Expanding on the Vision

Northwood Office was established by Northwood Investors LLC – a privately-held, global real estate investment and management firm –
to provide a complete approach to fulfilling office space needs. Northwood Investors acquired most of the Ballantyne interests of The Bissell Companies, one of the Southeast’s most prominent developers of successful mixed-use communities.

Northwood Office’s current focus is continuing to develop Ballantyne, a 2,000-acre, master planned community located in the heart of Charlotte. Several decades ago, the Bissell and Harris families envisioned an environment where a diverse population could find opportunities for housing, retail and employment – all within a 10-minute drive. Created on family farmland, the master developers invested in a strong infrastructure to ensure at its inception that Ballantyne would be a sustainable community.

Today, Ballantyne is recognized as one of the most successfully designed and executed mixed-use communities in the nation. Northwood Office is playing a pivotal role in bringing the original vision of Ballantyne to fruition, as Ballantyne connects homes, offices, hotels, golf and other recreational outlets to build a comprehensive and convenient lifestyle.

Northwood Office controls the 535-acre Ballantyne Corporate Park, instilling an unparalleled sense of trust among tenants and the broader community. Continuing to create unprecedented opportunities for businesses to locate and grow, Northwood is elevating Ballantyne’s mission to provide a better quality of life.
