  1. New Hotels in/around Uptown

    Duke leases the land from the City. That ground lease expires in 2019 or 2020 I believe.
  2. New Hotels in/around Uptown

    The new hotel will be at 1 of 2 sites. The current Duke data center building on the same block as the Convention Center or the surface lot across Caldwell from the NASCAR Plaza office tower. City controls both sites already. BTW... staycationed at Ivey's a couple weekends ago and it was great. Very very cool renovation.
  3. 615 South College (Portman Office Tower near Westin)

    Yes...their space is on the 11th floor.
  4. I really like the design. Like others have said, it's unlike anything Charlotte has, and while I see the 1970s SoCal or 1960s Park Ave references, it's really not a ubiquitous style around the country (and I like the style). I am confused, though, what the hotel massing (maybe actual rendering) means for the existing McElroy law building at College/Stonewall. Asana just purchased it...so it looks like 1) they are flipping it to Crescent, 2) integrating it which doesn't show on this rendering, or 3) the placement of the hotel in the rendering isn't accurate.
  5. Amazon HQ2

    I think a core question that is unknown is... Does Amazon want the HQ2 city to be substantially similar to Seattle. Remembering back to school days, the debate is do they want something that is complimentary or supplementary? A possibly logical thought could be there is substantially large population of talented workers that would find riding transit, walking or biking to work not appealing. Cupertino where Apple just built there new HQ is about as un-urban a development as possible, though it is ground zero for talented workers. In fact, most tech companies are now opening Silicon Valley and San Francisco offices. My only point is I think owning what we are and are becoming is our best selling point, not trying to convince Amazon that we could be like Seattle if they just squint for 10 years.
  6. The Bad News Report

    This article makes it seem more likely that Charlotte actually remains the HQ. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/business/rockwell-collins-utc-ceos-speak-with-grassley-about-acquisition-20170915&ved=0ahUKEwj1_sTFg6rWAhXn5oMKHWIGA3IQqQIIKCgBMAE&usg=AFQjCNH_V8OM2jBDJBI7rqQmliCA4FrZ5Q I'm sure incentives will be involved...
  7. The Good News Report

    Would think River District is only place that fits all criteria. Camp North End or Scaleybark areas are interesting, but not sure can accommodate the scale. My money is on NoVa, with Atlanta second, and actually Charlotte third.
  8. Crescent Stonewall Station

    This project is in the revision phase at Meck Co land use, with one of the changes adding an additional floor. I assume this is an older rendering.
  9. Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    Mostly townhomes but I think also 1 condo building.
  10. 300 South Tryon and Kimpton Hotel

    If it was 8 years ago it would be called RÜF
  11. Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    Yes.... will be 114 townhouse units.
  12. Would have loved it if they made the bridge look like Queen Charlotte's green crown..... seriously.
  13. Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    Can confirm.... think it's Pulte.
  14. Not if they knew there cost overruns and they knew there would be redesign and/or scope change depending on funding.
  15. They filed for their land use permit yesterday.
