Hey Charlotte, BofA’s Tower in NY is Bigger Than Yours

By Dan Fitzpatrick

March 30, 2010

You can’t blame the folks in Charlotte for worrying that New York will one day become Bank of America’s world headquarters.

Just look at the height of BofA’s soon-to-be finished office tower in Midtown Manhattan. It stands at 945-feet. The bank’s mother ship in North Carolina is a mere 871 feet tall.

And if height alone isn’t enough to entice CEO Brian Moynihan to relocate to the Big Apple, the offices offer one of the best views of Manhattan, overlooking Sixth Avenue, 42nd Street and Times Square. Moynihan is expected to take an office on the 50th floor along with other high ranking executives. His predecessor Kenneth Lewis never had a permanent office in New York.

Still, the bank insists there are no plans to relocate from the Tar Heel state. Boosters of the North Carolina city might also point out that the New York building’s height advantage comes from the decorative spire on top. The Charlotte building has more floors.

Morons, no doubt.
NEW YORK. World's capital.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
