Calgary, AB Canada | 2019
The Legacy Union Bank of America Tower sits adjacent from the Bank of America Stadium in downtown Charlotte. One of the design considerations for this building was to have a very large pyramid structure top out the building that would light up in the evening.
Hot-dip galvanizing was chosen to protect the beauty and integrity of the uniquely designed structural steel used in the tower’s roof-top pyramid. The result is a lustrous finish and protection against corrosion that will last a lifetime.
Legacy Union is a 10-acre, mixed-use development between Tryon Street and Bank of America Stadium that will will be home to a mix of Class A office space, retail and other development.The first phase of Legacy Union features a 33-story office tower of stone and glass, which was set for completion in the first quarter of 2019. A glass-and-steel pyramid will cap the building, making it a landmark on the Charlotte skyline.
A galvanized coating was chosen to protect the beauty and integrity of the steel used in the tower’s roof-top pyramid. 101.32 tons of uniquely designed structural steel hollow tube elements were were carefully dipped in molten zinc. The result is a lustrous finish and protection against rust and corrosion that will last a lifetime, even in constant exposure to the elements.
The project was delivered to the job in fourteen different sequences that span over a two month period. The project was then erected at the project site that took an additional two months where the parts were bolted together first and then flown with a tower crane to the top of the building. This final piece of the pyramid was lifted into place as shown in the video above.
