Dude, if Sig tops BoA Charlotte it will be on like donkey kong. Can't let the new kid on the block trump us, especially with a name like Signature Tower. It is quite a nice tower though, I wish it was in Charlotte.

My bet is it is on like Donkey Kong then. My bet is Signature will be around 940'. Better tell Wachovia to add some floors.

In the meantime, I'll contact BOA Atlanta and tell them to put a crane on top, lift off the lid and stick a couple hundred more feet of floors to keep both of you cities at bay.

Renderings of the "New Charlotte Skyline".

Does anyone have any renderings of what the new Charlotte skyline will look like?I saw an old link from March of last year where Rock Hill James had posted renderings.However,the links were gone.I'm a newcomer to the site and not very computer savvy.Anything you kind folks could do would be really appreciated.

Wachovia and Bank of America headquarters are in Charlotte.

Heard Charlotte's new Wachovia tower could top 1000' and include a performing arts center, the Mint Museum of Art, and condos? Can our Charlotte friends confirm this?

isnt the architect that is designing the new Ritz-Carlton and BOA office complex the same designer of "Skybridge" in Chicago? They have done some pretty great designs, like the LA federal courthouse and numerous condo designs.
