Great Glazing: Mint Museum Tower
The basics: The Museum Tower in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a 43-story luxury apartment complex, built on top of the Mint Museum. The glass-clad, 385,000-square-foot high-rise complements the contemporary architecture of the existing Mint Museum. Floor-to-ceiling windows give each apartment dramatic views of the city skyline. The glazing systems helped to manage construction challenges presented by the building’s height and lack of exterior accessibility, as the Mint Museum remained open throughout construction.
