Ally Charlotte Center
Ally Charlotte Center is a 27-story office tower located in downtown Charlotte, NC. The project contained approximately 6800 tons of steel and added 742,000 square feet of floor space to the heart of the city. The steel brace frames required heavy columns at the base that weighed in at over 1,400 pounds per foot and required the mobilization of a large hydraulic crane in order to hoist the columns into place. Being located inside I-277, the project required close coordination of deliveries in order to keep the two tower cranes busy and meet the challenging project schedule. The building facade, with its blend of precast panels and glass curtainwall, is a stunning addition to the Charlotte skyline.
