Tropical Grille, a quick-service Cuban restaurant, will fill the space vacated by the Pita Pit on Main Street in Greenville, bringing the retail portion of the Wells Fargo Center to 100 percent occupancy.
Scott Burgess and Lance Byars of commercial real estate firm Colliers International represented the owners of the Wells Fargo Center, CapRocq LLC, in the transaction for the 1,590-square-foot space at 21 S. Main St. This will be Tropical Grille’s first downtown location and its fifth overall, with restaurants currently on Woodruff Road, Pelham Road, SC-14, and Rolling Hills Circle in the Upstate. Burgess and Byars negotiated a 10-year lease for the space, according to Colliers.
Additionally, Burgess and Byars have secured a tenant for the last remaining open retail space in the Wells Fargo Center. The 978-square-foot space is now occupied by “a small office user,” said Byars.
Based in Arkansas, CapRocq purchased the Wells Fargo Center for $33.25 million. It is the company’s first asset owned in Greenville. The company also owns assets in Columbia and Charleston.
The mixed-use building was built in the early 1970s, expanded and renovated in the early 2000s and renovated again in recent years.
It has 200,652 total square feet, including 154,273 square feet of office, 20,138 of retail and 26,241 of residential.
