Can you name that building?

You may have passed by it once or twice, or even every day. One thing remains certain: regardless of how many times you've seen it, walked inside it or even lived in it, you may not know just what it truly is. What is the "it," you may ask? It would be the building that stands tall and narrow at the corner of East 5th and Tryon. 

Here are some pictures of the building, as well as some ways in which you may recognize it.

1.) You may be familiar with this building as the home of the Bojangels, Just Fresh and Qdoba.

2.) You may also know this building for its position in the heart of uptown Charlotte, directly across from the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Founders Hall and the Bank of America tower.  

3.) You may even recognize this building as just tall and tan and on your left (or right) as you process to and fro work. 

Regardless of how/if you remember this building, it is very significant to Charlotte's historical and cultural past. For more information, please check back later. 

Thank you for reading!
