DenverDane, much like the other threads you put together for us, this is yet-another excellent photo tour. Charlotte looks good and it is getting better every day. A ton of impressive residential - and not only - projects will add significant population to the core of the city. Can't to see the sequels ;)

Wow, those are amazing photos of Charlotte. I really love that town. I once spent a Sunday afternoon doing bellyflops onto the thousand dollar couches inside the BOA building.

Loved the additional photos :eek:kay:

One good look at the Seventh Street Station parking garage and we should realize that parking decks can be built as nice and elegant structures, not just as lifeless "vehicle containers". Charlotte has been doing a lot of nice things to build a pleasant urban core. I also liked the last photo (Charlotte Plaza) :eek:kay: Thanks for sharing these great photos with us!!!

Nice shots. A couple of these are among the better angles I've seen (especially on Charlotte Plaza, which is a damned hard building to photograph effectively).

Charlotte is one of my favorites cities, I love to walk its uptown during any season of the year. On a saturday evening is nice to watch weddings; brides and grooms going down the streets, people dressed up, families taking pictures; it is fun.
DenverDane thanks, you have been doing a good job with these threads.

Thanks Denver Dane!

Do you take requests? hehhee I keep reading that Charlotte's IJL Tower has a lovely street plaza. I've never gotten to see it!

Great photos. One building you listed looks a lot like a slightly shorter version of Nashville's L&C Tower. It is the building marked as "Trademark and the Carillon Tower".

BOA and Hearst are always impressive.

@lancetop: Hehe, sure, if you pay for the plane ticket... ;) Actually, if the street plaza is so nice, I failed to notice it.... Shame on me.

@Plasticman: Thank you. That would be the TradeMark tower.

^ I think the street plaza you guys are referring to might be the Transamerica building, which is next door to IJL. I'll try and dig up some pics.
