CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte skyline is about to get its first update in four years.

The Charlotte Observer reports (https://bit.ly/1wdUVp8) the 25-story office building, to be called 300 South Tryon, will add a big chunk of prime office space to the center city. The new building is expected to be finished in spring 2017.

Babson Capital Management, which has about 170 employees in Charlotte, will be the tower’s anchor tenant, leasing about a third of the space. The project, which was announced Monday, also includes a 208-room boutique hotel attached to the office tower by a walkway, but executives have said they aren’t ready to disclose more details.

The last new uptown office towers opened in 2010, when the 48-story Duke Energy Center and 32-story 1 Bank of America Center were completed.
