    Whenever Charlotte gets a super tall it better have an observation deck. That picture @dxartist took from DEC looking down on LU1 reminded me just how much we need one. Future Queen City residents Queen Bey and Jay-Z enjoying the topping out of their new Pyramid Penthouse at Legacy Union.

    Yeah, the water features are the best part of Marshall Park, one of the classic vantage points of the Charlotte skyline. Though the fact that BOACC, Hearst, and a number of other buildings are largely blocked from there have lessened its prominence in recent skyline shots, it still showcases buildings like One Wells Fargo and DEC well. I was mainly interested in seeing how LU1 looked from there. Trees and the board of education block it from being reflected in the lake, but you get a nice view of it from the fountain. Looking forward to seeing how the new Duke Power tower will look from there. By the way, building a large moat around Uptown that you can travel by boat is part of my master plan for Charlotte. Imagine skyline reflection shots from every angle!

    I think it’s all about angles with this tower, and with the pyramid in particular. Overall I think it is a nice addition to the skyline that many cities would kill to have. That said, we have one of the most beautiful skylines in the country and we should expect nothing less than the best. It is good that people are so passionate about what is being built here and I hope that these things are taken to heart for future towers, but we should be thankful that development is happening and it shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. To the newly topped out LU1, welcome to the family! Enjoy being the baby while you can because it won’t be for long!

    Though I think that the new Duke Power Tower will most likely be built more as a complementary tower to DEC, I feel like LU1 makes for a nice neighbor. I believe that the up triangles of the pyramid will complement the down triangles of DEC, especially when they are lit up at night.

    Final installment in the stadium series for this season. I enjoyed watching this tower rise from the stands about as much as I did watching the games (and maybe more so once the season started going downhill). Can’t wait to see how it looks next season!

    Glad somebody got the Bridges reference!

    From a real e-mail I received as a rewards member. Looking forward to picking up some gingerbread glazed doughnuts to do my part in helping to save the gingerbread people. My only complaints are that there are not enough Krispy Kreme shops around Charlotte and they close too early (even on weekends). Sometimes you just want to make a late night doughnut run.
