Duke Energy gives more details on planned tower, likely to be uptown Charlotte's third-largest

Duke Energy Corp. will start construction next month on its proposed uptown tower, which the company now says will be 40 stories tall. The extra floor — Duke had previously pegged the tower's height at 39 stories — is likely to make it the third-largest building on Charlotte's skyline.
