About One Wachovia Center
One Wachovia Center is a skyscraper in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is the headquarters for Wells Fargo subsidiary Wachovia. At 588 feet (179 m) tall and 42 stories, it is the fourth tallest building in Charlotte. When it was opened on September 14, 1988 it was the tallest building in North Carolina. In 1992, One Wachovia Center was surpassed by the Bank of America Corporate Center, and again in 2002 by Hearst Tower, another Bank of America building. It is considered Charlotte's first postmodern high-rise. One Wachovia Center is the largest of several buildings making up Wachovia Center. It was known as One First Union Center prior to First Union's purchase of Wachovia in 2001, and subsequent adoption of Wachovia's name in 2002. Although Wachovia is the largest tenant and the namesake of the building, it is occupied by several large North Carolina businesses and national law firms. Wachovia Center also includes Two Wachovia Center, Three Wachovia Center, a Hilton hotel, and a 58 unit condominium complex. In 2007, Wachovia announced that it will be moving its headquarters to the new Wachovia Corporate Center, scheduled for completion in 2010.
