Global Headquarters Coming to Northwest Loop

Rhyne Station Corning Corning Optical Communications, a division of New York-based Corning Inc., are moving their headquarters from Hickory, NC to northwest Charlotte, NC, just off the I-485 loop. The $38 million headquarters will be located in Riverbend Village, just a few miles north of Lockard’s master-planned community, Rhyne Station.

Rhyne Station, a 131 acre site, has planned a blend of office, retail, and residential living where architecture, landscaping and natural features will complement the surrounding natural resources.

More than 400 jobs would move from Hickory to the new headquarters scheduled to open in 2018. The Charlotte headquarters could boast an additional 150 jobs by 2023 with an average salary of $91,000 according to the Mecklenburg County Commission.

“This is an amazing opportunity for the local economy,” said Robert Smith Jr., CCIM, President Lockard. “The jobs being created along the northwest loop of I-485 will help spur development and enhance the quality of life in the local community.”

The company says construction of the new headquarters could begin as early as the second half of 2016.
