  2. At what point should posts on an internet forum about real estate development scoops and rumors, be removed for having rumors and speculation? I think it defeats the purpose of the board. Its shouldn't be this boards responsibility to moderate hearsay about a project who can barely get off the ground (which hasn't even happened yet). If the tower falls apart because of this board, it wasn't strong enough of a project to be built anyway. Really infuriating.

  3. Yeah, I'm at AA. I'm hearing there's some strong possibility with Amsterdam on Delta. I don't know how true that is, but this was confirmed by some interesting info I can't really talk about right now. Also, there's a good possibility we could see another international airline here. Time will tell!

  4. This is a comment on another forum in a thread about the impact the MLS could have on Nashville: I don't even know where to begin addressing that level of stupidity. Some people really can't comprehend what's going on around them. I heard someone complaining of "all the condo towers going up" downtown. I asked which ones.... "Well that one is a hotel. That's one's an office building. Another hotel. Another hotel. Another office. Oh, yeah, that one is apartments...."

  5. My God, it all makes perfect sense now.... Tryon Place will be made public sometime in August, the 8th month 601 N Tryon, 28202 601 + 28202 = 28803 28803, less the middle 8. 28_03 Falcons blew a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl.

  6. Nashvylle, that's my understanding, as well. I do not understand the negativity. We are looking better and better in our chances for MLS....that alone is cause for celebration. If we can nail this thing, it's huge for our city and the soccer fans in the region. If it ends up downtown: great. If it ends up at the Fairgrounds: great. If it ends up in Midtown: great. Bring it on!

  9. Posting speculation about the built environment, and this project, isn't scooping a press release. It's driving quality built environment as much as any other way possible. Once again if we are moderating these boards like North Korean twitter in order to benefit a CORPORATION, I think the purpose of driving quality, critique and transparent conversation is VIOLATED. The entire ethos of this board is to have free and honest speculation. Might as well take the conversation somewhere else. Such a shame and sham.

  12. I'll do one better than direct messaging you. I'll use this as the excuse to do what I've wanted to do since those other posts were deleted. As I recall it, the announcement was that Ally Bank will take 400,000 square feet, that two law firms from Bank of America corporate we're moving over, and there was a third tenant mentioned but I can't recall now. The idea that deleting posts will somehow put the genie back in the bottle is absurd. Not to mention the idea that a person or a corporation could contact the mods and ask for something to be deleted. I find that offensive at best. If this gets

  16. I found this topic so I will post my vintage 1980s photos of Charlotte here since that is ancient history in this town. From the KJ vault of old photos street scenes from Uptown. 1. the old First Union Plaza boy was it ugly. (Masonic Temple would have been to the right) 2. The Grande Disc at NCNB Plaza look at the site of Polk Park across the street. 1981/1982 taken by yours truly.

  18. I bet some of you folks were the kids that got to open their Christmas presents before the 25th. I'm one of the least in the know people on this board, just be patient. This stuff always fleshes out. That said, in the mean time, feel free to speculate wildly. One of my Twitter sources has indicated to me that the delay on Tryon Place is due to the addition of a mammoth tusk clad lobby. However procurement of such ancient ivory has proven difficult and expensive, due to the abnormally warm winter in Siberia. Ill report more as I hear it.

  20. I didn't realize Megan Berry was the one building all those...and that she keeps all of Nashville's money stashed some-whurr! Also, are there reasons listed for their hatred of construction? I can understand the frustrations with traffic, but it seems like they might be just complaining about existence in general.

  23. I understand both sides of the argument here, and know how fragile these deals can be, but it's not our responsibility to protect these guys if the info has been leaked. The poster who "leaked" may or may not be related in any way to the project, but coming in after the fact and deleting everything that was said only reinforces that the poster was clearly onto something. It was probably not in that person's best interest to post such information, but that was their decision to make, its now up to Cresent/JLL/duke/accela/whomever to find their mole.

  24. It's not a matter of censorship. It's a matter of this board being partially responsible for killing a deal we all want to happen. Things are in motion and then when companies have to go on damage control because of some leaked information, that's not what this board should be about. Discussion, news and community, not hurting that by putting out information that could damage a project and then get pissy when damage control is enacted But if you can't comprehend that, that's fine I guess. Is what it is, do we have a dunce cap lying around anywhere?

  25. The post-removing issue is a tricky one. I am totally fine with posters here requesting mods to remove posts that they made (and followup quotes) if they discover the information should not yet be out and/or they decide after the fact that they need to protect their sources -- I think that mechanism allows us to be more free with information than we might be in a less flexible environment. However I am much less comfortable with requests from developers (who did not originally post the information) resulting in withdrawn posts. None of us would be happy if the city asked the mods to remove a p

  27. You have piqued an interest of mine. I am always surprised to see how many F500 and F1000 companies are located in the area. You get a real sense of just how much of an economic powerhouse Charlotte is. I did some poking around and found these public companies that have revenues of $1 Billion are headquartered here. Note - these are probably not all of them, but a good start: Bank of America - F500 Lowe's - F500 Duke Energy - F500 Nucor Steel - F500 Sonic Automotive - F500 Sealed Air - F500 Babcock & Wilcox Barings Coca Cola Bottling Consolidat

  28. ^ meh. Its just standard local news disease -- if it bleeds it leads. There are a similar number of articles that discuss the development boom created by the Blue Line (but fewer above-the-fold headlines about that). Unfortunately its disingenuous of the Observer to trumpet CATS "asking for more money" when the project remains (and has always been) slightly under budget. Election results tell us that the vast majority of Charlottean's support transit and are willing to pay for it and there are lots more clamoring for more rail soon.

  32. Killing this deal, Lincoln Harris can swoop in and steal the tenant creating the Duke & US Bank of America Ally Center and build a 1,000 footer and then we'll never have to hear that one poster saying why Charlotte doesn't have 1000 footers like NYC. Win.

  34. There's certainly some of that but there are other factors at play also, I think. First, Walt was a big believer in edutainment. If you look at the weekly shows he did on ABC/NBC, he made both smart shows and cartoons (sometimes both), because he approved the scripts he liked. Compare that with Michael Eisner's version which was pure entertainment. It made sense because Michael came up through ABC during the LOP days (Least Objectionable Programming, coined by Fred Silverman - essentially, program the dumbest thing you could because people would still watch; indeed, that was the smartest

Wonder if this isn't the time they announce the project, while the National (fake news) major media swarms south Charlotte.
