Facts

  • Wachovia sold the building to American Financial Real Estate Trust in 2004, but will continue to lease space there.
  • Architect Cesar Pelli has called the Wachovia Center his best building, likening it to a rosebud ready to bloom. He used local Moravian themes in the design, including the Moravian arch (dome and entrance) and the Moravian Christmas Star (marble mosaics in the lobby).
  • The building is sheathed with Olympia white granite from a single quarry in Sardinia, Italy.
  • It is the only granite domed skyscraper in the world. The dome encloses mechanical equipment and rises 56 feet.
  • It surpassed Winston Tower as Winston-Salem's tallest, and is also the tallest building in the Carolinas outside Charlotte.
  • The gardens around the site were designed by Cesar Pelli's wife Diana Balmori, a landscape architect.
