(CHAPEL HILL, N.C.) February 8, 2021 – The Gwendolyn, a four-story 109,000-square-foot, Class A office building in the historic Glen Lennox community, has completed construction. The building will help address a critical shortage of commercial office space in Chapel Hill and features a host of amenities such as an 18-hour terrace café, an indoor cycle center and an onsite wellness studio with showers and locker rooms.
The Gwendolyn is named for Gwendolyn Harrison, the first African-American woman to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Gwendolyn is part of Grubb Properties’ overall redevelopment of the Glen Lennox community located at the intersection of Hwy 54 and U.S. 15\501. The interior spaces and furniture systems are designed for physical distancing, with 5,000 to 7,000-square-foot suites on the ground floor, and smaller move-in ready offices with a shared town hall amenity comprised of conference rooms and break areas on the second floor. Other class A amenities include touchless entry features and deck parking.
“This is a wonderful day for Glen Lennox and the Town of Chapel Hill,” said Joe Dye, Executive Vice President for Grubb Properties. “In planning The Gwendolyn, we committed to providing a beautifully designed, state-of-the-art space for innovative individuals and companies to grow in one of the most convenient locations in the Triangle. The building is an ideal addition to the Glen Lennox neighborhood and shows that Chapel Hill is open for business.”
Town Hall suites will be available for move-in by spring. Additional leasing opportunities for the Gwendolyn are available now. Inquiries should be directed to JLL at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-851-9111.
