Wachovia Trading Floor

Workplace Architecture + Design, working in conjunction with Gensler Architects, was retained by Wachovia Corporation (now Wells Fargo) to perform a feasibility study and establish space standards to implement a trading floor operation supporting 2,500 traders and the Investment Banking Groups in Charlotte NC. The study led to the decision to consolidate multiple leased spaces into a new tower and cultural campus that now anchors the south end of uptown Charlotte. Workplace A+D went on to consult with Wachovia on the interior architecture, modular wall concepts and vendor selection for the building. In addition, our firm was retained to design a state-of-the art educational, learning, and conference center that to be used jointly by Wachovia Corporation and Wake Forest University’s graduate MBA programs in Charlotte, NC. Social gathering spaces offer informal meeting environments and verandahs overlooking the adjacent cultural campus and Tryon Street. A large café and food service area is central to the conference spaces.
