Epic Games, Turnbridge Equities, and Denali Properties have agreed to transfer the ownership of the 980,000-sf, 87-acre Cary Towne Center, located in Cary, N.C., to Epic. Epic purchased the mall for $95 million.

Epic plans to convert the former mall into its new campus. The project will include both office buildings and recreational spaces, allowing Epic the flexibility to create a campus from the ground up, completely customized to the company’s long-term growth. Plans for the HQ campus are still in the early phases, but the company is working with the Town of Cary to explore ways some of the property can be used by the community.

“After years of shifting development plans for the Center, we are thrilled the space will be utilized to its full potential and turned into something the Town and community of Cary can be proud of,” said Jason Davis, Managing Director at Turnbridge Equities, in a release.

Epic hopes the new HQ campus will be completed by 2024.
