Today’s photo shows the Charlotte Plaza office tower. Although, the tower is only the 15th tallest in Charlotte, it stands out with it’s distinctive black glass exterior.
We enjoy the building primarily because the offices, of our doctor, are in the building, Bentley’s restaurant is on the top floor, and a Starbucks is in the lobby.
Following is a link to a Wikipedia article about the Charlotte Plaza. It is located at 201 S. College street.
This office tower is a recent addition to the Charlotte skyline. During construction the signs referenced Legacy Bank, then recently the building name was changed.
Following is a link to the Bank of America Tower website. The tower is at the intersection of Tryon and Stonewall.
Today’s photo was taken from the Atrium at Two Wells Fargo Center. The white tower, in the background, is where I work.
Following is a link to the Two Wells Fargo Center which is located at 325 South Tryon.
On our evening stroll we were impressed by the number of cement trucks lined up at one of the many construction sites in Uptown Charlotte.
This construction site is for the Bank of America Tower at 620 S. Tryon.
Construction continues at a rapid pace and the Alley building is one of several active sites. When this photo was taken we counted ten construction cranes.
The taller building to the left is the Duke Energy Center. The building, in the reflection, is the Bank of America Tower.

Today’s photo shows the loading dock under one of the office towers in Uptown Charlotte. Notice the sliver trash chute and blue trash compator on the left side of the photo. An interestingly small unit.
This photo was taken in the loading dock under Three Wells Fargo Center. The trash shut services the Ratcliffe Condos. The address is 435 South College Street.
Today’s photo shows the YMCA on a quite Sunday afternoon. This branch is in Uptown Charlotte and is connected to the Overstreet Mall and all of the office towers. As a results on weekdays the scene is much busier.
This photo was take in the Childress Klein YMCA at 301 S. College.
UNC Charlotte has large campus North East of uptown however they also maintain a unique presence in Uptown.
Interestingly the uniqueness is not just the offset floors … notice the windows.
This photo was taken at 320 East North Street. Following is an article about the UNC Charlotte Center City
It was exciting and a little embarrassing to discover a new building in Uptown Charlotte. This building is located three blocks from where we live and was constructed in the last year.
Seriously I must be working too hard.
This photo was taken at 311 East 5th Street. Following is a link to Springhill Suites the newest property in Uptown Charlotte.
This is the view from our balcony in Uptown Charlotte. No green grass on this side of our condo complex. However, the view does have an appeal.
Three Wells Fargo Center is located at 401 South Tryon.
The Charlotte Plaza stands out against blue sky. I especially like the cloud reflection which blends nicely with the cloud behind the building.
The building is being remodeled at present although you cannot see that in this photo.
The Charlotte Plaza is found at 201 South College.
The recently opened Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel has a roof top bar which we have attempted to visit twice. However it is closed on Sundays and that is the day we keep trying. Maybe the front desk will let management know there is an opportunity on Sunday because they are having to turn people away ;)
The Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel overlooks Romare Bearden Park.
Today’s photo shows the 330 South Tryon building, Charlotte’s newest office tower. The photo was taken from my office window.
Look to the left and you see the entrance to Latta Arcade. I like the blooming trees in front. You may remember my recent photo showing the inside of Latta Arcade
I took this photo because I liked the contrast of shadows and sunlight. The red brick building, in the background, sits behind Saint Peters Catholic Church and as you can see the building has a modern “church architecture“.
The building houses a pizza restaurant, a steak restaurant, and office space.
The photo was taken in The Green at 435 South Tryon.
Another beautiful day with more blooms. Once again a photo opportunity presented itself in our favorite park, The Green.
This photo was taken at 435 South Tryon. The building, in the background is the Duke Energy Center.
On a recent stroll I was surprised to see horses on Tryon. The scene is similar to a recent photo titled Dog Crossing. Both the horses and the dogs have little bit of a Beatles Abbey Road album cover feel.
This photo taken at 230 South Tryon. The building in the background is a condo complex called 230 South Tryon.
