    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - This summer, an office development in South End that's home to Fortune 500 companies and local groups alike received its certificate of occupancy.

    Companies like coworking giant WeWork and consulting firm Slalom have since settled in, and employees are already working at The RailYard, a two-building project that includes about 300,000 square feet of office space and 30,000 square feet of retail. The north building's office space is exclusively leased to Allstate Corp., which said in 2017 that it would add more than 2,000 jobs here over three years as part of an expansion.

    The RailYard was built on the former HD Supply site, a block bounded by Tryon, Bland, Winnifred and Winona streets in red-hot South End. Charlotte-based Beacon Partners broke ground on the project in late 2017.
