The Qube originally built in the '60s as the Westcoast Transmission office building. The company was bought out by Duke Energy and then purchased by a Developer who converted it to a condo. Anthem Properties Development Company converted this building to residential use in 2006. It is technically unique because it was built from the top down. It is culturally significant because it was designed and constructed when the Cold War race for space supremacy inserted space-age considerations into architecture and interior design.
The central pillar was the first component of the building constructed. The floors were then hung from the top, using suspension-bridge technology - the goal a building that could withstand an earthquake.
