Developer: Arts Council

The only downtown observation floor/deck in the Carolinas, on the 20th floor.

Refractive cladding creates a spectrum of colors in the visible light (prism effect).

The tower twists so it can support electricity generating panels, that move in the wind.

Will have programed animated light projections at night.

It will become part of the Winston Square Park Amphitheatre, as the stage and half-roof over the venue.

It will also be used as multi-level meeting space for conferences, with a beautiful view of the city.

The design is based on Pilot Mountain, which towers over the city, to the northwest.
