Ally Charlotte Center (f/k/a Tryon Place) - 26 floors - 427'

Recommended Posts


^Looking at this picture, this thing is clearly not topped out which confuses me because it’s supposed to be 25/26 floors (no 13th) so maybe someone else can explain or count better than me.

I think there is one actual office floor still left possibly.  I count 25 floors no mater which way I count so that means 26 total which is the plan.  Remove 13 that gets to 27 floors which is also the published number.

Still not sure what I’m missing. Look at the rendering. I count 25 floors. Which is where they are now. Yet, it appears they are adding an entire new floor. Last week I assumed that was the hat bracketing based on the rendering. Maybe @ricky_davis_fan_21 can explain?

I believe its a continuation of the sheer core/elevator shaft. I would imagine service elevator would have roof access for A/C repair.

Thank you. That makes sense and now I’m no longer losing my mind. So we can now say again that it’s pretty much topped out (save for the hat and the final core shaft).

I think so, but I emailed Crescent.

Something seems suspicious. I know this could be an elevator shaft- but is the decorative top supposed to be 2-3 floors tall? Or are we getting a surprise RSA Battle House Tower spire added to the top? Hmmm.

It’s totally wack and definitely adds the height of two stories. Makes me wonder if part of it isn’t temporary. If it’s permanent it’s going to be visible over the hat for sure.  

Hopefully @ricky_davis_fan_21 will hear back from Crescent  soon as to what exactly it is. Fingers crossed it’s additional floor/s.

It’s what I expected, the service elevator stops on the roof, which is pretty unique for Charlotte. So the “Ally Hat” will be just as tall.

Now I really want there to be a prohibition bar up there "you have to go through the service entrance"

Don't worry, I'll make it happen.

I'm not thrilled about the extra elevator shaft not being fully hidden by the hat screening.  Another bait and switch by Crescent in their renders. :tw_triumph:

It'll be much better hidden than the chiller at 300 South Tryon, and people have stopped complaining about that. It would be visible in none of the renderings that they have shown, except for the one that is just barely from a Birdseye, and its visible in that render.
