628'10" - so who came in the closest on the height speculation?!?

Wait just a minute... wasn't this announced at 39 stories?...

So far, I like what I see.

It's 643.9 from my quick look.

628'10" is directly from those renderings (Tryon St Lobby side)

College St is lower then Tryon,  but not sure 15' lower.

Update: College St is about 15' lower so from College St it is about 643.9

Thanks @ricky_davis_fan_21

I love how the glass angles inward and gets narrower toward the top. Should be a sharp looking tower with some nice visual interest.

I still think the tower should front College to be more offset from DEC, but I understand why they chose to front Tryon. I'll settle for a couple of retail spots on College. 

Interesting how they're treating the south facing side. The window cut-out should look nice against the Gantt Center. So excited!:yahoo:

It will easily be the new #4 tallest building in both Carolinas. Just a couple floors shy of the current #3 - Hearst at 659'

Really like the building overall.  On the skyline, it is just different enough to standout.

The Tryon side ground level seems like it could have more retail and maybe a plaza type area.  But, overall, I do like it.

Question - Does the black line below at the base indicate the width of the lot? I'm trying to visualize how wide this is going to be and how flush it's going to appear against the Gantt center and the church.

Since I am up on the Reservation today I knew big news would drop.  Love it.  Is that solar panels on the top? 

KJ literally on the Reservation Qualla Boundary to be exact.

Nice tower. Great addition to that area. And kj, wasn’t your profile square green before? :shok:

I think everyone has changed. I used to be a much lighter shade of green. Now I'm a little blue.

Cheer up fella, we got a way cooler tower than LU1 coming now. Don't be so sad.
