Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

I can’t wait to see the grand staircase.  I think it will be a gathering place like the ones at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the NY Public Library.

DEC 2 is going to have a better grand staircase fronting college. but I didn't say that. I'm anxious to see the latest RTAP for Legacy Union, they were AGAIN changing the layout of the staircase and promenade.

Wow.  That sounds nice.  Will DEC2 have any fountains?

There haven't been any in the past ten years though that I can think of (other than in the two new parks).   One of my favorites is the Bailey Fountain in your royal borough: Kings.

Although I'm not thrilled by the gigantic branch in the lobby, I am excited about the 34'x66' video wall that will face the staircase/promenade.  I think this will be a very cool, modern touch that will be a nice contrast to BOACC's old school lobby of fresco murals.  Just like in the movies, I imagine walking into the new BOA at LU and seeing the big video board and hearing an Alexa/Siri woman's voice say above "Welcome to Bank of America - The future of banking is here".  A stock ticker ribbon board running around would be a nice touch and virtual assistant helpers lol.

You can see into the lobby from Church Street now, and it's about as underwhelming as the exterior. I'll try to get some non-drive by pictures.

^ Great shot, @Crucial_Infra!!!

I was wondering why everyone kept leaving "laugh" reacts on this... damnit. Haha I swear this wasn't a joke. I didn't notice the OxBlue watermark. This is my first time seeing this webcam angle. Totally assumed it was his pic.

Looks like the last bit of scaffolding was removed from around the pyramid yesterday.  Via

Does this break some sort of record for the fastest constructed tower in North America. Never seen a tower go up so FAST.

I was driving and didn't have a chance to snap a picture, but they are installing glass in one of the stairwells facing Stonewall. It really helps break up the monotonous screening and brick.
