  1. I’m going to concur. The building as a whole is great. However, this entrance is straight out of The Cheesecake Factory’s design playbook.
  2. Not even just the bookstores. They have another concept retail store called 4-star. They’re rather aggressively expanding into numerous cities, including the aforementioned one in Crabtree. There is one glaring exemption on the list. Not sure why Charlotte got the snub on the expansion list. Perimeter in ATL and Crabtree in Raleigh are both listed as Coming Soon. Even Nashville has one of their bookstores. https://www.amazon.com/b/ref=s9_acss_bw_cg_ABFYSA_2a1_w?node=17608448011&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-1&pf_rd_r=BC9NRAG5276PY6GFNSAW&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=447ff123-178a-4d1e-95aa-168a402a6f1a&pf_rd_i=17608448011
  3. Beat me to it. I may not live in CLT anymore, but this brings me great joy. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/07/23/trump-return-briefing-room-thursday-defend-his-administrations-response-coronavirus-pandemic-minutes/5492998002/
  4. Phew boy. This may have been posted here already; but that presidential suite rate... I’ll submit that’s a bit out of my price range. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. It’s time for some good old fashioned eminent domain’in
  6. Ugh I really loved how JWM was turning out until that glass went in. What is with the sick obsession with super-polished blue glass? I was hoping for a darker navy or something closer to what BOACC has. Would’ve looked much more regal.
  7. Glass almost topped out on the new office tower. Is the land being cleared now on Terra Vista and Executive for the apartment/garage or the office tower from the master plan? Seems a little early to be building the third office tower. Unless the second has already been leased.
  8. Probably. And it’s not even near the oceanfront where most tourists stay. I think the only reason it is able to stay open is because of government subsidies. I stayed in it once while my company was trying to convince us to move up here. Stellar views for sure.
  9. You’re not wrong there. Maybe they’ve been updated since the mid/late-90’s; but I remember admiring the, even then, dated green marble floors and walls in some of the elevator lobbies during First Union’s Kids Day at Work every year. Getting to go out onto the “jukebox” balcony was breathtaking for a preteen future Skyline-Enthusiast. I’d be surprised if WF did that sort of thing anymore.
  10. Sort of. LU1/BOAT’s hotel doppelgänger, Westin-Town Center in Virginia Beach, is the tallest building in Virginia at 508ft to the top of the spire, 413 to the roof. So it’s all in who you ask. Difference being that the Intercontinental will be lost in CLT’s skyline while VB’s Westin sticks out like a sore thumb.
  11. My lone warning point on here came 14 years ago from that very same ray of sunshine. While a linear park or waterway would be a wonderful pipe dream, Charlotte is far too car-centric to allow either half of 277 to be demolished. For the foreseeable future a short cap would be the most financially viable given we were able to sell some of the air rights to help pay for it and use a block or so for a small urban park. Reinforce the sections that air rights will be sold for obviously; but park sections wouldn’t need much more supporting structure than a standard bridge would.
  12. 8, maybe 9, cranes in this one shot alone! All these new offices are making all those post-blue-line 4/5-story stick apartments look dumb. #CranePorn
  13. All I can see here is that you managed to kill off 7% of your battery in three minutes. I think it’s time for a charge!
  14. I can’t say I disagree. However, access to Craney Island from the entire metro would be prohibitively expensive unless the entire plan for the third crossing comes to fruition independent of the airport. Also, protected wetland waterfowl and planes don’t mix well.
