I like the look...but, I'm uneducated in proper architecture.

no, you're right, its really nice. I'll be interested to see how the elevation continues at the top accross the trade street frontage. That will make or break the design, IMHO.

I've been conditioned to inquire as to the materials used on this very nice architecture...

I'm guessing it'll be stone veneer.

This building is already better than observer. This should be transformative for Charlotte! :)

LOVE IT! The red awnings look great. Warm, inviting, makes the whole building interact with the street well.

This is the rooftop for Orlando. This Charlotte one looks even better quality.

As I count floors there there may be a 15th if there is no 13th. Which is quite possible.

Like it...except for that cupola or whatever you call it on the top.  Take that off and it's pretty sweet.  I'll take it though...

Looks awesome, definitely excited about this project!  From walking around that area yesterday, visualizing things...I know why they chose to build on the pocket park, instead of the lot behind it.  The lot behind the little park is literally surrounded by 3 parking decks.  Probably not the most desirable spot for a GB.  Being along Trade and Church will definitely activate that area even more.  Will have a nice row of hotels on Trade too (Ritz, Omni, Updated Marriott, and the Grand Bohemian).  Below is the lot behind the pocket park.

Now someone needs to replace that parking deck to the left of the picture.

Wow that is a nice looking building! I like that it's not too modern like most of Charlotte's architecture.

September is what they are saying, but yeah Q4 is probably more likely.

Love it.  Looks like a converted, classically-designed, department store.  The campanile is classic.

It reminds me of one of my favorite buildings, the Reliance Building in Chicago, which is now, not surprisingly a boutique hotel.

The view looking down Trade Street holds promise that the rest of the street will be developed as well.

That's what it's called...thanks!  Actually the only part I don't like but I appear to be the only one.

Nah. I'm not a huge fan. Mostly because if you google "campanile" you'll see what it actually means and how that compares to what they're proposing.

But in general, I'll take their faux campanile and the rest of the architecture. It's not mind blowing, but based on what I can see I like it. It looks like a solid infill building.
