  1. Charlotte Gateway Station and Railroad Improvements

    The renderings were presented to City Council tonight. The link to the full PowerPoint presentation was posted on here Friday.
  2. Charlotte Gateway Station and Railroad Improvements

    Glad to finally see this project getting off the ground! The station platform is a simple yet elegant design that when lit up at night will get people's attention. It reminds me of the Ravenel Bridge in Charleston.
  3. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    The funny thing is that Urban Planet is in the least urban NYC borough: Staten Island.
  4. Maybe a holiday meal for the construction workers?
  5. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Airlines moving to the new Concourse A North Summer 2018 : United, Air Canada, Southwest, JetBlue, Frontier, Via Air Airline remaining in current Concourse A: Delta Airline expanding into current Concourse A: American American and Delta will be reconfiguring 16,000 sq ft of ramp level space on the current Concourse A once the other airlines move to the new Concourse A North.
  6. So excited to see this project coming to fruition! The design of the low rise seems to be pretty standard...the high rise looks ok...not sure why but it reminds me of Montreal. Most importantly this will be a big help to get First Ward park more activated in the evenings. Really need to see a rendering from the ground level since the only things that will see the rendering viewpoints are drones.
  7. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    You can bring food and drink on the trains as long as it is contained/sealed. You are not allowed to consume food or drinks on the train.
  8. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    Noticed 2 Coke machines at the 3rd St and CTC Stations. Looks like a sign of things to come.
  9. First Ward Urban Village and Parks

    Update in the Observer this morning. They are switching from wood frame to concrete and steel construction. Also they are increasing the size of the building to 400 apartments. So this really is a wholesale redesign of the building. No new renderings yet. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/article187521323.html
  10. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Charlotte airport is getting a lot of good national exposure on ABC News. They reported live from Charlotte last night for ABC World News and again this morning for Good Morning America. Stay tuned to ABC for more live reports from Charlotte today.

    Almost done.
  12. Charlotte Bike Sharing

    The V Bikes look more rugged than the other shareable bikes. However I haven't ridden one to confirm it's actually a better bike.

    Invasion of the Dockless Bikes!
  14. Maybe Pat should teach a course on how Republicans can actually win in Charlotte. I will say that back when Pat was Mayor he would drop in on our neighborhood meeting usually once a year....same with the At Large Republican City Council members....but that hasn't happened in years. If Republicans actually want to win a city wide race they need to get out of their South Charlotte comfort zone and actually invest in neighborhood level relationships.
