Update: This project has been scaled down, but is now approved by the City. The new version will be 24 stories tall. It will eliminate the office component. Instead it will consist of condominiums, hotel space and shops. If plans work out the construction should be completed in 2010.

Reynolds and Reynolds, family partners and creators of the Quorum Center, have received approvals for their planned glass and concrete Reynolds Tower. They finally won approval for a 32 story version of the proposal. Because this requires acquisition of public land, an agreement with the city exists, revised often in the past, that requires development to be completed in July 2009.

The tower itself remains tall, but is smaller in overall size than earlier proposals. The Reynolds team went through many revisions of just what mix of uses would work best. They ended up with a varied mix of office, hotel, retail, parking and some condominiums. Rising from a relatively high elevation, at the corner of Hillsborough and Dawson Streets, it will be one of the tallest in the downtown skyline. The location also bridges new development in the Central Business District with new development around Glenwood South. The building would have a glass crown on top, lit at night for maximum impression.
