Both towers are great but BOA Charlotte wins IMO because of the beautiful and futuristic crown.

I give the nod to the Bank of America Corporate Center because everything about it is tied into the history of Charlotte. It stands at the historic and geographic center of Charlotte, it has exactly the number of floors as there were in Queen Charlotte's reign, and it sports a regal crown in this city named for a queen. It's an integral symbol of the city by design.

I've had the opportunity to live near both cities, and when I was younger, I was moved from Ohio to North Carolina. When we passed by Charlotte for the first time, I thought we were back in Cleveland because the buildings are so similar. I think I like them both!
