Located at 218 South Front Street, diagonally across from the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center and the Trent River bridge, this office is in a prime location in downtown New Bern and perfect for a professional office that wants to be in the heart of the business district but still retain some degree of privacy.

The 2,700 square foot office suite occupies the entire 3rd floor, and was specifically designed for a professional business with 6 spacious and comfortable private offices, all with high vaulted ceilings and lots of natural light. There is a dedicated reception area, a break room with kitchenette, a copy/equipment room, and separate men's and women's bathrooms. Extensive telephone and network wiring are ready for your own systems. The suite is in excellent condition and no up-fitting is needed.

The owner of the building, Dr. William L. Hand III,  occupies the second floor, insuring the building and grounds are always well maintained. The first floor is leased by The Peacock's Plume, a women’s clothing store. The entire third floor is under the complete control of the third floor tenant. The rear entrance and elevator serve the upper two floors, separating professional and retail traffic. (Customers of the Peacock's Plume typically park on the street and use the front or side entrances.) 

6 of the 25 spaces in the private parking lot are marked “2 hour parking only” for short term use of clients of the building. Additional reserved spaces in the adjacent parking lot are available for rent from Haroldson Properties.

A multi-year lease is required, with a monthly rate of $3,000 for the entire third floor, which includes maintenance of mechanical equipment, elevator, and  grounds/parking lot, dumpster services, city water and sewer, and taxes/insurance associated with ownership of the property. Tenant is responsible for internet, phone, cable TV, janitorial services, electrical services, tenant insurance, and any special modification of the space.  

The current tenant, the law firm of Oliver, Friesen, and Cheek, has purchased the old Clark Building on the corner of Middle and Broad streets and is in the process of renovating the building. They intend to move in the fall of 2012.
