Documentation of why and in what ways the Home Finance Building meets the criteria for designation set forth in N.C.G.S. 160A-400.5.

                        a.  Special significance in terms of its history, architecture, and/or cultural importance.  The Commission believes that the Home Finance Building does possess special historical significance for Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.  It bases its judgment on the following considerations.                          

1)      The Home Finance Building was designed by architect J. N. Pease Jr. and won an award as a successful representation of modernist architecture.

2)      The Home Finance Building documents the emergence of the automobile as the principal means of transportation to and from Center City Charlotte.                    

 

 b.  Integrity of design, setting, workmanship, materials, feeling and/or association.  The Commission judges that the description presented in the Center City Survey demonstrates that the Home Finance Building meets this criterion.
