A new office building is coming to downtown Charlottesville.

Charlotte, N.C.-based Insite Properties has broken ground on 3TWENTY3, a 120,000-square-foot structure which should be complete in spring 2020. The space at 323 Second St. S.E. is being transformed into a five-story office building with a four-level parking garage.

The building will be built on what is now the back half of The Glass building and a parking lot. The front of the Glass building — currently occupied by Augustiner, The Bluegrass Grill & Bakery and Paradox Pastry — will continue to be used as retail space.

McGuireWoods already has signed up to occupy 17,218 square feet on the third floor of the building. Building amenities include a rooftop terrace with patio, an event facility and electric-car charging stations.

Construction of 3TWENTY3 will be handled by Atlanta-based Batson-Cook Construction. The architect is Charlotte, N.C.-based BB&M Architecture. Jay Kessler will serve as project manager/owner representative. Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer’s John Pritzlaff is the leasing representative for the building.
