One Wachovia to get big first floor makeover

48 posts in this topic

Here's the link: http://www.charlotte.com/mld/charlotte/business/16549452.htm

From a Wachovia memo:

A new Wachovia Securities brokerage office at the street level of the One

Wachovia building in uptown Charlotte. This space will house

financial advisors and employees from the Private Client Group,

which is a division of our brokerage firm that serves clients

through dedicated brokerage offices.

Scheduled for completion in second quarter 2007, the new office

will replace the existing PCG location on the 21st floor of the

Three Wachovia building.

We believe this will be a unique and attractive location for

uptown Charlotte and will add another visual dimension to

Charlotte as the nation's second-largest financial services hub.

The new location will feature innovative technology, including:

* A scrolling stock and business news ticker that will wrap

around the exterior of the building facing College Street and

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (formerly Second Street).

* A vertical stock ticker inside the building.

* A high-tech client media room where financial advisors can

present Envision plans to clients. Envision is the investment

planning process that FAs use to help clients plan for their

financial futures.

* Multiple flat-screen technology, including the projection of

business television news outside with exterior sound.

They should be complete soon,as they state 2nd quarter, but still havent seen much. Can't wait to see what it turns out as just because that corner was so uninviting.

They've been working on this with signage up already for a while. They're using the space that was originally a financial center in number one.

I cannot really picture that building with a stock ticker around it, I would think that that would belong on one of their newer buildings

what charlotte needs is a major media outlet that type of building with news and what not going around it would be very cool

So up to this point, what has been completed and what still needs to be put in place? Are they still on track for a June finish?

Wow not quite as exciting as I had imagined, but I assume this is no where near completed.

Future Home of Wachovia Securities huh? I wonder how Richmond feels about that?

The ticker would have looked better if it rounded the corner instead of being a right angle.

Personally I'm stuck on the Michael Jackson look alike giving the strut for UP!

I don't think Wachovia Securities is relocating from Richmond. Pretty sure this is just a branch office.

This office will be a group of the wealth managment team. The move makes total sense as it makes it easier for clients to access.

(As for WB securities, you will not pin it on me, but why do you guys think they are building the new WB complex??? Who do you really think is going to be occupying this wonderful bldg??? :whistling: That is as far as I go)

The ticker doesn't look nearly as nice as I had expected. It has a distinctly 1980s appearance.

It was on for the first time today. It is unique in that it actually is in color. From ground level it adds a little flare to the city. From up high (18 floors up) it looks kind of silly since it really is small in scale against the bldg.

I had it in my mind that this was going to be just a ticker, with scrolling stocks. But its more like the band inside of an arena with colors, moving advertisements and such. Its small but it adds some color and life to this corner of uptown.
