniture throughout the space to further enhance employee satisfaction.
“The teams we’ve worked with have been incredible and we can’t thank them enough. This expansion is a significant investment by the company and a clear sign of Spot’s commitment to the Charlotte community and our employees,” said Kreg Hunter, Director of Operations. “We have always believed that our employees are our greatest asset, and this space and its amenities are another way to show them how much we value them. Like all of our locations around the country, this space was designed to foster a collaborative environment with its spacious open floor plan and boutique styling where employees can share ideas and work together to achieve goals.”
“Spot is taking its Charlotte office to the next level with this expansion,” said Andrew Elsener, Co-founder of Spot. “We are excited to see the future of Spot in Charlotte and are confident this will help us continue attracting proven, passionate, and dedicated logistics experts. It also will create new jobs and opportunities for the Charlotte community.”
