Here's my prediction on the design of the new Duke tower.  2/3 of you will not like but I will love it.   As I love tall building I will not lie they give me a major natural high! 

I think in the end I think it will be well received and 88% of people on this board will like the design.

Buildings are só secretive in Charlotte. Meanwhile you have those 3 developers in Raleigh, Nashville, and Greensboro announcing 1000 footers yearly. Giratina, Kane and the other GSO developer. Lol

Because Charlotte's tallest buildings are built for Fortune 100 companies, with boards, investors, customers, tens of thousands of employees and lots of eyeballs on them. They don't need to put massive amounts of marketing behind buildings that will start off majority leased.

Have any of those 1000' buildings planned gotten any traction or better yet construction activity?

Also - Anyone know if Rezoning is required for this Lot or can Duke build 'by right'?

I don't think Raleigh has ever had a proposal over 600 feet, so I don't know where that came from. Greensboro currently has one at 651 feet. Nashville Signature Tower went from 1030, to 807, to what is now  505 CST which would be the 6th tallest building in Charlotte at  543 feet

Thanks for the info.  Seems like it's a far cry from 'Proposing' a Tower to actually funding and building a Tower.  CLT doing pretty good from that perspective.

As long as it isn't a "box" design, I think 2/3 of us will be happy!  :tw_lol:

I find Raleigh to be pretty lame.  Charlotte is dramatically better.

A wise commercial developer once told me a square is the most space efficient shape.

With exceptions, most new office towers rising in the U.S., whether in NY, Chicago, Houston, Charlotte, etc. are basically boxes.   Supposedly, tenants want big, open floor plans.

BofA's new tower in New York, which will rise on Sixth Avenue, a few buildings west of its iconic NY office, will be a simple, 650' box.  Personally, I prefer LU1.

Photo of the lot today maybe someone can take this photo and draw in something to scale where it would be.  This the last surface parking lot on South Tryon inside the loop. 

as for Tony G's tower that is proposed at 750 feet as a condo tower I would not hold your breath Nashville.

Probably going to have to zoom out to get the scale lol.
