The Wells Fargo Center 140 m 100, commonly known as the Wells Fargo Center, is a 460-foot (140 m) office skyscraper with 34 floors in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA. It was completed in 1998 and has been called "one of the most innovative designs of its time" by some critics. The tower was designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli and is owned by CBRE Group Inc.. It is the second-highest building in Winston-Salem behind The Franklin Centre, which stands 528 feet (160 m) high.
The Wells Fargo Center was built after the 1997 tornado that devastated parts of Winston-Salem. The building's design includes large glass walls on all sides to allow people to see into the center from outside. This helps to keep people safe by reducing incidences of crime or panic breaking out inside the building.
The tower was awarded several architectural awards when it was completed including a Gold Medal from the American Institute of Architects for being the best office building in the United States. It is also recognized as one of the first environmentally friendly buildings due to its use of natural light and solar power and its recycling program.
Wells Fargo acquired the naming rights for this building but later sold them to Korean company Lotte Holdings for $10 million.
