The small forest of tower cranes in Charlotte is getting a new addition: 500 East Morehead, an office building under construction just outside of uptown.

The building, by Beacon Partners, is adjacent to the Dowd Y. The foundations for a blue tower crane are in place, and you’ll be able to watch it rise over the Internet via construction camera (If you’re into that sort of thing). Here’s a link, with a time lapse available of construction up until now.
