The Hearst Tower in Charlotte, North Carolina is a 47-story skyscraper along North Tryon Street that rises 201 meters (659 ft) in height. It opened on 14 November 2002 and is the 3rd-tallest building in Charlotte. The 32-story tower rests atop a 15-floor podium. Located within the podium is a three-story, 17,000-square-metre (180,000 sq ft) trading floor designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and operated by Bank of America. The building is currently owned by Cousins Properties Incorporated, although Hearst Communications also has offices in the building.

The building's reverse floorplate design makes the upper floors average 2,200 square metres (24,000 sq ft) compared to an average of only 1,900 square metres (20,000 sq ft) for the lower floors.

In the College Street lobby are brass railings designed by Edgar Brandt that were rescued from an Au Bon Marche department store in Paris. The Hearst Plaza, a 49 by 20m public plaza lined with restaurants, shops, and the Sonia and Isaac Luski Gallery, is located next to the main entrance off North Tryon Street. In front of the plaza is a 3-metre (9.8 ft) glass and bronze sculpture crafted by Howard Ben Tre entitled the Castellan, which translates to "keeper of the castle." Within the lobby is Collaborate214, which is a coworking space introduced in October 2014.

The building is located across the street from the Bank of America Corporate Center and 201 North Tryon.

The building is owned by Cousins Properties of Atlanta, Georgia. [1]
