Duke Energy Center (formerly Wachovia Corporate Center) is now completed in Charlotte, NC.  Personally I think it’s about as close to flattery as you can get to the Shanghai World Financial Center… what do you think?

I prefer the slimmer sleeker profile that the SWFC has, clearly it has a height advantage, but the lines are seem much cleaner.  The Duke Energy Center on the other hand appears much more traditional.

If anything this building has shown the sad state of the economy.  After Wachovia was bought out by Wells Fargo, they ended up only occupying five of their originally planned 14 floors of the building.  Wake Forest originally was going to have a campus in the cultural arts campus as well but pulled out of the project after the buyout.

Nonetheless, I’m glad it was built and completed.
