Fulcrum BioEnergy, Inc., a clean energy company that develops, owns, and operates plants that convert household waste into clean, renewable transportation fuels, including diesel and jet fuel, has signed a seven-year lease for a new 6,300 square foot office space in Patrick Square. Fulcrum’s engineering and technology team will occupy the mixed-use building at 107 Market Street located above SunnySide Café. The office space is currently undergoing construction by general contractor, Hogan Construction, and is expected to open by September 2019.

The mixed-used community will allow Fulcrum to continue to expand in a location that is vibrant, connected and convenient. CBRE’s, Shelby Dodson and Tommy Molin, arranged the lease on behalf of Patrick Square’s Owner and Developer, JMC Communities. Fulcrum was represented by Sorrel Hoover of Keller Williams Western Upstate.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to work with Fulcrum, a well-respected company, aiming to make a difference in leading the way to a clean and sustainable future,” said Shelby Dodson, Listing Agent at CBRE. “We feel Patrick Square is a perfect fit for Fulcrum and are pleased to help bring these two parties together and facilitate this transaction.”
