CHARLOTTE, NC-Starwood Capital and Vision Equities are reportedly close to buying the One Wells Fargo office tower here, according to multiple published reports.

Greenwich, CT-based Starwood Capital and Vision Equities of Mountain Lakes, NJ are expected to buy the 42-office tower that was the former headquarters of Wachovia Corp., according to the Charlotte Observer.
