I have tried and tried to like this building.  But I can't.  This looks flipping horrible.  It is like they ran out of money while building it and said "F&%^ it, build the pyramid!"

hopefully they break down those platorms when this is done.  Otherwise they are very visible. This shows the translucency of material.

Haha I see @ricky_davis_fan_21 already posted it.  Funny because i grabbed the exact same screenshot at 9:34 am too! I agree, it looks not great with those platform shadows.Edit: though it looks a little? better here at 11:24 with a higher sun.image.thumb.png.118043c3c7db83b6053b8e1d73c6f10c.png

Add me to the list!

I've put my finger on what it is that I hate about this building. It exemplifies the "bland, generic southern city" architectural style. Uninspired with tacky details, oddly proportioned, and vaguely looks like it could be part of a mediocre church, built in the '90's and on a budget. I would say this building fits more in line with Raleigh's skyline, than modern day Charlotte's. While I appreciate new buildings in the city, I can't bring myself to like this building, no matter how much I want to.

My unnecessary 2 cents for the day.....

Coming in from Randolph early this morning it didn't look terrible, kinda nice, actually... standing close to it at twilight and looking straight up - eh...not too shabby... looking at it from the deck of the midtown Target - I wanted a slingshot and better aim. I totally get what all the complaining is about. Hot dang.

Which one of you said that this building is all about angles? Yes. That. Kudos to you.

The worst part of this project is the oversized parking garage. The building itself is completely fine and majority of the hate is just because it seems to be the cool thing to do.

Explains a lot.

Looks like John W. Harris III has too much on his plate and is perhaps unwilling to delegate responsibilities to, dare we say, more capable teammates on issues of design. 

Dude must be overworked to the point of delirium to have made a statement like that. Look at his list of responsibilities for Christ’s sake.

That’s an excellent point. Never read that party of his bio. I did call him today, his executive assistant said she’d never heard of the Charlotte agenda. 🧐

The one thing I really hate is how the bright white pyramid doesn't match at all with the rest of the beige facade. Look at the offwhite LU compared to the DEC and it really stands out. So ugly.

I agree. This building is really ugly.  Only thing that is nice about it is the pyramid.

Honestly I don't like any of it anymore. Looking back at the pics from last week, it actually looked way better before the white panels of the pyramid were added. I almost wish they'd leave the pyramid unfinished like how the BofA tower looks in ATL. BofA should be embarrassed to have its name on this POS.
