American Security Mortgage has signed on as the first tenant for 150 Providence, Clancy & Theys’ high-end boutique office project in Charlotte. As the demand for office space in the city continues to rise, the mortgage lender was eager to secure space in this new, state-of-the-art development.
The 41,574 square-foot office complex in Myers Park will be developed on the former site of the Novant Health Bradford Clinic, which recently moved to a new location. Acquired by Bucci Development in March 2016, the 1.4-acre site sits at the corner of Providence Road and Colonial Avenue, just outside of Charlotte’s Midtown.
The building’s lobby will feature high-end finishes such as a granite wall feature, large format tile and LED lighting. American Security Mortgage will lease 15,218 square feet – the entire third floor – of the office building. The company is excited to offer “…a workplace to empower and enable [their] best-in-class team to not only provide industry-best excellence but also exceed the expectations of [their] customers.”
Clancy & Theys is working alongside BB+M Architecture on the 150 Providence project, which is slated for completion in late 2019. Featuring unbeatable views and walkability to some of Charlotte’s best neighborhoods, 150 Providence will be in the heart of growth, culture and access.
Clancy & Theys is excited to be a part of this unique project and, as always, to provide unique workplaces that allow local companies to thrive and grow.

After a thorough public input campaign, design details have been finalized for North Waterfront Park, Clancy & Theys’ latest Wilmington project. The park will span 6.6 acres along Wilmington’s historic Riverwalk, offering a greenspace for recreation and events.

According to Parks and Recreation Director of Community Services Amy Beatty, this project will ensure a safe, clean place for citizens and visitors to enjoy Wilmington’s scenic riverfront. The vibrant space will invite more recreation opportunities to the city, drawing more Wilmington residents and tourists downtown.
In addition to greenspace and lawns, the park will feature numerous amenities, including:
- Concert venue and festival space operated by Live Nation
- Playground and splash pad
- Large public plaza
- Trails and gardens
- Public art
Clancy & Theys will continue to work closely with the City of Wilmington and architecture firm Hargreave-Jones on the park, which is slated to open to the public in 2020.
As the city continues to grow, North Waterfront Park will have a critical impact on Wilmington’s urban environment and economy. Clancy & Theys is honored to be a part of this development that will foster a stronger community for years to come.

On Monday, April 30, Raleigh city officials and residents gathered to celebrate the grand opening of Union Station, a new regional transportation hub built by Clancy & Theys and Skanska in association with Holt Brothers. The multi‐modal station in the heart of downtown Raleigh’s Warehouse District will accommodate current and future demand for intercity passenger rail, commuter rail, buses, taxis and other forms of transportation.
Union Station will replace the current Amtrak station on Cabarrus Street. The new station features a 920‐foot raised platform, a circular drive for dropping off and picking up passengers, and cost‐effective parking options. The raised platform is the first of its kind in North Carolina, allowing easy boarding for all passengers.
City, state and transportation officials joined in the grand opening celebration. Several officials offered remarks at the event, including:
- Mayor Nancy McFarlane
- S. Representative David Price
- C. State Representative Nelson Dollar
- NCDOT Chief Deputy Secretary David Howard
- Joe McHugh, Amtrak VP for State Supported Services & Business Development
Union Station features steel pillars and ceiling beams in the main hall, maintaining the look and feel of the old Dillon Supply warehouse around which the station was built. The station also offers 3,847 square feet of ground‐floor retail space, 6,262 square feet of office space, and a 2,702‐square‐foot retail or restaurant space with a rooftop patio on the third floor. This space has not yet been leased.
Raleigh’s train station is the second busiest in North Carolina. This new transportation hub will easily accommodate the current and growing ridership demand in the city.
McHugh, who has visited many stations in his tenure at Amtrak, remarked, “I will tell you that few match the vision, the grandeur, the utility and the basic this‐was‐built‐for‐the‐ages feel that this station possesses.”
Clancy & Theys was thrilled to be a part of the Union Station project, as it will support the growing and thriving Raleigh population, and we look forward to continuing to support the revitalization of the downtown area.

Many other members of the Clancy & Theys team joined in on the excitement, including Matt Chambers, Tom Clancy, Elizabeth Hartsfield, David Kay, Kyle Snider and Randy Wood.

Clancy & Theys has completed work on Churchill Hall, the most recent addition to Durham’s Imperial Center corporate park.
The 151,579‐square‐foot, five‐story Class A office building features a special glass manufactured by View Dynamic Glass. The glass automatically adjusts its tint based on the sun’s position in the sky and local weather conditions, allowing for views unobstructed by blinds or shades.
Notable companies, including FedEx, Wells Fargo and CenturyLink, have utilized this technology, but Churchill Hall will be the first building in the Triangle to feature the View Dynamic Glass. The glass allowed Clancy & Theys, currently working towards its LEED Silver certification, to construct the building for optimal energy efficiency.
Located at the corner of Page Road and Miami Boulevard, Churchill Hall is the 18th building in the corporate park and the first building constructed in the Imperial Center since the completion of the Imperial Tower in 2009, another Clancy & Theys project. Construction began in 2016.
Tri Properties, the developer of the project, will lease 12,579 square feet of the office space, relocating their offices from another building at the Imperial Center. Telit Wireless Solutions has also signed a lease to move its American headquarters to Churchill Hall from its current location in Morrisville.
Clancy & Theys is excited to be a part of projects like Churchill Hall as they help companies attract top talent to the Triangle—offering office spaces with cutting‐edge workplace features mindful of employee well‐being.
