  5. Government gas subsidies, pro auto zoning and parking ordinances, along with modern transportation planning succeeded in eviscerating the downtowns of America's cities as thoroughly as the Allies carpet bombing campaigns did to the centers of downtown Dresden, Berlin, etc...etc., during WWII. We often use comparison maps showing the downtowns of US cities before the Federal Highway Act of 1956 and the results unleashed by it a generation later. They are stark. Pre War maps of the same area of Charlotte would show a rich fabric of buildings (in black), as opposed to large swaths of parking and highway ROW's by the late 1970's early 1980's (shown in white). Same are true for pre and post War Detroit, Cleveland, etc, etc. Viewed side by side with maps of European cities pre and post war and tears will well up in your eyes. And, unlike the War in Europe, we visited this devastation upon our cities voluntarily, even reallocating large amounts of National wealth for it....something we continue doing to this very day.

  9. NC added tech jobs at the 4th fastest rate in the USA after some big states like Texas, Florida and California according to CompTIA in 2021 the height of the pandemic. https://wraltechwire.com/2022/11/25/nc-adds-tech-jobs-businesses-at-one-of-fastest-rates-in-us-study-shows/ https://www.cyberstates.org/#interactiveMap?geoid=0__usa In total tech jobs we are #11 in country but gaining fast on Georgia. NC having multiple tech hubs really helps our state. Charlotte, Raleigh Durham and even Wilmington is burgeoning tech hub.

  10. well they have a couple floors in 201 South Tryon where their uptown branch is and several floors in Truist Tower. I think we discussed this before and came up with like 200K sq ft of space. But I am not sure. All I know is Truist Bank does not want a competitor in their Truist bank owned building.

  11. My thoughts are since most of our tech employees are with smaller companies we will not be affected as bad. Google employs some here as does Apple but they pale in comparisons with homegrown companies both in Charlotte and Raleigh Durham. Microsoft may have already laid off some people in NC as they have operations in both CLT and RTP. Cisco is trimming people too and they employ several thousand in RTP.

  15. while I like their neoclassical look they need a modern looking office building as they have the dome topped Phillips Place tower to be built anyway. They said 2024 late completion which means it would need to get started in the next month or so.

  17. Thanks for the postings. Looks like the new wine bar will be located in the newer retail sections of the VIDA apartment complex. I believe there about 4-6 sites for street level retail in the building.

  18. I can't remember the last time I drove a car to the airport and parked it in long term parking. It's such a joy being able to just pay a couple bucks, get on a train, not have to worry about traffic delays, and have a train drop me off inside the terminal. Of course, I'm usually traveling solo and rarely need more than one suitcase.

  20. Been playing around with this interesting tool I found where you can easily compare two maps at the same scale. Usefull for illustrating the relative density of various urban areas. https://acme.com/same_scale/ American cities I have lived in... Nashville vs. Philadelphia, PA: Nashville vs. Washington, DC: Nashville vs. Knoxville, TN: ...international cities... Nashville vs. Berlin, DE: Nashville vs. London, GB: (Judging by my back-of-the-napkin math, London inside the M25 has well over 10x as many people in an area 100sq miles smaller than Davidson County...but it feels *so* much bigger size-wise because of the variety of neighborhoods.) ...sprawling sun-belt cities... Nashville vs. Houston, TX: Nashville vs. Phoenix, AZ: (After seeing this I'm not convinced Phoenix isn't some dystopian vision of a suburban hellscape, by the way.) ...peer and near-peer US cities... Nashville vs. St. Louis, MO: Nashville vs. Portland, OR: Nashville vs. Jacksonville, FL: Nashville vs. San Diego, CA:

Hope the weather in the River City is nice, particularly if you're going out to visit family/friends today/tonight. Everyone - enjoy the day - stay safe and be well!

  32. You are correct about that. Totally non-descript, one story strip center. Matte finish, aluminum mullions between plate glass window storefronts. I think there was a uniform supply place there and/or maybe a dry cleaners. Possibly (and likely given its proximity to ORMC) a medical equipment supply place too. I'm thinking like three, maybe four businesses.

  33. This tower is going to totally transform SouthEnd. According to Wall St. analysts, there are strong signs that inflation is starting to come under control. It’s entirely possible that the economy will be booming by the time that this tower opens. Bring it on!
