  1. I am thankful for this building. However, I only like the view of it heading south on Graham street though. I don’t care for that L shape top residential section. I’m wondering if the top residential units will really only be occupied by local FNB employees or those who come to town on business occasionally? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah probably. I’m am glad for it this tower. Bummed that it went from being a new 3rd tallest to being fifth. Although, I suppose it may appear the same size or bigger than BOAT because even though BOAT is 632’ I think the pyramid counts for about 100’ of that. Plus it’s pretty definitive where that pyramid starts at 532’. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Tyree Ricardo had posted actual elevations back in July I think. It had shrunk to 609’ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes the main building is office and retail. It’s that back half that’s starting to rise that will be parking. Some more retail too I think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Were you up in Ally for those Pics? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’ve had some projects at the hospital in statesville recently. I found myself using the toll lanes a lot. Especially at the end of the day on the way back south starting at exit 36 at least down to the 485 interchange. It did save me collectively a ton of time. Worth it in my opinion. One time there was an accident at exit 29/30. That had a lot of people jumping into the toll lane. It still moved pretty well. I do have the sticker reader. It does suck when you get behind some people in the single lane area, but that single lane stretch isn’t that long. You can usually get around them as it opens to 2 lanes which half the time is when the car in front finally decides to speed up [emoji37]. You do have to watch all the dang state troopers hiding at different points where the the toll readers are. You can just see their lights sometimes above the concrete dividers. Others you go by them and see them in your rear view mirror ready to jump out and get you if you blow by them. Sometimes perhaps the cars are there with no one in them to though. Just a scare you deterrent. Some sit out in the open in the median down by exits 25 and 23 causing people to slam on the brakes. I have seen them pull some people over. The signs by toll readers say “traffic laws photo enforced”. Im not sure what that means if anything. A few times for the heck of it I road it all the way down until it runs out at just past exit 10. You get a great elevated view of uptown as you take the curved over pass up over the 85 interchange. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I don’t know of any. I’m curious what has prompted this question? Was there a window washer accident elsewhere recently? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Repost from back in June from navigator319 and are lost compadre RickyDavisFan aka CLTDevelopment on Insta. Purple is the plaza and walk way space. I’m assuming there will be a walkable alley way on the museum side too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. They are busting your chops here friend. It’s good natured. They had it in blue text. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Yes it is topped. I posted a screen shot pic from Instagram awhile back of them raising the final white beam with a tree. And yes Since it topped in December they used a Christmas tree for. They confirm it in the pic too. White beam with signatures and a tree always signifies a top out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Skyscraper Page is the first site like this I ever came across! I check it for many cities from time to time. Charlotte needs some serious updating with all the construction of the past 10 years. They’ve added BoAT but don’t have Barings on there and Barings was done before BoAT started. Many others to add as well. I also know of Emporis and Skyscraper City. Skyscraper City is how I found Urban Planet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I don’t think the screening is done. Not sure why they’ve stopped. I think of the metal framing spacing is interesting. Also that back corner of the deck can’t be done until the the hotel buck hoists are gone and the building is closed in. My only speculation is that perhaps what ever will over lay the metal is on back order. Due to covid. I know before I pulled off that job back at the end of June there were some decorative exterior materials for the ground floor level of the Ally building there were gonna be delayed for quite awhile. If I remember correctly they were coming from Australia. Perhaps it’s something similar for the final deck screening [emoji2369]. All though at this point I don’t think anyone of us here will be satisfied with the final product anyway. [emoji38] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I had guessed this past June about 10-12 floors above street level by the end of December. Give or take a couple. It seems to be right on track for that. Did we have a pool going on here ? If so do I win any Krispy Kreme or anything? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
