Looking to scratch your uptown construction itch?
The 33-story building, an adjoining parking garage and public plaza are expected to be complete in early 2019. It’s the first part in a new, 10-acre development at Stonewall and Tryon streets, where the Observer was formerly located. Bank of America has leased about 500,000 square feet at the tower, leaving about 300,000 square feet available.
At 640 feet tall, the building will be the fourth-tallest in Charlotte, ahead of One Wells Fargo Center and behind Bank of America’s headquarters, the Duke Energy Center and the Hearst Tower.
Future phases of the Legacy Union project, as it’s been named, will include shops, restaurants, hotels and residences (apartments and maybe condominiums). Developer Lincoln Harris and their partner Goldman Sachs, who bought the site for $37.5 million, haven’t specified any tenants for those phases, for which they’re still finalizing plans.
