Facts

  • Is connected to Two Wells Fargo Center at all 12 levels on the east side.
  • Constructed atop the site once occupied by the Mecklenburg County Courthouse.
  • A large, 9-story mural portraying Muggsy Bogues, Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson, who are 3 former players for the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets, was dedicated in 1995 on the southern facade.
  • Subsequent players portrayed in the mural included Glen Rice, Anthony Mason, Vlade Divac and the team's mascot, Hugo the Hornet. The mural was discontinued in 1999 as it was becoming more obscured by the construction of Three Wells Fargo Center.
  • The never-built Four First Union Center was once proposed for this site in the late 1990s.
  • Originally this only had ten floors in the early modernist style. Two floors and its second, modernist facade were added in a subsequent renovation.
  • In its second major renovation its new facade was modeled to compliment the neighboring Two Wells Fargo Center.
  • A complete renovation and modernization commenced in late 2004 and will be complete by 2006.
  • This is the first modern office building constructed within Uptown Charlotte.
  • The top two floors were completed in late 1980 as well as the neighboring plaza at a cost of $3 milliion.
  • A 25-by-75-foot space was created through the middle of the building to accommodate new elevators, restrooms, stairs, mechanical and ventilation systems as a part of its most recent renovation.
  • Formally re-opened to the public on Friday, May 12, 2006.
