    This building is going to look sweet on sunny afternoons. I cropped these photos to show only the most finished parts right now, and it really makes it easy to visualize how it’ll turn out.

    The glass panels on the outside are blue and reflective, The glass in the inset areas is greener and transparent. Its going to have great contrast. The front white 8 floor facade is ALL VIDEO WALL.

    New renderings have been posted. And a green element has been added to the facade of the corner hotel (1 Hotel). "the team is now proposing modifications to the project — specifically, the 1 Hotel component — to feature multiple environmentally friendly elements. It has enlisted Connecticut-based AgroScience Inc. to assist with a landscaped green wall feature that will be part of the exterior, according to the documents the city now has." https://www.nashvillepost.com/business/development/article/21067626/new-images-released-for-sobro-hotel-project

    I went to the zoo today and saw the new Sumatran Tiger exhibit for the first time. It’s done remarkably well-great design, beautifully executed! (The tigers are still getting acclimated to their new home and not as visible as most would prefer. But with some patience I got to see and photograph one of the fellows.) The next project added will feature Komodo Dragons, and will be located adjacent to the new tiger exhibit.

    I couldn't get the colors/gradients to match this particular test scheme - But this gives you an idea of the side lighting. It will definitely stand out - I'll be interested to see it all tied together along with the crown/pyramid.

    Charlotte, like all Southern cities that boomed, lost its share of older buildings due to economic activity. The reason Charleston, SC is basically intact is due to "Too proud to whitewash, too poor to tear down", or simply, it was poor, no one wanted to be there, so nothing happened. So let's keep some things in perspective: Charlotte didn't have a great deal to begin with. In the era we all seem to wish we had buildings from, Charlotte was relatively small. In 1930, the QC's population was only 80,000. By contrast, the populations of Atlanta and Birmingham were well over 250,000. They both had a great deal more to work with (including the all-important thing called "wealth", which we didn't have all that much of). What Charlotte has maintained is healthy inner-ring neighborhoods (although Myers Park is being dismantled nearly every day with giant additions and lot scrapes. And no one got off easy. Cities like New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, etc bulldozed huge areas of "urban blight" in the 1950s-1970s. Independence Mall (the unloved park in front of Independence Hall in Philly) was once three blocks of 18th and 19th Century architecture. Nearly all of Southwest DC was leveled to create L'Enfant Plaza. New York City and Rockefeller leveled eight blocks of Manhattan to build Rockefeller Center. Likewise, the construction of Lincoln Center was made possible by Robert Moses's leveling of 18 city blocks on the Upper West Side. Just the four blocks used for Lincoln Center displaced 7,000 working poor and over 800 businesses. So while I'll not make apologies for Charlotte, we do need to keep it in perspective. There's plenty of blame to go around.

    Took some screenshots from this video of Charlotte in 1969 and found their locations from Google Maps. It's always fascinating to see how different these locations look today than they did back in the late 60s. Wish I could time travel. The first location is Smith Jr. High School on Tyvola. Second is Tryon St. heading into Uptown. Those buildings in the foreground are where I-277 is today. The third is Freedom Dr. approaching I-85. That stretch was all wooded back then. Lastly, I-85 heading toward the airport before the Mulberry Rd. exit at the top of the hill. This was years before Billy Graham Pkwy would be a thing.
