A partnership that includes local developers in December purchased the Wilmington headquarters office building of growing fintech company nCino.
The property is at 6770 Parker Farm Drive behind Mayfaire Community Center. nCino, which provides cloud-based banking software to banks around the world, has additional office space at Mayfaire.
Cloud Real Estate Holdings LLC, managed by Raiford Trask III, Bruce Cameron IV and Dan Smith, bought the more than 95,000-square-foot building for $16.3 million on Dec. 18, according to property tax records and state filings. The seller was Wilmington Investors LLC of Charlotte.
Plans have been submitted to the city of Wilmington to add a five-story parking deck to the property, adjacent to the nCino office, at 6780 Parker Farm Drive, city records show. Trask is listed as the owner/developer. The garage would hold more than 640 spaces.
Neither nCino nor Cloud Real Estate Holdings representatives had a comment Thursday on the sale or parking deck project.
The site plans, labeled "nCino Phase 1 Parking Deck," are expected to be discussed at the city's Technical Review Committee meeting Jan. 28, according to Wilmington's project tracking website.
