What Building Is This?

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 9/19/2009 1 comment
I had a meeting in downtown Charlotte yesterday (for a newspaper article I'm writing, I got to tour the new Ritz-Carlton that's opening October 1--and it's awesome), and after the meeting was over as I was walking back to my car I noticed several interesting things. Usually when I'm downtown I'm in a hurry to get somewhere, or when I'm driving through I'm too focused on the road and concerned with not hitting a pedestrian (or I'm looking for a coveted street parking space) to really get a good view of the scenes downtown. I took some photos of those scenes yesterday and will run one each day over the next few days. It's nothing groundbreaking--just some snapshots.

Even though we're in the midst of a recession and several planned projects have been shelved, there's still a good bit of construction going on downtown because much of it broke ground before the recession (or before we realized we were in one). This photo below is of the building that's being constructed directly across from Time Warner Cable Arena, on the Trade Street side. I couldn't figure out what the name of this building is or what it's going to be when it's finished. Do you know? If so, post a comment about it.

  1. Hey Jarvis,

    It's a parking deck. It's pretty but according to my friend it's a parking deck:-)
