The Wells Fargo Center, located in the 4.6 acre block bounded by Monticello Avenue, Freemason Street, Charlotte Street, and Bank Street, is a 1,300,000 sq ft mixed-use project. The 22-story high-rise office tower incorporates 258,000 sq ft of Class A office space over 11 floors with two large balconies on the 17th floor.

The Wells Fargo Center site is in downtown Norfolk and as such the footprint of the buildings extended out to the property lines and C&T did a wonderful job managing this difficult logistical arrangement.
