The new Atl tower is beautiful. It looks like a Rogers tower.

I also said I haven't seen it, only been described to me. So as far as I know you are exactly right, but 100% wrong all at the same time.

Take a Midol for your vaginal cramps, dude.

There's no need to be hostile.

How much does Duke Energy want to raise your bill? We’ll know soon.

Maybe we will hear more about the project once Duke gets the hike...

Does anybody have renderings of the old Duke Energy Tower that was scraped post 9-11? 40 story, 530 feet...wonder how it compares to the new design.

Could we please change the image of this form. I really don't like seeing other skylines out lining our city skyscraper form.

I am going to take a guess...M-shaped frames (in the style of DEC handle) forming the corners.

So the official name is Charlotte Metro and is 35 floors above ground...that's two more floors than Legacy Union if it stands.

Don't worry this was all over UP too in the beginning. They submitted their plans prematurely and took them down as soon as it hit press, likely because of the regulatory bodies still needing to approve their rate hike. Probably doesn't look good to propose a significant rate hike and then build a 600' tower.

You can find all the info in there in the Charlotte Observer and Charlotte Business Journal.

I put a rendering on Urban Planet of how it was described to me by a contact. Still pretty crude, but it works I suppose we will see if I'm right.

RDF is right. Somebody posted the link to the article on the previous page...kinda forgot about it. For some reason, the name/info didn't stick for me. Perhaps, we should edit the thread title.

I wouldn't change the title. Legacy Union's name at submission state was "Project Riverboat." I'd imagine Charlotte Metro is just a name its given in their systems and it'll be named something completely different.

I wish they would just reuse One Charlotte's raised corners.

This might take a while...

Quote:
Duke Energy CEO Lynn Good says the company may go to court if regulators block the company from passing the cost of complying with new Federal and state coal ash regulations on to customers. The company’s position is that compliance is a routine cost and therefore should be paid by ratepayers. The Public Staff of the Utilities Commission and N.C. Attorney General’s office, though, say shareholders should pay a big chunk of the cost because of past poor coal ash policies.
