Where in the CLT?

Posted on 28 Apr 2008 by Ben Ullman

can you identify these buildings?

Can you identify the eight buildings in the images above? All are within an easy walk of the center of Uptown Charlotte. The first person to name all eight in the comments wins a signed, limited-edition.…. um, bragging rights, ;-) or maybe even one of the cool new CLT Blog T-shirts when we get them from the presses.

Flickr is a good resource to help you find the buildings’ names.

You can also look around here and you might see the full-size versions.

    Wow, I do not know my Charlotte buildings.. My guesses:

    5 — Bank of America Building
    6 — hertz tower
    7 — Bobcats Arena
    8 — EpiCenter construction?

    The others I have no idea. I should spend more time Uptown than I do…

    Yeck, yea. I plan to do this again. And it will get harder!
    Justin did a slight edit before publication and put in the part about some CLT Blog t-shirts… I think Rick and Jon should each get one!

  17. Jon 29 Apr 2008 at 9:16 PM

    I will wear my new shirt with pride! And I welcome the next contest–I am always up for a geographic/architectural challenge. Bring it on, Ben!

    That was actually Matt w/ the prize editing. And it is official, both Rick and Jon get our wicked new shirts. As soon as we get them!

    Rick, Jon, send me your shirt sizes (American Apparel if it matters): justin at cltblog.
