lightwell, the $85 million overhaul of the former City Center Square office tower, is pitching its new look to the downtown office market, seeing an opening for firms with younger employees who want a more welcoming place to work.

The 30-story building at 1100 Main was purchased by SomeraRoad of New York in early 2019 and completely overhauled.

The idea was to return the building designed by the renowned architectural firm, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill of Chicago, back to its 1977 roots, according to Tim Schaffer of AREA Real Estate Advisors.
