I'm sooooo jealous of you guys.  The city must feel alive with all of this activity.

The good thing is that no where in the Carolinas is too far from Charlotte, so everyone can enjoy it.  For that matter, Uptown is a little less than 100 miles from the Virginia border to the north, so Charlotte is really the nucleus of a tri-state area.

I really like this building, but can’t help but ask, did they build this too short?  I know the cost will rise rapidly at certain points in height, but it seems like this could have been in the 35-40 story range.  Not complaining, I love the building visually, just thinking of the economics.

I don't know bro, where I live in the Carolinas is very far from Charlotte. I can get in my car and be in DC in about half the time I could get to Charlotte. :D

I’ve driven north up I-77 many times from Uptown, and it’s only about 90 miles to the Virginia border.  Thus, from Virginia to SC is only about 100 miles via I-77.  Since NC isn’t very big from north to south, and since Charlotte sits almost in the middle of the state from east to west, it’s very accessible to almost all of NC and must of SC. Thus, we can all enjoy it.

I have a friend that works at Ally in the current building uptown and he was was saying that he might not get to move into the new building because they are saying they don't have enough room.

Maybe we will see Ally II by built at Legacy Union if the new BB&T does not beat them to it.  :)

I know I have mentioned this before, but I can’t believe another hotel is not being announced in that area with all of the office development.  With the growth of S Tryon and Southend, hotel rooms will be hard to get.

The new building Ally is moving to is still 25% unoccupied so I think Ally would lease those floors if they were projecting to be out of space. Most likely there is confusion among employees at the existing Ally Center on Church Street since they are getting moved into WeWork facilities while the company is in between leases Uptown. Ally will be vacating their Church Street office over the course of 2019 and moving into WeWork / temp space. 

For reference, the 400,000 square feet Ally is moving into is almost double the 216,554 it leases at Ally Center on Church Street. The company will consolidate the South Park employees (~80,000 sq. feet) and Ballantyne employees (~25,000 square feet) too, but still have an extra ~80,000 sq feet in the new property for them to grow into over their current footprint.

In addition, Ally might have bumped up their lease from 400k square feet. The building is showing 75%+ leased, but Ally's lease would account for less than 60% of the building at 400k. Haven't heard anybody else announced.

I agree, I was hoping they will be a catalyst to develop the transit center site.
