History of Charlotte

Recommended Posts

I had a discussion with an architect -- degree from UNC Charlotte School of Architecture.

Well, they would study plans for large projects and for her class, it was BAC (NCNB Corporate Center).  I got to learn something new.

The original approved plans had a hotel planned to be at Trade and College corner (on the BAC block) with valet and all. Today, I finally looked up the approved plans and sure enough... Hotel is there.

Now the question is: does anyone here know what happened to the hotel planned?

^^^Bank of America owns and developed the Ritz on the very next block when they developed 1 Bank of America Center.   That area is more street level retail and part of Founders Hall on the upper levels.

The Ritz came 20 years later. The original plans from '89 had the hotel, so it would be interesting to find out what happened there.
