Beacon Partners has acquired the Cedar Hill building at Cedar and Hill streets in Uptown.
The 65,000-square-foot building once served as a bakery for the A&P grocery store chain and prior to that as a produce warehouse for the grocer, according to a statement released by Beacon.
The building was a warehouse for hard-to-find auto parts and supplies during the 1980s and 1990s. The property was converted to an office building in 2000.
“We have been attracted to this building for a long time, so we’re excited to finally have it as part of our Midtown and South End portfolio. It is a perfect fit for us, providing our customers with a great location and fun working environment with large open spaces and great views of Uptown and Bank of America Stadium,” said Mike Harrell, a partner at Beacon, in the release.
Beacon’s plans call for updating the lobby, plus interior and exterior signage, with a goal of paying tribute to the history of the building. The building also has a large rooftop deck, free parking, is within walking or biking distance to Uptown and is near Morehead Street with immediate access to Interstate Highway 77 and Interstate Highway 277.
