No it does not.

Charlotte probably will never get a 1,000'+ tower. Although they're building them like there's no tomorrow in NY, they only make sense in very large, dense, expensive cities like NY. The cost of building escalates dramatically above around 800', as it's more difficult to provide water, plumbing, elevator service, etc.

In fact, London, LA, and SF are getting only their first 1,000' towers now, and they're basically 800' towers with 200' unoccupied crowns tacked on (like BofA in Atl). Therefore, they don't require water and elevators at 1,000'.

Maybe in 50 years, Charlotte will have the density to warrant such towers. Currently, however, it -- like other typical American cities (Phoenix, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Dallas, Seattle, San Diego, Tampa, Etc) does not.

Doesn't look too nice, but there is a lot of construction going on in Charlotte.

^ The Charlotte area has about 18 headquarters, whereas the Triangle has about 9, according to that list. Charlotte proper has about 11, and Raleigh has 6.

Charlotte and Raleigh have hundreds of headquarters, probably close to a thousand. That list doesn't even show Coca-cola Bottling Co.

Yet you used it to attempt to prove a point you've still yet to prove...

Charlotte is the headquarters for more companies than Raleigh.
