Yeah, not fan of how many logos are going up on our skyline. That is/was one of the best things about our skyscrapers.

Yes that WeWork sign looks huge they are the largest tenant in that building the First Citizens Bank building but good grief.  In the rezoning request it looked smaller than that.  I will have to see in person myself.

I'm generally not a fan of unneeded government intrusion, especially in something that's fairly trivial at the end of the day. BUT, I wouldn't totally be opposed to a better signage ordinance.

Unfortunately the cat is out of the bag in terms of high rise signage in Charlotte with Regions, BOAT at Legacy, Ally, Grant Thorton etc even Fifth Third has some signage on their tower.  Though this WeWork seems a lot bigger than I imagined.

Isn’t Passport in that same building? I thought they had the upper couple floors. I guess WeWork has more total space. 

Also I thought they were rebranding. brb while I google that.

Duke logo will be HUGE. At least as it’s currently planned

We actually do, everyone of those signs mentioned above has had to get a rezoning to approve them, with the loan exception, possibly Grant Thornton.  GT upsized probably 15 years ago, but not sure if it confirms with the sign ordinance, or if the got a rezoning as well.

I don’t mind it- as long as whatever it’s hanging from is removed. The black letters make it less prominent. It’s a very blah tower that it’s on- so yeah. I agree with everyone else that the logos coming are getting a little out of hand.

Passport has 2 floors maybe 3 but WeWork has 7 full floors and has about 120,000 sq ft.   They missed the boat in Regions tower they are the biggest tenant there too but Regions was first to lease and got naming rights.

At least the Duke logo looks interesting.

Cousins  is buying Tier REIT of Dallas who owns Bank of America Plaza uptown.  Cousins of course has a lot of building uptown 5/3 Center, Gateway Village (50/50 with BofA), Hearst, Nascar Plaza, Dimensional Funds

regardless Charlotte and Austin are the key markets after the ATL 

I like Cousins and their holdings.

Thanks for uploading the investors sheet as well. I dont even know how you found that. I read that they will be the #1 office holders in Austin CBD and Mditwon/Buckhead. Do you have any estimate of what the combined company will be ranked in Charlotte? I know they'll hve Hearst, 5/3, and now B of A Plaza, so I presume Cousins must have moved up a little.

this is my first short movie posted and this was taken by a friend in high places.   This is the WeWork sign being installed.  This movie is rated G for General audiences. 

Having trouble saving the video and attaching it here.

^I'm surprised they're not vacating Two or Three, or is WF basically 'name-only' for those buildings?

Uptown Charlotte has less bank branches than just a few years ago.  Remember Bank of America Plaza had a huge branch none anyone.  400 South Tryon had a branch.  Fifth Third had 2 branches now one branch.  However I am happy that US Bank is opening a branch here.  Probably wanted to get the spot before that NY mega bank came into town JP Morgan Chase.

Adding windows to match those on the right would be my guess?

 

 

Gotta be adding windows for the SunBuTT HQ executive suites.  Corner offices with a view!
