In April 2012, a year after acquiring Qwest Communications, Centurylink sold the Bell Plaza/Qwest Plaza property to New York real estate investment firm Clarion Partners for $137 million and is now leasing floors 3–15 to Centurylink and floors 16–32 to Nordstrom (floor 18 is currently occupied by The Urban Renaissance Group). Centurylinks NW Regional President, Brian Stading issued a statement claiming that the tower was not a fundamental component of their business strategy. Seattle real estate company, The Urban Renaissance Group, represented Clarion in the sale and will operate the building for the new owner.
