Survey of Historic Buildings and Structures in Center City Charlotte

The Art Deco style Charlotte Observer/Charlotte News Building was demolished in 1970 with no serious attention having been given to its preservation. 

Charlotte's Union Bus Terminal was demolished in May 2004 to make way for part of the Johnson and Wales Campus.  This was Charlotte's best surviving example of Art Moderne style architecture.

This July 2003 photograph shows two historic buildings being demolished on E. Trade St. to make way for the new Uptown arena.
