We finally have a glimpse of plans for the office tower that’s going in the hole in the ground that used to be the Charlotte Observer building.
Remember, this is the major project that’s expected to have 1 million square feet of office space, about 27,000 square feet of ground floor lobby and retail, and open space.
Here’s how the design looks if you’re facing it from across the Stonewall/Tryon intersection.
That’s the Duke Energy Center at right, for reference.
Here’s how it will sit on the block.
No confirmation on whether that’s bocce ball between the building and Hill Street.
The building looks pretty much the same from all sides.
Note the glass on the ground floor that will let people look in.
The plans envision a “pedestrian promenade” on the Mint Street side, with parking included inside the building.
Note that these images aren’t final and there are lots of “future development” spots still on it.
